This beer is an American take on the Belgian Wit style. Golden in color with a fizzy head this beer has the orange coriander spiciness but without the free floating yeast (read filtered) or the cloudy unmalted wheat. What Kristal Weisse is to a Hefe Weisse; White Lighting is to a Wit. That is, all of the flavors are there and with it being filtered it makes the body light and the finish crisper and more refreshing. Not a classic Wit but it is even more refreshing on these warm summer days.
