Our brewers developed Weyerbacher Blanche just after their trip to Belgium during the winter of 2000. Blanche, meaning “white”, gets its name from the light colored haze suspended in this pale-gold brew. The haze results from the high proportion of wheat used and from the yeast that remains in this unfiltered brew. White beers are well known as the principal product from Hoegaarden, a small town in a wheat-growing region east of Brussels.
Light, cloudy and smooth, Weyerbacher Blanche brings you authentic Belgian-style flavor along with handcrafted quality and freshness. Just try a bottle of this thirst-quenching brew. In the nose you’ll notice a light spiciness from the coriander and dried Curacao orange peels. Overall, you’ll find a mild and refreshing 4.6% ale with a clean finish that follows with just a hint of tart spiciness. It is available April through July.
The name “Blanche” was retired in 2012 and the exact same bee is now available as “White Sun Wit“.
