Schneeweißchen & Orangenrot (‘Snow White and Orange Red’)

This Belgian wheat speciality is straw-coloured, boasting a cloudy appearance and a pronounced head. Its pleasing liveliness and slightly sour notes have an energising effect on the palate. The fragrance is reminiscent of wheat beer, orange peel, coriander and citrus. The body is impressively thin and mild, carried by fruity aromas. The finish is dry and whets the appetite for the next sip.

The notes of Dr. Kiener: 

“Why my research trip took me to Belgium sounds like a fairy tale: quite circuitously, I came across an original manuscript for an early Brothers Grimm story: “Snow White and Orange Red”. The title suggested that this had to be an unpublished first edition. Unfortunately, the text was unreadable until the word “Witbier” on page 1, which immediately grabbed my attention. And so I packed my bags, headed for Belgium, and hiked from one picturesque village to the next to track down the secret of this beer. When the sun went down and kissed the wheat on the horizon, I suddenly had it: a straw-yellow, sparkling wheat beer with orange peel and coriander! And if the Brothers Grimm hadn’t started writing fairy tales for children, they would never have raved about the distinct head of this beer speciality.”
