Let’s get the semantics out of the way as quickly as possible. Belgian beers come from Belgium. Americans brew Belgian-inspired beers. Recently that’s included very popular beers variously known a Blanche, Belgian White, White, Wit and more. White beers were once all the rage in Belgium, then basically disappeared before Pierre Celis revived the style in the town of Hoegaarden. He later moved to Austin, Texas, and introduced Americans to Celis White.
There’s a lot more that that to White beers. What about the use of spices and unmalted wheat? Were these beers once “wilder?” Why the heck are they cloudy?
Whoops. You guys are supposed to be asking the questions. What would you like to know about Wit beers, both brewing and drinking them? Please leave your question as a comment.
