A site where a man with far too much interest in beer gets to write about it.
I liked the entry-level thing they do (which they don't call Singel, but should), but I didn't think much of this at all.Witte is white rather than wheat, surely. Witbier a la Hoegaarden is certainly what it tastes like.
I haven't seen the 'single' either, I'm so out of touch. I'm sure witte will be white, but I'm sure it's also got wheat in it so wheat beer will do me.
St Bernardus have had a witbier in their range for a while too.
The older I get the less I know. I remember them when they were St Sixtus.
It is a wheatbeer, not a wit: no herbs/spices. They use Saphir hops which give a citrussy flavour.
Stroll on. Why do they call it 'witte', then?
What's in a name?

La Trappe used to brew a Pilsner.
