Beers by Type » White

This style of wheat is pale yellow to gold in colour, with a light, tart, sometimes fruity finish. Whites are soft, quenching and light-bodied - a result of the unmalted wheat useed along with the malted barley. Typical of wheat beer, whites are sometimes bottle conditioned (yeast left, or added, to the bottle to continue the fermentation process, creating natural carbon dioxide, higher alcohol content and sediment at the bottom of the bottle). Bottle conditioning can create a slightly bitter yeast taste; as a result, this style displays varying degrees of clarity. Belgian-style whites are mildly hopped and may contain notes of orange and coriander. Belgian white beers are often made with raw unmalted wheat, as opposed to the malted wheat used in other varieties.
