This beer is more about yeast and spices flexing their muscles, while the wheat does its part to provide a beautiful hazy appearance, improved head retention and a fuller mouthfeel. Waimea and Citra hops, not being a traditional selection for this style, bring some citrus notes (especially in the nose of the brew) and all of Wallonia’s 22 IBUs. This is a good beer to recommend to patrons that tend to dislike hops and bitterness, but want to try something a little more complex than a Lager.

Wallonia Wit is named for the Southern (primarily French-speaking) region of Belgium that borders France, as opposed to the Northern (primarily German-speaking) Flemish region. The name “Wallonia” is derived from the Germanic word “Walha”, which translates to “the strangers.”
