Belgian witbier (sometimes called “wit”) is a variety of wheat beer, where about 50% of the barley malt is replaced by raw wheat. Spices and flavorings are sometimes added, but much of the flavor is because of the varieties of yeasts used and the what sugars. Wits are traditionally unfiltered, giving them a white or hazy look. Similar German beers are called weissbier, and Americans simply call these wheat beer.
Missing Links’ Paradise Ale is a light and refreshing ale brewed using Belgian pilsner and wheat malts. Paradise seeds and other spices combine with sweet orange peel for a balanced spice and fruit profile that doesn’t overpower the light malt and hop flavors.
