Witbier

A refreshing, elegant, tasty, moderate strength wheat-based ale.

Pleasant sweetness (often with a honey and/or vanilla character) and a zesty, orange-citrusy fruitiness. Refreshingly
crisp with a dry, often tart, finish. Can have a low wheat flavor. Herbal spicy flavors, which may include coriander and other spices, are common should be subtle and balanced, not overpowering.  Hop bitterness is low to
medium-low (as with a Hefeweizen), and doesn’t interfere with refreshing flavors of fruit and spice, nor does it persist
into the finish.

Commercial Examples:

Anvil Brewery’s White Anvil (4% ABV)

What The Beersluts have to say:

Theo from The Anvil brews a great Belgian Witbier with whiffs of coriander. Fruity, dry, slightly hazy and light bodied.
