AVERY WHITE RASCAL
One of the oldest styles of beer in commercial production, wit, or white beer, dates back to at least the 1300s. Once confined to a small region of Belgium, white beers have become increasingly popular in the United States. They are typically brewed with equal parts malted barley and unmalted wheat, and it’s the unmalted wheat that gives the beer its cloudy, or 'white' appearance. Wit beers predate the usage of hops as a flavoring agent, relying instead on coriander and curaçao orange peel to balance the malt sweetness.
True to style, Avery White Rascal is a shimmering lemon yellow, crowned by a tight white head. Belgian yeast and clove feature prominently in the aroma, followed by coriander and citrus notes. Wheat, citrus, and spice are up front on the palate, with subtle nuances of banana midway through and a lively, bitter orange finish.
Serve in a flute or tulip glass at 40-45F.
Suggested Food Pairings: Avery White Rascal is delicate and refined and complements a wide range of cuisine. Enjoy it with Morbier, Leek, Pea & Wit Soup or grilled branzino.
