A true wit beer must be made of at least 25% wheat malt in combination with barley malt. Belgian wit beers are naturally cloudy since they are unfiltered.
Wittekerke charms you with its own character, smooth taste and a unique delicious aroma. A very pleasant drink, light in alcohol with a crisp and refreshing flavor. Wittekerke is always served cold, but in taking your time to enjoy it, you will find more flowery and spring flavors towards the end of your glass. Although the hoppy bitterness is an underlying taste, it is never dominant. Perfect white head.
Wittekerke is a fictitious name for a typical Flemish town, like hundreds of villages in Flanders with a name ending on Kerke (church) or Kapelle (chapel). Witte means white in English, thus the translation of the name is White Church. The Bavik brewery has since a long time brewed its own authentic wit beer under the “Bavik Wit” label, but the brewery chose to change the name in cooperation with the producers of the Belgian sit-com “Wittekerke.” The actors drink Wittekerke during the show.
Wittekerke is now the best selling wit beer in Belgium off-premise, and was voted several years in a row the best Belgian wit beer by Belgian beer connoisseurs.
