Witbier or bìere blanche ("white beer") is a wheat ale style that originated in Belgium hundreds of years ago. Usually made from unmalted wheat with barley malt, witbiers have a hazy pale color; they are seasoned not only with hops but with spices - Belgian brewers have added herbs, spices, and fruit to beer for centuries. After fading in popularity in the early 1900s, witbier sales have roared back during the past 20 years.
