It’s a 400 year old style that disappeared in the 1950’s, later brought back by Pierre Celis in Hoedaarden and has steadily grown in popularity.
Fragrance: moderate sweetness (often with light honey and/or vanilla notes) with slight grain aromatics and spiced wheat. Moderate coriander scent and low hop aroma. Appearance: light golden colour. Beer may be blurred due to starch mist and/or yeast with white and dense, froth. With a pleasant sweetness and orange peel fruitiness. Refreshing with a dry end taste. Hop bitterness is medium. Mouth-feel: light body, often with a softness and slight creaminess arising from the non malted wheat.
