White

This is a category of beers based on wheat, which are very refreshing, generally flavoured ( coriander, orange peel, etc..). Specialities of the Louvain region, the white beers, which are so called because their pale colour, were originally made from barley ( about 45%), wheat ( 45 %) and oats ( 10%). After the First World War production was stopped, following restrictions on oats and wheat. Since then production has started up again in the region, but only with barley and wheat. Hoegaarden is the beer mainly concerned.
