Tha Glazen Toren Jan De Lichte is an Imperial White Ale, a bigger 7% version of a traditional Belgian Witbier. It pours cloudy and has refreshing grapefruit and coriander flavors with a long, dry finish. The Belgian white ale is refreshing and elegant in its simplicity. Drinkers will enjoy a grainy bread-like malt flavor, orange and lemony citrus fruits and a touch of coriander, or other spices. The key to all the flavors in Witbier is balance; none should outshine the others. This base style is about 400 years old.
