Saint Arnold White Noise – Beer of the Week!
A crisp, citrusy Belgian-style Witbier. The recipe begins with the Witbier we brewed in our Icon series in 2015, which itself is based on the original Celis White recipe with some oats added for a little extra body. To this, there is a dryhop addition of Citra hops that amps everything up. The nose is citrus and spices with a light banana. There is a pleasant round body that is light and creamy. The citrus of the orange peel blends nicely with the citrus from the hops and the coriander creates a liveliness on the finish.
This beer is easy to drink while also having incredible complexity. Perfect for a Texas “winter.”
“The more I sip into it the more richness I’m tasting past the loud lemon, reminding me more and more of the previously mentioned pasta, except this time with rich body reminding of the rich fattiness of shrimp and butter. Fresh, crisp carbonation with as much bite as the citrus. Phenomenal.”

“Flavor wise I was really, really surprised by how sweet and floral this brew was, would have never guessed it was a witbeir. Might have had something to do with the fact that its been aged over a year, but it was really sweet, not bitter, not too wheaty/grainy at all, reminds me more of a heavily citra hop based IPA than anything. Definitely a great summer brew, could easily session these all day.”
“It was nice and crisp, just the right level of carbonation. I was pleasantly surprised at how drinkable this was, I had a handful of other summer beers at the same time and this one took the cake as the best, I would definitely drink this again if i had the chance.”
