Belgian white ales are very pale in color and are brewed using unmalted wheat and malted barley and are spiced with coriander and orange peel. coriander and light orange peel aroma should be perceived as such or as an unidentified spiciness. phenolic spiciness and yeast flavors may be evident at mild levels. these beers are traditionally bottle conditioned and served cloudy. an unfiltered starch and yeast haze should be part of the appearance. the low to medium body should have some degree of creaminess from wheat starch. the style is further characterized by the use of noble-type hops to achieve low hop bitterness and little to no apparent hop flavor. this beer has no diacetyl and a low to medium fruity-ester level. mild acidity is appropriate.
The number one reason is craft beer tastes better than the "beer water" that is mass produced and mass marketed by the big beer companies. Craft beer tastes better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.
Oh yeah! Craft beers can pack a punch. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% ABV.
