Pushing Daisies is a Belgian-style witbier. Witbier (white beer in Flemish) is a beer style that almost went extinct before its revival in Europe in the late 1960’s, and is now a popular spring and summer beer style in Europe and the United States.
Witbiers contain at least 50% wheat and are typically spiced with coriander and bitter orange peel and potentially several other herbs or spices. This combination of wheat, corriander, orange peel and phenolic Belgian yeast creates a wonderfully bready, citrusy and spicy beer that is perfect for Spring.
In Pushing Daisies, we added a generous dosing of chamomile flowers, which is a member of the daisy family. This gives our witbier pleaseant notes of floral citrus and lemongrass, creating an interesting yet delicate twist on the traditional style.
