History & Style
The roots of witbier (white beer) can be traced to the 14th century, originating in the monasteries of the Louvain area in Brussels, when brewing with hops had not yet become the norm. Rather, witbiers were the product of locally grown wheat, barley and oats, as well as herbs and spices. Witbiers are characteristically unfiltered, citrusy and spiced, but have adapted over the years to accommodate contemporary tastes. The Blood Simple label artwork was created to be aesthetically clean and typography driven, with colours similar to those of a blood orange.
Blood Simple pours orange with a white foam. The aroma is citrusy with orange pith notes. The flavour is tart and fruity. The finish is refreshing and juicy.
