(Houston, TX) – Saint Arnold Brewing Co., the oldest independent craft brewery in Texas, is releasing White Noise, a Belgian-style Witbier, as the new winter seasonal to complement the relatively mild Southern winter climate.
White Noise was originally a one-off beer created for the Free Press Summer Festival held during the height of Houston summers. The brewers decided the traditional Witbier fits the Southern winter environment better than heavier beers. “As we were thinking about our winter seasonal, we realized our winter temperature is similar to a summer climate in other parts of the country,” says Brewing Operations Manager Stephen Rawlings. “What better way to complement Texas winters than to have a crisp, citrusy, Belgian-style Witbier!”
The new seasonal is a traditional Witbier based on the Celis White recipe with healthy amounts of coriander, orange peel, and some oats for a little extra body. The nose is citrus, spices and pine with a light banana. For this version, the brewers dry-hop it with Citra hops. The citrus of the orange peel blends nicely with the citrus from the hops and the coriander creates liveliness on the finish.
White Noise is now available on draft and in 12 oz. bottles and cans in Texas and Louisiana.
Original Gravity: 1.049
Final Gravity: 1.009
Bitterness: 26.6 IBU
