Belgian pils and German pilsen (made from hops harvested from the Hallertau region, in Germany), considered as two polarities, come together in this unique refreshing brew.
Take a handful of unexpected ingredients, such as coriander, citrus, ginger and curaçao (a liqueur flavored with dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit), mix it together with your everyday beer components, and voilà, you have this white beer !
