Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
Wittekerke Wit Bier
Brouwerij Bavik N.V.
Rijksweg 33
Harelbeke-Bavihove 8531, Belgium
Est. 1894

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.0 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Translucent straw yellow in color.
Yeasty. Orange zest and wheat grain for aromas.
White bright, fluffy soapy head.
Soft carbonation.
Amazing hanging lacing on glass, though the head dissipates fairly soon.
Crisp, clean taste with slight citrus zestiness.
Light body. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
The neck of the can states in three languages, "BIRRA BIANCA", CERVEZA BLANCA" and "BELGIAN WHITE BEER". Internationally renown, Wittekerke is a universal word for refreshment. A pale white wheat beer, it is easy to drink regardless of the country you are in, or the language you speak.

Cool witbier in a can. I've also had it on tap. I guess you could say that's just a bigger can.  Wittekerke is equally refreshing and delicious from either can, if you dig a wheat -style beer.
