“Summer is all about outdoor activity and the beers of summer typically fit this theme and should provide refreshment. That doesn’t mean bland or without character. A refreshing beer can be full of character and still be a part of a sunny summer day.”
When crafting a witbier, avoid overdoing any one aspect of it. Don’t go crazy with the spices. Keep the hopping level restrained. Don’t let fermentation temperatures rise too high. Don’t sour the beer excessively. Your beer should be flavorful, but all the flavors should be balanced.
