This is not a bad witbier (my first). The coriander is a bit overwhelming. Next time I will cut it back to 50% or 25%. I wanted to try a little bit of wheat and some unmalted wheat. The unmalted wheat gives that special flavour. The Wyeast 3944 gives it that phenolic character. The ph of the beer at bootling was 3.7 so I did not do any additional souring with lactic acid. Try this one and let me know how it turns out! I made 3 fruit marmelade with the extra bitter orange peel and goes good as whole chunks in a Weissbier or lager!
