We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

We’re now officially into the spring season, which is the perfect time of year to enjoy the wonderful world of effervescent, citrus-kissed Belgian wheat ales. This ghostly pale brew may look like the undead, but it’s bursting with life. Its cloud-like white head tosses off aromas of orange and lemon, and the taste is all hay and wheat and lemon and coriander, with just a hint of musty yeast to make things interesting. The light body and dry finish let Witte drink almost like a light beer, but a light beer with flavor. If you’re a fan of Hoegaarden, Allagash White, or Blue Moon, try this one instead next time you’re at City Tap House, Devil’s Den, Prohibition Tap Room and a half-dozen other locations.
