The abbey beer Steenbrugge Wit-Blanche is a wheat beer brewed with 40% unmalted wheat and 60% malt. It has a refreshing taste and a fruity, slightly smoked fermentation aroma in combination with the subtle Bruges herb mixture 'gruut', with an emphasis on coriander and curaçao. Beer of high fermentation. The secret of Steenbrugge abbey beer is the unique “gruut” blend of herbs and spices, which gives the beer its delicious flavour. Every town used to have its own beer, each with its own individual character. In Bruges that character was determined by a blend of herbs and spices that brewers were obliged to purchase from the city’s herbs and spices shop, known as the “Gruuthuse”. In Steenbrugge Wit-Blanche this medieval tradition is continued. Steenbrugge Wit-Blanche is fermented with its own Steenbrugge yeast strain of high fermentation, which gives a phenolic smoked aroma together with a perceptible fruitiness.
