The "Spessiari" is the first of the seasonal beers of the Malt Kingdom.
It is a Blanche or white beer, in French Bière Blanche, and known by the Flemish term Witbier (or simply Witte). It is a quality of beer native to northern Europe and precisely refers to the Flemish, Belgian and northern French brewing tradition despite being also produced in the Netherlands.
The peculiarity of the "Spessiari" is that the starting raw materials differ in a certain way from the "classic" ones: in fact, not only barley maltis used, but also soft wheat andoats.
The "Spessiari" is also characterized by a typically pleasant and particular appearance, of very light color,and it is precisely this characteristic that gives it the title of "white beers". Another peculiarity of Spessiari is precisely the spiciness (as the name recalls), in particular thanks to the use of coriander and zest of bitter oranges.
Hops are used only in small quantities in order to give a note of bitterness without covering the spicy flavor. This recipe is very ancient, of directly medieval derivation: in this historical period, in fact, the beers were flavored not with hops, but with a particular aromatic mixture that took the name of gruit.
