I have been drinking the Hitachino Nest White Ale for some time, but I find it quite hard to get in the UK. I have been trying to find an alternative which is similar in taste.

It is similar to a Belgian Wheat Beer, but very light and citrusy. I like many Belgian Wheat Beers or Whit Beers like Blance de Namur, and more popular ones like Hoegaarden. They are very nice, but I am looking for a more light and citrusy version similar to the Hitachino to try.

Does anyone have any recommendations?


That's a tough question. Most of the witbiers I've had are locally distributed in the US, so you'll never find them in the UK.

Here are two lighter ones with a nice citrus kick that you might be able to get your hands on:

  1. St. Bernardus Blanche (Witbier)
  2. Ommegang Witte
  • Thanks I will check if our local world beer supplier can get these! – Phil Mar 29 '17 at 16:25
