COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang Witte, a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive, Ommegang Witte is this summer's version of spicy intrigue and refreshing flavor.

AOBF 04 draught. Pours a moderately pale white gold, sparkly and quite hazy with a large foamy white head. Aroma is heavily yeasty, some bubble gum and light lemon zest. Flavor is mostly dry, yeast and light bubble gum, touches of bananas and oranges on the finish. Extremely delicate and crisp, with a medium body and a spritzy carbonation. Touches of astringency and a paper-like feel from the coriander. Bottle conditioned. I really enjoyed this, as I prefer a dry wit to a sweeter one.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Art of Beer ’04: Cloudy yellow with huge fluffy head. Fruit/flower aroma. Very crisp and refreshing with dry citrus palet. Nothing too amazing, but very drinkable.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Art of Beer Festival 2004: Murky light orange/amber color with a large foamy white head. Banana and orange aroma, watery body, ends dry. This beer needs to be kicked up a notch.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Nice big rocky head. Aromatic as heck - smells of fruity grass and sweet plums. Effervescnt light golden in color. Nice tart apple and lemon flavor. Leaves a bit of a sour yeast finish. This is a fine brew!

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Once again, I have to hand it to the brewers at Ommegang. This is equally as good as most Wits produced in Belgium and better than some others. Very cloudy golden color, with big, frothy head and a nice effervescent quality. Aroma and flavor of lemon, banana, some cloves and some earthy tones. Tart and tangy, just the way a Wit should be. The only thing I would like to see would be a little more yeast in the bottle, which would add an even more interesting flavor with a nice, silty mouthfeel.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Yellow color with creamy white head. sweet banana aroma. Tart lemon, sweet orange and light bubblegum taste. Hardly any bitterness at all. Just a bit of an effervescent mouthfeel. This stuff is so smooth you could drink it all day. That would be a good day.

Tall white head. Cloudy golden body. Citrus aroma with hints of bread. Crisp citrus wheat flavor. Lightly spiced and sweetened. A decent witte.

CapFlu (4475) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
(Daught) Pours the colour of pineapple juice. Bland lemon and banana nose and flavour. Somewhat of a boring brew considering the brewery? Cerrtainly lacked complexity.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2004
Looks like I’m the first to rate the bottled version of this. Hazy pale golden color with a large white head. Tart wheat aroma with hints of grass and citrus. Dry, slightly bitter with some earthy notes. Corriander hardly noticed with a hint of lemon in the finish. Not bad but an unremarakable wit.

Bubblegum, banana, light spices, citrus in the aroma. Pale lemonade colour with thin head. Short flavour - initial spiciness and a touch of fruit. Well carbonated but a bit thin. On tap at TapNY festival.
