3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, pale yellow. Nice but diminishing head and lace. Aroma of yeast, clove, corriander, wheat and more. Nice wheat flavors with hints of oranges and spices. Very soft with an enjoyable wheat like sweetness. Good brew.

HMM. Hard to say about this one. I love this brewery, but I have to say that thi smay be the lamest Wit that I have had. First sip was pure lactic and then became a little more mild after that, but was there for the remainder of the beer. Very nice color and head though.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy straw-gold, massive white, firm head. Lovely nose, amazingly wheaty, bits of clove and yeast. Also smells quite a bit like buttered fresh corn on the cob, but not in a "crappy macro filled with adjuncts" sort of way. Flavor is very spicy, some yeastiness, also a bit citrusy. Bit fizzy. Ends quite dry.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright white, bubbly head. Zippy aroma of citrus (lemon), wheat and yeast. Color is a light gold with decent carbonation. Flavor is light and crisp. Refreshing and easy to drink with more citrus fruit and wheat. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. Leaves a dry feeling in the mouth. A decent belgian white.

A nice drinkable wheat beer...but a little lacking the spice character. I had to go looking for the corriander... very nice orange profile and a slight funkyness (cork?) this will be a summer stocker for me on those hot days. Great price too !

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light lemony aroma over a pure golden color. The flavor was a little lacking from what I was expecting, but it was very refreshing.

First beer I’ve sampled from Ommegang since the takeover by Duval. This Wit is true to style, light golden color, citrus undertones and light bodied. Not a beer I would expect from Ommegang, personally I’ll stick with their heavier Belgian beers.

On draft at Monk’s. I really wanted to like this beer. But this pint came after a Dupont Saison, and despite its good looks, I found it lacking. Should have gone with Hoegarden?
