COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang Witte, a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Yellow hazy color, filmy white head & some islandic lacing. The aroma is very yeasty with some citric notes & light hops; a touch of clove & wheat, some sulpher. The flavor is tangy with some wheat. The yeast is sharp and tangy; harsh. Light esters and moderate phenols. Decent belgian style offering from Ommegang but noticably at the bottom of the bunch from what I’ve had.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2004
We’ve got the traditional cloudy gold/yellow with a thin film of white head and some spotty lacing. Heavy aromas of clove and citrus. Lemons and oranges stand out nicely. Great malt and wheat backing. It was a good nose. Musky flavors of wheat. Citrus is big. Clove is there as well. The lemons come out for more. The oranges are there as well. Bittering hops and some floral. Tangy palate and a thin body. Finishes in the spicy, hoppy, citrusy department. Good stuffs.

By the playbook this is - beautifully spiced, with that luminescent bright golden color - pepper and coriander distinguishable, lemon peel, mmm mmm - luscious - a tad more body and this is up there with the best wits in the world.

Bah. Not up to snuff, particularly when compared head to head with Hoegaarden. Kind of flat, and not particularly complex. Typical Ommegang move. They’re overrated in my book.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 This was the best of three wit brews I’ve had, but nonetheless, nothing to write home about. Flavaros of the same, but with a better finish.

Yellow gold color. Aroma is fruity and grassy. A medium to light bodied wit. Malts are fruity and sweet. Orange, bananas and spice. Light and refreshing. Nice bright yeasts. Lemons, orange peels and a touch floral. A nice light and refreshing wit. Nice lemony finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Shag (2765) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2004
This wit did not excite me too much but it was quite refreshing. A murky yellow appearance with a moderate head. The aroma is wheat and citrus. The flavor is lemons, bread, and white grapes. It was a good easy sippin beer but not very complex.

Almost clear hue, very clean taste. Almost dry. Very carbonated. Not a bad drink, but not sure if I’d come back to this one compared to their other beers

750 mL Corked and Caged, fairly young: slightly cloudy, canary yellow…fine-bubbled starched head – forms as a ring around the edge of the glass…sweet floral aroma with bits of citrus infused wheat. Strongly peppered palate with coriander, orange bits and apples. Fizzy carbonation that runs around in the month and grew on me. Dry wheaty finish. Not my favourite style, but this one was great…
