Overall a quite nice witte. Pours a very cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells of lemon and wheat. Taste is very well balanced, with lots of wheat and lemon. Had on tap at Tiburon Taps Beer Festival.

Pours a hazy hay, strongly carbonated with a large, lumpy and fast-dissolving foam head. Strong and pleasant yeast aroma. Bright and fruity yeast taste on a very fizzy palate. Light yeast aftertaste with a lightly sticky mouthfeel.

Bottle received in trade from the cold, crooked fingers of Helsdon -- thanks man! -- at the Toronto Ratebeer Throwdown of Summer ’14 pours watery lemon with a slight suggestion of foam on top. Helsdon kept assuring me that this brew wasn’t that good & I’m not so sure as it is a pretty level headed interpretation of the style. I get lemon, a spritz of orange, a watery version of the banana Popsicles I used to eat in the ’80’s & a strong bite of carbonation. Enjoyable.

On tap poured into a shaker. Traditional banana and spice notes hit the nose followed by a sweet candy and orange note. It pours a hazy yellow with a light effervescence. The white, creamy head reduces to a light ring with a dusty surface and a small bubbled, runny lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The medium-light bodied beer has a oily texture and a soft carbonation. The finish is primarily lemon and spice with a bit of banana. The aftertaste is bready and mostly clean

I got excited when I saw Ommegang made a Witbier, so this was a real disappointment. Watery, flavorless, and so much carbonation it burns the mouth. They make so many great beers at Ommegang, but this is not one of them.
