2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a pale clear yellow color ale with below average head with average retention. Aroma of orange and very subtle coriander. Taste is very light with limited spice (lack of coriander) with some limited sweetness/floral aspect. Carbonation is good but body is too thin. Watery feeling on the aftertaste kind of ruin this one for me.

Straw color with a small white head. Light bodied, moderately dry, quenching, spicy. Very slight orange peel notes in flavor profile. Ho-hum.

bottle-I have been wanting to sample this beer for quite some time. Belgian Wits are probably my fav belgian style for some reason. pours a hazy orange hue with a nice white head. Lemon, orange, ginger, banana, citrus (papaya) and corriander come out of my trippel karmelot glass with avengence! zesty flavors with some priclyness on the tongue. some bubblegum aromas come out as the beer warmed a little. Refreshing-lite body that would work great on a hot NM day. Light corriander on the finish. This is a very solid wit in my book!

The aroma isnít too sharp compared to Ommegangís usual fare but they are aiming at a summer wheat beer here. I can definately taste the lemon but on the whole the beer seems kind of like a watered down wheat beer. I do like the mouthfeel. Soft it is, intriguing no. They should spike this beer with flavor as they do with their other brews. This one makes me want to grab a Paulaner hef really bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark yellow that looked like gingerale when poured; fizzy head of large bubbles that very quickly faded away. Clovey, lemony scent mixed with ginger and a touch of corriander. Lemony notes. Flavour is a little sweet with mostly buttery lemon and clove, a little bit of malt and corriander and perfect bittering. Light bodied and smooth. I would have liked more carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer divorces the 12-ounce brown bottle and sets in the glass a beclouded lemon yellow with a modest creamy white head and the residual lace a velum like sheet upon the glass. Nose is sweet with malt, hints of lemon-lime, coriander and spices, the start is lightly sweet and the top is light in feel upon the palate. Finish is stinging in its acidity with the hops delectable in their unassuming spiciness, quite dry aftertaste a fine example of the style, quite a thirst quencher
