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

Not much aroma. This is not a good beer. More like an American wheat than a Belgian witbier. Or maybe a bad German hefe. Not one I’d recommend from this brewery. Too thin and wheaty.

This is simple a good Witbier that is write on par with what I’d expected from the style and from Ommegang. It is loaded with orange peel, apple banana and coriander flavors in the smell and taste. It is refreshing light and crisp in the mouth. Certainly an easy drinking summer beer or a good compliment to seafood (as recommended by Tom Peter’s. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Very enjoyable, spicy but not overwhelmed by straightforward citrus. A bit bready but not heavy. Refreshing but not a lawnmower beer, something to relax with on a warm day.

A lemoncello like color..especially since there is only a drop of foam...I would clap for it..... but no standing ovation

Olney Beer & Fine Wine tasting. Pours a cloudy golden. Lemon and coriander on the nose. Tart at the forefront, before evening out to some citrus notes, orange at the edges. Very refreshing, nice-balanced white beer.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2006
From the tap, pours a lot like the picture on the top of this page. Thick white head and a pale orange color. Smells typically like bananas and citrus, though more of an orange peel aroma than anything else. Tastes fully of orange citrus, light bananas, and some bubblegum. Really a good one here on a hot summer night.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a sizable bubbly white head. Aroma is very full of citrus notes (ornage, lemon), with a bit of spice and some yeastiness. Flavor is much the same. Crisp and refreshing.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Draft at Coles in Buffalo. Pours hazy golden yellow. Looks like a typical wit. Citrus and estery aroma. As far as wits go, much drier and less sweet in the initial flavor, but a nice wheat malt backbone. Very orange juice acidic type finish in flavor and texture. Well done, but personally...I Like my wits a little sweeter

I made the mistake of chasing a Rochefort Abt 10 with this brew. It just didn’t work for me. Obviously they are two totally different styles. But I had no business switching directly from one to the other. Further proof that I can only take a little belgian-ness at a time. Alas.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Draught. Hazy yellow color with bubbly white head that laced the glass. Yeasty, fruity and spicy with the usual orange and coriander. Also an unusual light bitter, grainy character. Pretty decent.
