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

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 If someone held a gun to my head and demanded I drink this stuff, Iíd pull off some wild karate moves, get the gun, point it at the guy and say "No worries. This is my favorite witbier" and then the credits would roll. This is a good summer time beer. Some people like lemons in it, but Iíll pass. Pungent of banana and nearly sweet on the tongue. A great example of the style.

Hazy yellow hue, with an off white head, the nose is yeasty, wheat and fruity notes of pineapple, citrus fruits and spicy coriander in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a zesty spicy coriander accent, citrus fruits flavors, oranges, grapefruits, with a wheaten character, leading towards a juicy citrusy and lingering acidic and faintly bittering hops finish.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Poured hazy golden with a large white head, aromas of wheat,citrus and spices, the taste was smooth and clen with citrus, wheat and spices present in the flavor, a good beer.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2006
Stored in my beer fridge for 4 months waiting for it to be hot enough to have. Opens this very pleasant wheat yesterday. Poured golden and very clear for a wheat. I had the first glass without a lemon wedge. You could taste the orange peel. Finished spicy and very smooth. Second glass with the lemon wedge. Beer reacted to the lemon by fizzing more then usual. Finishes with a citrus earthy taste. A good brew by Ommegang

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Pale yellow with a thick yeast haze and a huge pillowy head. Highly carbonated. Spicy corianderish nose, lemon, some light pleasant phenols with a bit of dustiness and light appley fruitiness. The yeast profile really reminds of Duvel... very light and fragrant. Light-bodied brew with the perfect balance of lemon zest citrus, tart citrusy middle and dry spicy finish. Wheaty flavour with some lingering spice and orangey flavour. Awesome brew.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
From 750ml. caged cork brown bottle with a short blurb about the witbier on the right side of the front label and pouring instructions on the back label, served at cellar temperature. Off to a promising start, poured a cloudy orange hued pale straw yellow with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation. For a witbier, rather bland nose, a dry yeastiness, faint aromas of sweet coriander, spices and tart orange, more rind-like than peel. A slick, crisp medium bodied mouth feel, average drinkability consistent with the style. Bland tasting overall, especially for a Ommegang product, a dry earthy yeastiness, the mellowest of coriander and spice flavors, mildly tart orange and a pale wheat maltiness and a watery, orangey finish with a little crispiness. This was a boring Witbier, disappointing considering the brewery. Normally I would recommend anything by Ommegang, but Iím afraid I canít recommend this witbier to anyone.

This beer is very sour. Think of Hoegaarden and increase the the sourness by 20. I had the champagne bottle and the sourness hits your nose the second it is opened

One of the better witbiers I have had. Very lemony with a rich yet light wheatyness.

This is a fantastic beer, one of the upper tier beers from one of the upper tier breweries. Not much head, a great aroma...just flat out one of my favorite beers to drink.

12 oz bottle. Creamy yellow with a snow-white cap and raucous bubbles. Mild grassy nose. Light and lemony with some tang and a flowery finish. Less carb and thinner body than it would seem.
