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

Great appearance and foamy head. Citrus is well-balanced. Witbier is not my favorite, but this beer was very refreshing.

This beer just looks great. the head lasts forever and it has a great hazy unfiltered look. the spice really comes through with this beer and it is definatly refreshing on a warm day.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
A creamy head lasts over the pale straw yellow...Dry yeast, coriander leaves and a dash of sulphur make up a pallid aroma...Wheaty citrus and smooth yeastiness are well-integrated, leading to a soft, quiet finish...

Quevillon (2601) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 06. Jaune limonade, zéro collet. Arome de blé malté. Goût trop faible pour son style.

This is a "light" beer, in that, it feels quite thin to my palate. Initially, it tastes mildly acidic and sweet, but the trace of sweetness is quickly overtaken by an increasingly astringent and dry finish. The aroma is lightly yeasty, and the continuous streams of champagne bubbles fit well with its opaque yellow/gold color. I’d choose it again, though its not in my top 10.

A very good belgian white. All of the characteristics of a fine Witbier. A refreshing summer beer.

Great color and body - looks just like a wit should, very pale and cloudy. Big white head, citrusy, spicy, and an excellent wit overall.

pintocb (646) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Pours a nice murky gold. Very opaque considering the light color. The head is white and doesn’t last very long. Smells of wheat and a hint of citrus. Light flavor. Overall a nice Witte. If I could change anything it could be a bit more effervescent.

Gorbalev (2988) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2006
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, Harry’s bottle. Very pale white colour, small bubbly white head. Decent lemon, yeast aroma. Decent wit taste, lots of lemon, sharp spice and light hops - nice and refreshing. Decent all around, just nothing that struck me as outstanding. Nice beer.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry and tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy very pale yellow with a large semi-lasting white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, apples and more fruit. Flavour of yeast, citrus, spices and hops. Medium bodied. Pretty good Witbier.
