COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang Witte, a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive, Ommegang Witte is this summer's version of spicy intrigue and refreshing flavor.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 6, 2005
Had one of these at the Winking Lizard. Fruity nose of berries and citrus, peaches licorice and dried cherries. Pours a hazy straw. The huge frothy white and tight head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The flavor is rich and complex though light and fresh. The brew waffles back and forth between sweet and tart. Alcoholic middle with a brisk tart finish. The brew sweetens as is warms. The light watery body is soft with a slightly cloying feel to the finish.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - NOV 26, 2005
Pours a light, hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells fruity, citrusy, spicy, tart. Tastes more or less the same with a touch of yeast. Plenty of fine bubbles with a medium body. Very satisfying. Definately something Iíd love to try again.

Pailhead (4607) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Bottle: Light fruit with an aroma that reminds me of a body shop after painting a car. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Fruity with light orange and almost an alcohol flavor. Lightly spicey in the finish with a hint of yeast.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2005
25 oz bottle. Pours a golden straw, slight bottle conditioned cloudiness, thin bright white head, lively carbonation. Aroma of crisp wheat, grassy meadows, floral hops, some yeast, coriander, and maybe some vanilla. Second glass from bottle was a little more fruity with heavier dose of yeast. More prominant banana notes. Flavor is of very spicy wheat, cloes, yeast, and an an alcoholic finish. Mouthfeel was very light bodied, with generous amounts of carbonation dancing across the tongue. Overall very refreshing brew. Very crisp up front, but for some reason I keep getting a slightly harsh alcoholic finish that was the only distraction for this.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Re-rate: Big step up from my initial rating eight years ago. Grassy/grainy aroma - very slightly doggy. Good label on a longneck. Very pale, the color of applesauce, thin white head. Biscuity, doughy, efferevescent, subtle fruiting. Nice and refreshing. ABC, Betton. Original Rating (2005) :Very pale gold, good bottle. Aroma is grassy/grainy. Palate is thin. Phenolic, floral, doughy. Not much spice. Disappointing brew from a great brewer.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Great looking beer, a hazy straw color with a huge fizzy white head. The aroma is light and yeast filled, soft wheat and sweet malt with oranges and some lemon tartness. Itís light in the mouth and the orange flavor somes to the forefront accompanied by some mild spicing, cloves and pepper.It finishes on a tart note, the lemon zest reasserting itself.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2005
On tap @ Buckeye Brewing: Light straw w/ a lasting white head, mildly hazy. Aromas of wheat malt, clove spicy yeast and a light orange peel and a bit of tartness. The flavor however seems to fall flat on the tongue and palate. All the flavors that are in the aroma at the start, but they just seem to lose everything as itís being swallowed and becomes watery at the finish and aftertaste. A bit tart and crisp flavored, but flat. Lighter body, higher carbonation, and a bit dry. Overall a bit disappointing to me from Ommegang. Not a bad wit, but others are much better.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
750ml. Soft, citric aroma, a bit more lemon than orange with gentle hints of clove and coriander. Largely opaque pale yellow color with a fine, lasting, frothy head and matching lace. Begins with some light tartness, again more lemon character is apparent, becoming slightly maltier before the juicy and quenching finish. Mouthfeel is mildly fizzy and acidic, with a light-medium body. Seemingly a good matchup with the continuing warm weather.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - SEP 25, 2005
12oz bottle. Pours a little clearer than most wits. Light aroma, lemon, wheat and some spice. Pretty bland. I guess thereís some orange peel, some citrus, but itís the wheat that comes through the most, but thereís not much of that either. Itís not sour, or funky, just plain. Pretty average for a wit.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Good stuff. High carbonation, thick head, lemony aroma. Little if any coriander comes through, and little orange character. But true Belgian examples take pride in their uniqueness. This one has an assertive lemony presence, with some undefinable spice. Quite good nonetheless. This is a good brewery.
