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

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

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 (2974) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6136) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, my bottle. Poured cloudy pale yellow with an average white head - pretty much what a witbier should look like. Mildly spicy and fruity-sweet, gets a little sharply peppery on warming - pretty nice. Similar taste, a little lemon to balance the sweetness, still finishes somewhat sweet but definitely spicy - nice take! Mouthfeel is average body for a wit, lightly acidic, quick finishing ... I like it.

Pour is a clear yellow with a fluffly white head. Aroma is a very nice combo of citrus and wheat. Flavor is not as good as the aroma but i get lots of lemon bitterness with a touch of vanilla. Not the best of the style but there are pleasing aspects to this brew.

Bartzilla (556) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 If someone held a gun to my head and demanded I drink this stuff, I’d 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 I’ll pass. Pungent of banana and nearly sweet on the tongue. A great example of the style.

rederic (3156) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2006
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.
