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

Light yellow murky body with a couple fingers of white head. Smells yeasty and spicy with some malt. Tastes very citrusy with some yeast and malt present. Light to medium body. Very tasty. Not as spicy as some witbiers, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. One of the better Wits I’ve had definitely. Ommegan has never dissappointed me before, and now is no exception.

The pour is underwhelming: hazy yellow with a white head that fades quickly and leaves no markings of its presence only minutes into the experience. Aroma is similarly so: a muddled mash of malt and citrus that doesn’t give much to be excited over. Taste is redeeming: classic orange and coriander, with some banana. Carbonation is substantial and gives the brew a nice quaff-ability. This is nothing sensational, but has a clean taste and is pleasant if not much else.

Pours cloudy like a white should. No real nose and little head. Flavors are better in the 750ml than the 12oz bottle. A good white, but I want Hoegaarden back, InBev!

Pours a very hazy yellow color, very cloudy... Little to no head. I smell a bit of orange and other citrus notes in this one. Tastes much like the smell suggests it would. A nice hint of orange and a small amount of spice round out this beer.

On tap-Refreshing citrus aspect. Lemon predominates with a suggestion of coriander. Simple, yet refreshing.

An alright summer beer. It is very light and blan. I would rather be drinking orange juice.... or maybe even mix it with orange juice or a fruit lambic. Some try it and let me know....

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Pale yellow with a puffy white head. Very cloudy. Aroma is a nice amount of wheat mixed with some citrus and orange zest. Flavor is a little lighter than I would have expected. A bit spicy at the front, dry and grainy in the middle, and slightly spicy and zesty at the finish. Very clean.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that was mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy typically carbonated yellow colored body. The weak aroma was floral and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow aftertaste. The weak flavor contained notes of bread dough malt mild hops fruity banana and pear. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
