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

From the 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy white gold with a snow-white bubbly head. Looks like a fizzy urine sample. Smells of spicy wheat. Funky, fruity yeast. Lightly sour and pungent. Taste has a permeating barnyard funk. Sour wheat malt and spicy. Coriander and lemony. A bit thin but crisp and dry. Nice clean finish with a faint funky aftertaste. No the best but a really good witte.

Light golden and thin body with a light bubbly white head. Thin light lemon and citrus aroma and flavor. Light and crisp finish.

Ommegang Witte. 1 June 2005. Bottle. Decent head, teeny bubbles, bright white. Light straw in color and a little hazy, with a handful of very small bubbles rising throughout. Just smelling the citrus in this makes my mouth water; lemon peel and lemongrass. This is fine Ė a standard Belgian wit that stacks up well with the originals. Itís refreshing and crisp. But of all the things Iíve had from Ommegang (and Iím a fan), this brings up the rear. I think that says more about the stellar quality of their regular lineup than anything particularly deficient in the witte. One of the things I like so much about Ommegang is that they have picked a few things, done them extremely well, and stuck to them. I canít fault them for expanding their lineup in this direction, as the style is only natural. But I hope theyíre content to leave it at this, and keeping doing a few things well.

Sweet lemon aroma and flavor. Cluody gold color with white head and good lacing. A decent beer.

Bottle poured a cloudy orange with a light head and lacing. Aroma and flavor of citrus and fruit. Not bad.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Nice white beer. Not very citrusy (is that a word?) compared to some other whites, but still well balanced. $10 for a 6 pack = never again, although itís still pretty good. Would make a good drunk beer if not for the price tag.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2005
750 mL bottle, goblet. Medium gold, hazy hue with visible carbonizzles. Tall, white, creamy head. Heavy wheat aroma. Corriander, orange peel, bananas as well. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, velvety texture, fizzy carbonizzles. The bottom line is: refreshing and lively! This is a definite thirst quencher.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 This finally turned up in Freakville. Been looking for it for a while. Cloudy blonde beer with a creamy white head that lasted a while and laced nicely. Lemony yeasty aroma. It was a warm day and this hit the spot. Refreshing, true to style Belgian White, with lemony wheat flavors and a touch of spice. Very Nice.

presario (4730) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
The cork was wedged in tight but the beer had a thin quickly dissipating head. Lemon and musty yeast aroma brought to mind butter and chicken. Lemon and butter flavoured. Lemon is not sharp but strong enough to drwon out the yeast and the spice until the bottom third of the glass. Not a refreshing beer.

A blond wheat with a white head. The citrus smell is evident from the start. The first sip was a cool and refreshing mix of lemon and grapefruit. It feels light in the mouth. There is a slight spice in the finish. This is a refreshing Belgian White that is definitely made for a warm day. To me this leans heavily on the citrus flavor and slightly less on the hops and spice.
