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

Bottle. Clove, lemon, peach aroma. Light tan yellow color with small quickly disappating head. Tart strong clove flavor (strongest Iíve ever tasted in a wheat beer - really comes out in the aftertaste). Light hints of lemon. Iím not a huge fan of the clove flavor but if you like clove flavor, this would be a good choice.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2005 1 bottle backyard by the campfire. Had a glass with and one without a lemon wedge. OK without, but I always enjoy my wheat beers with the lemon. It seems to kickup a bigger head and the bubbles coming from the Lemon make it a livelyer drink. Iíll have it again for sure.

Overall a decent wit. Pours very light (think Bud Light) with a small amount of head. Aroma is of yeast, spices, and some fruitness. Iíd like a little bit more of a punch at the end of the swallow. Slightly tart, Iíd stick with a Sweetwater Summer Hummer for a similar beer that is better.

At brewery. Definately my least favorite Ommegang. More on the dirty, barnyard side than Iím used to for wits. Not a great aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 REVIEW #200! On tap at the brewery in Cooperstown, NY. Wasnít expecting much from this, but it had alot of flavor. Iíll have to get myself a bottle of this stuff. Very high carbonation with a nice sour finish.

Bottle, pale ambery hazy pour. Big citrusy and spiced aroma. Lots of lemon and oranges and peppery spices in the flavors. Somewhat acidic tartness to it. Not bad, but my least favorite of the Ommegang beers.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pours a very pale color. Smells of citrus and a bit of spice. Very light in regards to Belgian whiteís. Has hints of orange with a clove spice background. Very thin and watery which some people might like as itís a bit more refreshing. However I like a little more punch in my beers.

Cork popped out with force, seemed to be a lot of sediment in this one, interesting. Pours a nice pale orange with a huge frothy head that expands rapidly before quickly dissappearing. Aroma of wheat, not much else discernable. Very creamy, flavor is nice, not too sweet, lets the flavor of the wheat shine through. NIcely done!

They arenít kidding when they call this a witte. This beer was so damn pale it almost was actually white. Wheaty, yeasty nose, a little spiciness. Flavor was very upfront spicy clovey yeasty, pleasant palate. A quenching beer.
