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

Definitively drinkable beer -- however, it tended to be a bit thin at the end, and I think it would benefit from more acorns.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Poured a very pale yellow. Aroma of oranges, spices, and yeast. Tart and acidic flavors with spices mixed through. Tasty.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
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.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Deep banana color with some haze and a pure white head. Aroma includes peppery phenols, lemon, honey, and grass. Comes across like a saison. Wheaty and dry impression that extends to the palate. Different, but enjoyable.

hopdog (9940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured a light and hazy gold color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of lemons, spices, and yeast. Tastes of stronger lemons, with oranges and spices. Thinner body (as is expected from this style).

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.

notwoohoo (109) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2005
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.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2005
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.
