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

kind of watery. but i tasted this right after a rochetfort 10, which might bias the result.

The beer divorces the 12-ounce brown bottle and sets in the glass a beclouded lemon yellow with a modest creamy white head and the residual lace a velum like sheet upon the glass. Nose is sweet with malt, hints of lemon-lime, coriander and spices, the start is lightly sweet and the top is light in feel upon the palate. Finish is stinging in its acidity with the hops delectable in their unassuming spiciness, quite dry aftertaste a fine example of the style, quite a thirst quencher

Decent witbier, but I kind of expected it to be a bit thicker than it came. Carbonation didn’t seem quite right, but maybe the weizen glass isn’t perfect for it. This would be incredibly great on a hot day...

Foggy whitened yellow. Persistent, but thin, rocky wisp of head. Yeasty nose with fresh scents of passionfruit and floral hops. Hints of lemon cake, clove gum, and coriander. Prickly carbonation. Extremely filmy body and much rounder than it is dry. Initially soft and florally hoppy with hints of candle wax atop a snappy yeast backbone. Lemon, unripe melon, and lactic acidity thwart the faint doughy unmalted wheat sweetness, exponentially deepening its quenching nature. Rather than accentuating the subtle spiciness and delicate hop flavors, the timidly-dry finish causes them to take the backseat, rather than bringing them to the fore. Solid mix of bubblegum and wheat linger. Yeast pour transforms the brew, as it reveals a delicate honey sweetness and contributes heft to the body along with some firm nuttiness. Pretty nice rendition, particularly the bottom-half of the bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 The lack of a head is a big downgrade for me in appearance and overall. Has a spicey/citrus taste, is light and refreshing. I think the big bottle is not good for this type of beer.

Can Ommegang do no wrong? Had the Witte for the first time on tap at the Blind Tiger in Manhattan. Pours a bright yellow-orange color, very cloudy and particulate, with a thick, frothy head. Perfumey, citrusy aroma. The flavor is bright and sunny with lemon and orange notes; fairly yeasty. I’m not normally big on wheat beers, but this is excellent.

Hazy yellow orange color with a small white head the deminished and clung to the side. aroma of cloves and yeast and orange and spice. taste is crisp and smooth , nice a better example of a wit.

Pours a suprisingly clear golden yellow even with the yeast dumped in. Nice clinging white head. Smells of corriander seed. Tastes lightly spiced, some wheat malt character - pretty light in taste and body. Rated it high because it is tastes like a great summer beer that I happened to find in the winter.
