COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang Witte, a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive, Ommegang Witte is this summer's version of spicy intrigue and refreshing flavor.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUL 12, 2004
750 ml. big ’ole brown Belgian style bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen. Loud pop when opened. Poured out a hazy, lemon yellow color. It has a huge, frothy white head at first, but it quickly faded back to a thin layer of foam laying on top of the beer. It did leave a nice lacing, however. Aromas are of citrus fruit, mostly lemons. Nice lactic wheat tang to it as well. Hops are very subdued, almost non-existant. Somewhat bready, but not overpowering. Tastes are of lemons, wheat tang, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel is fairly decent for the style. Slightly bitter finish to it, but not overly so. A really decent wheat beer from Ommegang

This was a pretty good beer but just didn’t capture my attention as so many beers do. This was very similar to drinking Blue Moon, and for the difference in price, I think I would go with the cheaper Blue Moon.

skaughty (643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2004
The carbonation produces a nice froth. The spices are light, but help carry this orange-laden beer. Lingering sweetness make this more palatable than Hoegaarden and Unibroue’s Blanche, but overall it is less complex (not as much lemon, or acidic harshness). For "yum factor" witte is a hit. For beer snobs, it is a simpleton.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Bright, hazy yellow appearance with a large head. Initial aroma of yeast gave way to a citrus fruit and spice nose. Well carbonated, with a light bodied mouthfeel. Crisp, dry, spicy taste with a clean, smooth finish.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Good citrus, wheaty aroma. Body is very smooth and mellow. Citrus notes are not as overpowering as a lot of Wits. Quite enjoyable.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Solid wit. Aroma is of hay, a bit of horseblanket, and a bit of citrus and wheat. Flavor is of hay, clean barnyard, citrus, and a slightly sharp spice near the finish. Nice wit that focuses more on the belgian funky yeast signiture then the lemon and spice.

rudolf (2310) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Cloudy yellow with a billowing head that fades pretty quickly. Flavor is bananna, wheat, yeast, some lemon and a spicy finish (Anis?) Sweet yeasty aroma w. citrus and a little grassy hops.

Cloudy, pale yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma of coriander and citrus. Tastes of coriander and lemon with a touch of sweetness. Very thirst quenching.

Tasted in NYC. Tasted at Brewtopia 04. Aroma is of lemon and is citrus. Taste seems like a standard witte - slight corriander and spice hints.
