3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light lemony aroma over a pure golden color. The flavor was a little lacking from what I was expecting, but it was very refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First beer Iíve sampled from Ommegang since the takeover by Duval. This Wit is true to style, light golden color, citrus undertones and light bodied. Not a beer I would expect from Ommegang, personally Iíll stick with their heavier Belgian beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Monkís. I really wanted to like this beer. But this pint came after a Dupont Saison, and despite its good looks, I found it lacking. Should have gone with Hoegarden?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A perfect-loooking witbier with a cloudy golden body and a nice foamy head. Lemony aroma, very yeasty. The finish is quite dry and full of ash. Refreshing, yes, but it is somewhat thin in the body. Good wheatiness to it, but it lacks meatiness.

Me in the store: "Hmm, a witbier; how painfully unoriginal.....I think I’ll buy a bottle." Me upon pouring: "Yup, that looks like a witbier alright." Me upon smelling: "Smells...average." Me upon tasting: "Yup...that’s a witbier. How absolutely uninspired.....I think I’ll buy another bottle."

750 ml bottle: Perfumey, urine, yeast, lemon peel, spice, floral, orange nose. Big fluffy white head. Hazy straw coloured body. Steady carbonation, orange-lemon and wheat flavor, slight spice, yeast, light-footed, light, crisp, dry finish. Rather refreshing for a hot summer day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light cloudy straw color with a full stiff egg white head. Light citrus and spice nose. Hints of pure yeast in the aroma. Very light oil feel with enough carbonation to keep things from sticking. Light orange citrus and malt flavors. Not a lot of depth to this one. Certainly well made, as there are no flaws that would quickly show there presence in a brew this light. Lots of burps to this one. Light and refreshing as it should be. A malt linger does show up late.
