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

Poured a cloudy lemon-yellow color with a large somewhat fizzy head. Light citrus aroma. Flavor is lightly citrus and light spice. Nice to see this in Georgia. A fine example of the style and recommended.

Hazy, bright yellow with a small, white head. Spicy, slightly sweet aroma of citrus fruit, tart wheat, coriander, light green apples, mango and a touch of bubblegum. The body is light, but silky smooth. The flavor is tasty, but light and subtle. The spice and fruit play well together, without either taking too much control. The light hops at the finish keep it from being without depth. A decent example of the style, but it’s something that is probably better in the warmer months.

Belgian style with spicyness and wheat sweetness and cream rolled into one. Would have worked if less carbonated. Had at Blue Tusk in Syracuse.

This is a bottle of sunshine; Liquid lemon merangue pie. Perfectly hazy yellow with a fluffy head and great lacing - looks perfect! Lemony citrus, some herbal/clove aromas. Taste is lightly toasty malts, corriander, a lotta lemon zing, sweet fruits - pineapple, starfruit. Ends with a hit of orange peel and dry. Excellent.

would be fine on a hot day, not very complex, no fruitiness,. Slightly cloudy yellow with a lasting fizzy white head. Lemon-pepper dashes. I like the Allagash alternative much more.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 Original Rating November 2, 2004:Golden color with little head. Very weak wheat aroma. Mild lemon taste, but almost no wheat or corriander. A bit watery. Too plain and lacks the visual delight of witbiers. 6/2/6/3/10 <Re-rating July 5, 2008: Hazy yellow with a medium head. Coriander and lemon zest aroma. Lots and lots of coriander flavor. Almost getting up to the coriander-smoothie level. Moderate wheat.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Yellow-gold and mostly clear. Fresh, spring-like nose. Light, grainy malts. Somewhat vinous -- mostly white wine. Spicy, dry and slightly sour. Notes of citrus -- mostly lemon, but also sweet orange. Mild bitterness attempts to surface, but doesn’t, really. Not bad at all, but it doesn’t have a lot of charisma, either.

Pours pale, cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is light. Yeast,floral, spice. Flavor is sweet with a nice spice. Coriander and a little clove. Citrus acidity balance nicely. Finish is dry and crisp. A nice wit.
