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

A solid. very enjoyable Belgian White. Cloudy yellow appearance with a nice thick head on it. Lemony aroma and taste with a nice finish of ginger. Just a touch of grapefruit in there too. Excellent beverage.

This beer poured a light cloudy yellow color...i mean very light with a thick white foamy head with a mad amount of lacing on my glass. The aroma is full of banana, peppers, ginger, and lemon. The flavor yields a ton of refreshing banana’s, ginger and pepper. I did find a tiny bit of orange peel, but only after someone else pointed it out. This seem highly one dimensional and leaned toward a ton of grapefruity banana. Very dry finish, good mouthfeel. Interesting but not world class.

This could quite possibly make a great summer session beer. There is not much to it, but so esy to drink it is gone before you even realize it. Soft and silky mouthfeel, with a white wine like aroma with a perfectly balanced acidic orange peel flavor. Very enjoyable.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2004
12oz Bottle No Date Pours a very light gold color that is slightly hazy and sports a white as snow fluffy head that diminishes slightly but hangs. Aroma is very lemony with notes of yeast and orange. Body is crisply carbonated and light. Flavor is sweet and citrusy with a bit of coriander, orange and yeast. Overall not the greatest but not a bad one if you like Witbier.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Cloudy light golden with an initially thick egg white head that dissipated rapidly. Aroma is orange, yeast, and spice/coriander. Very nice. Flavor is sweet and spicy and dry. Quite a nice wit. Excellent summer beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow straw color, medium white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, yeast. All round this beer could use a bit more spices, and the body was a bit sweet at times without the spice to balance. Medium body, refreshing, with some lemon tang. In the middle for the style.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Yellow hazy color, filmy white head & some islandic lacing. The aroma is very yeasty with some citric notes & light hops; a touch of clove & wheat, some sulpher. The flavor is tangy with some wheat. The yeast is sharp and tangy; harsh. Light esters and moderate phenols. Decent belgian style offering from Ommegang but noticably at the bottom of the bunch from what I’ve had.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2004
We’ve got the traditional cloudy gold/yellow with a thin film of white head and some spotty lacing. Heavy aromas of clove and citrus. Lemons and oranges stand out nicely. Great malt and wheat backing. It was a good nose. Musky flavors of wheat. Citrus is big. Clove is there as well. The lemons come out for more. The oranges are there as well. Bittering hops and some floral. Tangy palate and a thin body. Finishes in the spicy, hoppy, citrusy department. Good stuffs.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2004
By the playbook this is - beautifully spiced, with that luminescent bright golden color - pepper and coriander distinguishable, lemon peel, mmm mmm - luscious - a tad more body and this is up there with the best wits in the world.

Bah. Not up to snuff, particularly when compared head to head with Hoegaarden. Kind of flat, and not particularly complex. Typical Ommegang move. They’re overrated in my book.
