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

dull pale opaque yellow color aroma was citrusy and candy like sweet. I found this version of the style slightly too light for my liking. It was citrus and had wheat like notes but very light and soft. It seemed a little too over-carbonated too me.

Solid, although could have been a little bolder. hazy yellow w/ thin head. Mild wheat beer characteristics - some citrus and coriander to be found - and then a smooth but somewhat subtle finish. Nice - thanks to Jeremy who provided this.

Poured a cloudy yellow with , a nice white foamy head. Yeasty aroma of coriander and white pepper. flavor is of orange peel, lemon, coriander with some spiciness. Very easy drinking and enjoyable witbier, and another quality offering from the folks at Ommegang

Very pale yellow and slightly cloudy body. White frothy head. Very nice clovey "wit" aroma. Tastes like wheaty cloves with a lemony hop bitterness. Pretty good.

bottle. Drank a 750 ml of this, and I was very impressed. Very nice . Pretty much on par with hoegaarden, etc. Ommegang continues to prove itself to me

piscator34 (2093) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Very pale yellow and hazy with good carbonation. Great spice aromas (pepper and coriander) with touches of yeast. Tart lemon and orange flavors blend well with the continued spice influence. Dryer (as in not sweet) than one would expect. Lacks a bit of finesse, but this is still one hell of a wit. Thanks radiomgb!

Murky straw colored beer with a smallish white head. The aroma is the most interesting thing about this beer. Citrus dominates the nose with compliments of yeast and spice. Light bodied and easy going down. Initially hit with a mild sweetness and carbonation. Yeast takes over the flavors and is then replaced in the finish by a mild hop bitterness. There are some interesting characteristics to this beer.

BBB63 (6396) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2004
750ml bottle: Pours to a hazed straw hue with a fizzy but long lasting white head and above average lace. The aroma has notes of wheat, lemon, orange zest, corriander, banana yeast esters. The taste starts with a crisp dose of citric and wheaty undertones. This is backed by a smooth yeast presence and a kick of white pepper like spice on the finish. The feel is crisp and lively, refreshing as expected within the style. Overall an well made witbier and very quaffable. Get ya some.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Notes taken from mid-August tasted, so the climate was perfect for this brew... Hazy, pale straw-yellow color, getting close to peach, with a big, though brief, white head.. Aroma, all citrus and spice, even from armís length away...as for a deeper inspection: the perfect fit for a wit,delicate spices, light but lively fruit... Now to sip, ..beautiful interaction with the tastebuds, a magical, lilting ballet on the palate...thrilling texture... A luxuriant ale, a brew to slowly savor and enjoy with reflection on a summerís day, a perfect companion for the picnic basket...light bodied, but brimming over with flavor. I love a good witbier, and this rankis among the best Iíve ever had.

09.03.04 750ml bottle. Pours a pale straw color with massive white head, looks like a wit. NIce aromas of corriander, banana, lemon. Tart and light, the body is crisp, the palate lively. Citrus and spice are pleasant and refreshing and not overdone. The yeastiness give a nice Belgian stamp to the beer. Not really the complexity of the best wits Iíve had, but at least as quaffable and plenty likeable as a wit should be. In all, fresh wheat, citrus, spice, yummy.
