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

First, despite this being a summer seasonal as per RateBeer, I never saw the stuff until November--and this is at a store that always has Ommegang. Anyway, it pours yellow with just a bit of cloudiness--not enough in my opinion, a lot of domestic wits seem to have this problem. Faintly spicy with a bit of a tart fruit presence. Light bodied and pretty refreshing if a little light on flavor. It’s OK but I don’t see myself going out of my way to get any.

Coludy pale yellow with steadily building white head. Light wheat, yeast, and spice in the aroma. The flavor is malted with light wheaty malts, yeast, a slightly fruity presence and some spices; seems like nutmeg and clove. A decent crisp beer with a light feel and finish.

Lubiere (12363) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle at the Syracuse Holiday Brewfest Dec.04 2004. Hazy yellowish ale. Delightful banana aroma with spices and lemon. Rather light in body with good cloves and creamy mouthfeel. Yum.

PorterPounder (6973) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Picked up at Habersham Beverage Warehouse in Savannah, Ga. Pours a murky colored golden, yet thin with a slightly frothy, yet beady white head, that dissipates somewhat quickly. Aroma has some spicy coriander notes with a hint of orange. Mouthfeel is slightly spritzy, but not as tart as some Wits. Flavor has some lemony tartness with a bit of underlying wheat and some back end doughiness. All around a decent refesher, not the best of this style nor the best from this brewer. Rather understated.

Pale yellow out of the bottle with a fizzy white head and a crisp, sharp nose of spice and yeast. All the traditional wit flavors with citrus, coriander and doughy yeast. Easy drinking example of the style.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - NOV 25, 2004
Cloudy yellow with a frothy white head. White bread, lemon, merange, and a touch of clove in the nose. Same in the mouth but a bit more yeasty. Spritzy mouth feel and a nice cool finish. Great summer beer.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 21, 2004
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.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2004
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.
