Yellow gold color. Aroma is fruity and grassy. A medium to light bodied wit. Malts are fruity and sweet. Orange, bananas and spice. Light and refreshing. Nice bright yeasts. Lemons, orange peels and a touch floral. A nice light and refreshing wit. Nice lemony finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2004
This wit did not excite me too much but it was quite refreshing. A murky yellow appearance with a moderate head. The aroma is wheat and citrus. The flavor is lemons, bread, and white grapes. It was a good easy sippin beer but not very complex.

Almost clear hue, very clean taste. Almost dry. Very carbonated. Not a bad drink, but not sure if I’d come back to this one compared to their other beers

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2004
750 mL Corked and Caged, fairly young: slightly cloudy, canary yellow…fine-bubbled starched head – forms as a ring around the edge of the glass…sweet floral aroma with bits of citrus infused wheat. Strongly peppered palate with coriander, orange bits and apples. Fizzy carbonation that runs around in the month and grew on me. Dry wheaty finish. Not my favourite style, but this one was great…

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 22, 2004
This wit pours with a very pale, cloudy yellow body topped by a medium thick white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma and flavor is slightly sour, bitter and yeasty with a very slight sweetness, a touch of lemon grass and little else. Light bodied, crisp, smooth and a touch dry.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2004
I had this on tap in up state New York and I had expected it to be great. Maybe it just was not fresh, but I found the flavors more muted than I expected and far less wheaty/bready/yeasty/citrus than a real Belgian wheat. Great yellow appearance with huge white head. Not bad, but not as interesting as the others from Ommegang.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow, big white head. Pretty standard Witbier appearance. ALso has the standard lemon/citrus aroma. The flavor was different than I was expecting from the aroma, there is that citrus sourness, but it’s much more yeasty than I expected.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUL 12, 2004
750 ml. big ’ole brown Belgian style bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date seen. Loud pop when opened. Poured out a hazy, lemon yellow color. It has a huge, frothy white head at first, but it quickly faded back to a thin layer of foam laying on top of the beer. It did leave a nice lacing, however. Aromas are of citrus fruit, mostly lemons. Nice lactic wheat tang to it as well. Hops are very subdued, almost non-existant. Somewhat bready, but not overpowering. Tastes are of lemons, wheat tang, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel is fairly decent for the style. Slightly bitter finish to it, but not overly so. A really decent wheat beer from Ommegang
