Pours straw yellow clean, white longer lasting heavy white head. Notes of citrus, floral, and bubblegum in the aroma. Light sweetness followed by light bitterness on the finish, citrus, banana, frutiness of belgiam ales. The body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is lively.

Aroma of clove, banana, and Belgian yeast. Cloudy gold color, not much head. A taste of clove and banana with a watery feel and a banana finish.

monk191 (930) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Overall a quite nice witte. Pours a very cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells of lemon and wheat. Taste is very well balanced, with lots of wheat and lemon. Had on tap at Tiburon Taps Beer Festival.

geeklimit (184) - USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a hazy hay, strongly carbonated with a large, lumpy and fast-dissolving foam head. Strong and pleasant yeast aroma. Bright and fruity yeast taste on a very fizzy palate. Light yeast aftertaste with a lightly sticky mouthfeel.

Freaky_tiki (553) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle received in trade from the cold, crooked fingers of Helsdon -- thanks man! -- at the Toronto Ratebeer Throwdown of Summer ’14 pours watery lemon with a slight suggestion of foam on top. Helsdon kept assuring me that this brew wasn’t that good & I’m not so sure as it is a pretty level headed interpretation of the style. I get lemon, a spritz of orange, a watery version of the banana Popsicles I used to eat in the ’80’s & a strong bite of carbonation. Enjoyable.

Pours murky pale yellow with low white head. Aroma of honey, citrus, wheat, light cilantro and herbs. Taste is fresh, lighly sweet followed by a peppery and wheaty finish. Light, smooth body with average carbonation.

ttoadee (652) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Light yellow hue, meringue white head. Nose is yeast and slight bubblegum. Bittersweet. Middle is soft wheat and hint of citrus. Finish is dry and bubbly. Nice.

ARH (406) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. Traditional banana and spice notes hit the nose followed by a sweet candy and orange note. It pours a hazy yellow with a light effervescence. The white, creamy head reduces to a light ring with a dusty surface and a small bubbled, runny lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The medium-light bodied beer has a oily texture and a soft carbonation. The finish is primarily lemon and spice with a bit of banana. The aftertaste is bready and mostly clean

Poobah (273) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Lemon-gold with a thin head and a ripe banana, bubblegum, peppery nose. Highly-carbonated mouthfeel with a ripe banana, slightly spicy, lemony finish.

I got excited when I saw Ommegang made a Witbier, so this was a real disappointment. Watery, flavorless, and so much carbonation it burns the mouth. They make so many great beers at Ommegang, but this is not one of them.
