TheBeerGod (5988) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is strong citrus, spice, dusty yeast, banana, wheat and light bubblegum. Taste is big yeast notes, soft spice, citrus fruit, light banana, wheat, flowers and bubblegum. Body is light with a soft mouthfeel. Carbonation is spritzy and strong. Ends with more wheat and yeast up front with flowers, candied fruit, citrus notes and light spice rounding it out.

Spice and yeast aroma. Nice bottle. Coriander, yeast, sweet barley, then some slighty acidity in the finishing bite. Easy-drinking and at no point did the spices become too much. Well done witbier.

Taste is yeast, perfume, soap, candy and grass. Easy enough to drink, but not very interesting.

Abio (1845) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2011
Light yellow coloured beer with a head that should hold a bit longer... Doesnít look to good. Lots of yeast and wheat, citrus-fruits. Light spiced, but to much from the same... Nothing interesting. Good refreshing, but not my kind of beer. A bit watery, more soda. Seems to be brewed by Scheldebrouwerij ("Sterkens Brewery") and exported to the USA normally. totally diffirent label, but will be the same beer.

Brewed at... Ommegang? Available in Belgium in classic 33cl? Donít think so... Scheldebrouwerij, probably;. Huge, very dense & fine white head over pale, lemonjuice-like, well-carbonated beer. Overwhelming, near-nauseating coriander smell, like an alternative bar of toilet soap. Likewise flavour, childrensí softdrink-like, perfumed to the gills. Spritzy, soapy perfume keeps lingering on. Beer for the 13-yr. old fans of Gustín Bibber.

Cavie (4302) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle at Trinity Hall. Label doesnít mention Ommegang at all, but itís listed under the same name. Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is big banana and clove spice. Belgian yeast is apparent. Also has a slight metallic smell. Not sure where that is coming from. I almost want to write lake water but Iím not convinced of that. Flavor is citrus sweet with a carbonation burn over the palate. Very tingly. Slightly watery finish however.

djd07 (9730) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large creamy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is citrus and fruity tart. Thin mouthfeel with a flavor similar to the aroma tart and light finish. Easy to drink a decent Belgian wit.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2011
bottle. Label says brewed in Belgium by Sterkens Brewery Meer, Belgium, imported by Noble Union Trading? Not sure why this is listed as Ommegang? Coriander and citrus on the nose with bread-like wheat. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Bready malts with coriander and hints of citrus, finishes wheaty with traces of spice. I think a little fresher this beer would be awesome.
