JStax (3237) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is very pale gold with a huge white head of loose bubbles. Aroma is light and fruity.taste is light and somewhat grainy with a nice papery finish. Meh.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2011
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.

Sammer (1053) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Taste is yeast, perfume, soap, candy and grass. Easy enough to drink, but not very interesting.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2011
Light yellow coloured beer with a head that should hold a bit longer... Doesn’t 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.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2011
Brewed at... Ommegang? Available in Belgium in classic 33cl? Don’t 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, childrens’ softdrink-like, perfumed to the gills. Spritzy, soapy perfume keeps lingering on. Beer for the 13-yr. old fans of Gust’n Bibber.

Cavie (3842) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle at Trinity Hall. Label doesn’t mention Ommegang at all, but it’s 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 I’m not convinced of that. Flavor is citrus sweet with a carbonation burn over the palate. Very tingly. Slightly watery finish however.

djd07 (3879) - 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 (2317) - 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.

BoBoChamp (5759) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2011
33cl, no mention of ABV, exclusive brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, spicy and slightly sour, yet refreshing, balanced, cloudy, good head, nice Belgian White

Decent Witbier, middle of the road for the style, nice spice, nice citrus. It was cheap too.
