COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Witte is our version of the classic Belgian wit or "white" ale. Witte, which is actually Flemish for white, is brewed with malted and unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander - offering a refreshing style that showcases the Belgian talent for brewing full-flavored ales that are also light and balanced. It is pale straw in color, slightly hazy from the yeast, and topped with a huge white, fluffy head.

color is a very cloudy pale yellow, head is THICK and white and creamy, aroma is very acute with the spiciness (nutmeg) and moderate lemon qualities. Flavor is virtually the same, some lemon, very sharp spiciness, and a little bit of wheatiness. there are slight notes of black pepper as well. not a bad wit...i was expecting it to be a little better though.

Pale yellow with a nice white head. Lemon aroma. Lemony with just a little spice. Good summer beer.

Wow, two nights in a row, two good white beers. Gotta love that. This is a nice beer. Then again, I have yet to have a bad Ommegang brew.

A solid. very enjoyable Belgian White. Cloudy yellow appearance with a nice thick head on it. Lemony aroma and taste with a nice finish of ginger. Just a touch of grapefruit in there too. Excellent beverage.

This beer poured a light cloudy yellow color...i mean very light with a thick white foamy head with a mad amount of lacing on my glass. The aroma is full of banana, peppers, ginger, and lemon. The flavor yields a ton of refreshing bananas, ginger and pepper. I did find a tiny bit of orange peel, but only after someone else pointed it out. This seem highly one dimensional and leaned toward a ton of grapefruity banana. Very dry finish, good mouthfeel. Interesting but not world class.

This could quite possibly make a great summer session beer. There is not much to it, but so esy to drink it is gone before you even realize it. Soft and silky mouthfeel, with a white wine like aroma with a perfectly balanced acidic orange peel flavor. Very enjoyable.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2004
12oz Bottle No Date Pours a very light gold color that is slightly hazy and sports a white as snow fluffy head that diminishes slightly but hangs. Aroma is very lemony with notes of yeast and orange. Body is crisply carbonated and light. Flavor is sweet and citrusy with a bit of coriander, orange and yeast. Overall not the greatest but not a bad one if you like Witbier.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Cloudy light golden with an initially thick egg white head that dissipated rapidly. Aroma is orange, yeast, and spice/coriander. Very nice. Flavor is sweet and spicy and dry. Quite a nice wit. Excellent summer beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow straw color, medium white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, yeast. All round this beer could use a bit more spices, and the body was a bit sweet at times without the spice to balance. Medium body, refreshing, with some lemon tang. In the middle for the style.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Yellow hazy color, filmy white head & some islandic lacing. The aroma is very yeasty with some citric notes & light hops; a touch of clove & wheat, some sulpher. The flavor is tangy with some wheat. The yeast is sharp and tangy; harsh. Light esters and moderate phenols. Decent belgian style offering from Ommegang but noticably at the bottom of the bunch from what Ive had.
