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.

In a tiny bottle at Walkers, NYC, very nice light beer. Citrus and bread, grass, musty like champagne corks.

GBof A PA-on tap-pours a white head and cloudy straw color. Aroma is wheat, musty, alcohol. Taste is clove, wheat, musty, alcohol. OK carbonation.

cheap (6089) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Label says "bright and soft as summer clouds over a Flander’s field!" One of the few beers I’ve seen with pouring directions on it. Nice informative label. I think I’m getting the unfiltered wheat, bottle conditioned, pour method down finally. Pours slightly cloudy in my steeler stein with a very pale light yellow hue. A layer of tan muck remains in the bottle. Virtually no bouqet but has the aroma of fresh spring water. Nice barely tart initial flavor. Palate is average carbonation. Finish is light, barely orangy (?) and pleasant with no lingering aftertase. Refreshing and enjoyable.

alobar (3918) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Pours a hazy yellow with a thick, white soapy head. Aroma of yeast, lemon, and spices. Taste is smooth with lemon and spcies upfront and some bitter on the back end. Overall, a solid witte.

GuilTTy (2264) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2006
12oz Bottle. Hazy pale goldenrod pour under a very quickly dissipating rocky white head. Aroma of cloves, vanilla and citrus fruit with a touch of fresh cut grass. Well balanced flavors of citrus, herbs (clove and corriander) and hops. Very active carbonation - a little too active for my tastes - and a somewhat thinner mouthfeel than other versions of the style. Finishes mildly sweet, clean and surprisingly dry. Not a bad representation of the style but not a Hoegaarden (or Victory Whirlwind for that matter).

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 750mL, courtesy of NachlamSie, no date. Pours a very pale yellow golden with a three finger white head. Aroma of light oranges and lemons, some wheat, and light spicy hops. All fairly subtle. Flavor much the same with a light tinge of vanilla, some soft grainy wheat also presents itself. I don’t think I noticed any bitterness at all, but not necessarily a much sweetness, either. There was also a bit of butteryness. Highly carbonated, light body. For a wit, this is pretty damn good--I don’t care if everyone else does hate the style.

Blind rating, American Beer Tastings at Sk8viking´s. Pours a hazy yellow with a small foamy white head. Lightly sweet and wheaty. Slightly sour. Hints of bubble-gum. Mellow carbonation . Dry finish. Boring.

Tmoney99 (14983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2006
Golden cloudy colour with a nice white head. Nice aroma of citrus. Light flavour of yeast and little fresh citrus. Ends up watery and light body.

3.2
Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Above average white. Hazy white pour. Yeast and lemon on the nose. More fruit on the tongue. Slight bitterness adds the thirst quenching. Probably better in the summer than at the end of a night of sampling pumpkin ales:)
