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.

GuilTTy (733) - 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 (2703) - 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.

Tmoney99 (14365) - 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.

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 (1227) - 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:)

rybowen (105) - Los Angeles 90039, California, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Nice, but unremarkable. Pale color, lightly fruity nose. Some clove, pear flavors, but again unremarkable. Light body.

Cold 750ml bottle: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a nice frothy ivory head. Aroma and taste are of nice yeast, sweet grains, grass, citrus, and very mild hops bitterness. Well carbonated. Short sweet & musty ending.

1.9
bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2006
Bottled. Hazy yellowish in colour with a small head. Rather thin palate. Somewhat citric with notes of wheat and spices. Slightly watery.
