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.

Fizzy, citrusy white ale from Ommegang (whom I normally love!). This one is OK, but the flavors all seemed to be hiding somewhere (and I never found them). Just not what I expected from one of the best breweries in the US. Worth a try, though.

C&C 750. Pours a murky yellow, big white foamy head. Nose is yeasty, spicy (clove and coriander) with a zing of lemony cirtus. Excellent white lace. Bouncy mouthfeel, very lively, yet soft. Flavor is spicy as noted in the nose, some orange and lemon zest flavors on a solid wheaty base. Really enjoyable!

Light yellow murky body with a couple fingers of white head. Smells yeasty and spicy with some malt. Tastes very citrusy with some yeast and malt present. Light to medium body. Very tasty. Not as spicy as some witbiers, but thats not necessarily a bad thing. One of the better Wits Ive had definitely. Ommegan has never dissappointed me before, and now is no exception.

The pour is underwhelming: hazy yellow with a white head that fades quickly and leaves no markings of its presence only minutes into the experience. Aroma is similarly so: a muddled mash of malt and citrus that doesnt give much to be excited over. Taste is redeeming: classic orange and coriander, with some banana. Carbonation is substantial and gives the brew a nice quaff-ability. This is nothing sensational, but has a clean taste and is pleasant if not much else.

AskForJenny (1068) - Ontario, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Pours cloudy like a white should. No real nose and little head. Flavors are better in the 750ml than the 12oz bottle. A good white, but I want Hoegaarden back, InBev!

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Pours a very hazy yellow color, very cloudy... Little to no head. I smell a bit of orange and other citrus notes in this one. Tastes much like the smell suggests it would. A nice hint of orange and a small amount of spice round out this beer.

On tap-Refreshing citrus aspect. Lemon predominates with a suggestion of coriander. Simple, yet refreshing.

An alright summer beer. It is very light and blan. I would rather be drinking orange juice.... or maybe even mix it with orange juice or a fruit lambic. Some try it and let me know....

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Pale yellow with a puffy white head. Very cloudy. Aroma is a nice amount of wheat mixed with some citrus and orange zest. Flavor is a little lighter than I would have expected. A bit spicy at the front, dry and grainy in the middle, and slightly spicy and zesty at the finish. Very clean.
