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.

At brewery. Definately my least favorite Ommegang. More on the dirty, barnyard side than I’m used to for wits. Not a great aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 REVIEW #200! On tap at the brewery in Cooperstown, NY. Wasn’t expecting much from this, but it had alot of flavor. I’ll have to get myself a bottle of this stuff. Very high carbonation with a nice sour finish.

Bottle, pale ambery hazy pour. Big citrusy and spiced aroma. Lots of lemon and oranges and peppery spices in the flavors. Somewhat acidic tartness to it. Not bad, but my least favorite of the Ommegang beers.

Pours a very pale color. Smells of citrus and a bit of spice. Very light in regards to Belgian white’s. Has hints of orange with a clove spice background. Very thin and watery which some people might like as it’s a bit more refreshing. However I like a little more punch in my beers.

Cork popped out with force, seemed to be a lot of sediment in this one, interesting. Pours a nice pale orange with a huge frothy head that expands rapidly before quickly dissappearing. Aroma of wheat, not much else discernable. Very creamy, flavor is nice, not too sweet, lets the flavor of the wheat shine through. NIcely done!

They aren’t kidding when they call this a witte. This beer was so damn pale it almost was actually white. Wheaty, yeasty nose, a little spiciness. Flavor was very upfront spicy clovey yeasty, pleasant palate. A quenching beer.

giarcsr (104) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Beer pours a light yellow with a hint of head and a fruitish, yet wheaty aroma. Flavor is wit like and nice, with hints of fruit, and spicing and some tartiness at the end. Not a bad beer.

3.6
JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Loads of citrus in this beer. The aroma is dominated by citrus with wheat. Clloudy, dark yellow but nearly no head. The flavor has grapefruit, wheat, coriander, and spices. Actually spicy is a good description for this beer. Better than most of this style.

3.8
Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2005
750 ml bottle. Cloudy light gold with a huge meringue head that fades fairly quickly and leaves only touches of lacing. Nose: lemon, coriander, pear, pepper and banana. Flavor is pear and lemon. Very smooth almost oily mouthfeel.
