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.

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 arent 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.

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.

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.

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.

Sure seemed like a classic German Weisse to me. Well a tad lighter and less aromatic. Very pale and not much head. Lemon aroma and wheaty palate. Watery finish. Im not sure how this can be rated so high. Might be a good one for its style, but the style doesnt seem to stand out.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Sampled in a flight of commercial witbiers. Intersting aroma, citrusy, but with added pear esters and a hint of wet hay funk. Cloudy yellow color, nice white head. Fruity and spicy flavor, orange and lemon, corriander, and some grainy/hay flavors. Medium-light body, crisp dry finish. A nice wit, tha little bit of Belgian funk makes it stand out from other examples of the style.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Hazy milky golden hue, quickly fading white head. Lemony nose with a good base of wheat, more orange peel than most, blanche de bruxelles like I find. Slightly grassy and leafy hop finish is interesting, but theres not much happening before, the wheat is shier than in the nose and the carbonation seems to hide some nuances. Like most Ommegangs, this doesnt quite reach the originals simplicity and ease of movement, but it remains by far above average. The yeast is a bit brash and not as characterful as the best authentic wits.
