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.

So I was at Bareburger and saw "Ommegang" on the draft menu. I asked the waitress which Ommegang it was but she wasn’t able to give me a good answer. Decided to order it anyway and try to figure out the mystery. After doing some research, I’m 99 percent sure this is what I had. Pours a very hazy straw color yellow. Aroma is mild wheat with some mild citrus. Beer was very carbonated. Tastes of again mild wheat and mild citrus. Weak bitter finish that doesnt last long. Beer is very smooth and easy to drink, but the flavors are weak and subdued. Maybe that has more to do with the style than the beer, but it just didn’t click with me. Meh.

Clear, pale yellow pour with thick fine white foam. Sweet cereal nose with touches of citrus and coriander and pepper. The taste is a little watery at first and the spices take some time to emerge. A good lemony tartness provides the background but succumbs to the malt, eventually. The taste is classic with a sour malt finish. I was hoping for something a little more on the edge from Ommegang.

On tap at brunch today with Erica (Mussels n Sausages) and many times before. Always solid. Looks very nice - ultrapale yellow almost whitr. Nose yeasty and salty. Palate light yeast, light hop, salty/coriander flavor with some candy. Extremely refreshing crisp mouthfeel which when very cold and fresh is even better due to moderate carbonation.

0,355l bottle from Beergium. A bit hazy, light yellow beer with medium white head. Aroma has banana, wheat and sweet malts. Taste has some hints of citrus, wheat. Not much else. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice to drink on a hot summer day in terrace, but nothing else.

What do you call this? White ale, huh? Sounds pretty racist to me. Pekkcom.

Got one bottle,thinking it was something new since it is labelled ’White Wheat Ale" instead of Witte... but I guess not. It’s at 5.2% and conforms to the usual descriptions, such as ’Very citrus forward with a little spice on the aftertaste. Earthy tones prevail along with a slightly dish soap reminiscent lemony tint and tartness. Light bodied and refreshing on a warm afternoon.’ Yeah, soapy, boring, not that great and the spice, coriander or clove, is not one I care for in an ale. One and done.

ciocanelu (2532) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 3, 2017
Hazy bright yellow color with rocky white head. Aroma has wheat, banana and vanilla sweetness, really nice. Taste is not really sweet but has some banana flavor. Also some sourdough, a little astringent and bitter. Light body, medium carbonation but feels quite smooth. Overall it’s a pretty good witbier but the flavor doesn’t match the aroma.

Taste: Big wheat, salted biscuit, lemon with a bit of a toothy mouthfeel, airy finish. Citrus and wheat biscuit nose. Bright Gold, mostly clear, white very carbonated head with some lace. Medium body.

Tasting at brewery. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is clove, coriander, wheat, and vague orange. Taste is wheat, clove, coriander, banana, and lemon. Dry finish. Light body. Lively carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Feels very close to a hefeweizen.
