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.

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

Beautiful golden color and white head , more clear than most wheat beers. It has a distinctive wheathy flavour but not too flower like , I love the balance and I would have more than one of these any day

Great, sweet head. Great, sweet-tasting beer. Became, perhaps, my favorite witbier on initial tasting. Tastes salty, lemony, citrus-tinged. Smooth. Not too carbonated. An excellent, refreshing summer drink. Near perfect!

A- Body is an extremely hazy and pale straw yellow color. Body color a wit should have. Pours with a large fluffy white head that quickly fades to a nice collar. No lacing is left behind in the glass. Cloudiness is uniform throughout the body. S- Nice strong smell of citrus and coriander. Sweet, bready, Belgian yeast in the background. T- Big taste for such a light beer. Lots of citrus zest upfront with accents of coriander and some yeast in the background. Citrus fades somewhat for the finish which is all corriander,yeast, and a nice kick of hop bitterness and taste. A doughy sweetness lingers on the palate long after each sip. Great-yet classic example of a witbier taste. P- Medium carbonation and light body. The yeast used makes the mouthfeel very smooth and creamy. Has the excellent mouthfeel of a good hefe. O- This is a great witbier. Classic taste of a witbier with the mouthfeel of a good hefe. This is a great light session ale. I wish this style got more credit around here. Unfortunately, I spilled half of my glass and I only had a 12 oz. bottle. This is definitely something I will have again. My second offering from Ommegang. I have rare vos, three philosophers, ommegeddon, and ommegang abbey waiting in my house and I cant wait to try these ones too! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-12-2007 16:38:53

Very refreshing. Perfect for these hot Florida evenings. Slight citrus taste but nicely muted.

Not a beer expert but Ommegang Witte is one of my favorite beers (character count).

I am a big fan of wittes and this is an excellent one. I could drink this all night and still want more. Very drinkable. Pours a nice cloudy yellow. Aroma of spice, coriander and and straw. Light carbonation with a mild sour flavor. Nice yeast flavor with spice and banana. One of my favorites.
