Notes/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.

Witte is pleasantly light on the tongue, balanced between malt and wheat sweetness. Hops and spice with a subtle clove note backed by flavors of lemon and sweet orange give way to a dry, crisp, refreshing finish.

Poured into a tumbler in late 2013.

A: See through light yellow. Quickly receding head.

S: Citrus, wheat, coriander.

T: Follows the nose. Subtle flavors, though. Also has a familiar Ommegang flavor that is in many of their beers.

O: There are many better wits than this one out there. It was just too subtle for me.
