Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 05-01-2004

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.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast citrus notes of some orange peel, spicy notes and some light banana. Taste is wheat, citrusy orange peel, banana and yeast with a bit of sweet tartness. Palate is a light body, crisp mouth feel and good carbonation. Finishes with a sweet citrusy flavor, some yeast, wheat notes with some light banana end has a bit tartness. Overall a good refreshing session ale.

Served on-draught into a tapered branded "Ommegang witte" witbier glass at the Daily Pint in Santa Monica. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of slight cream, nice thickness, and good retention. Colour is a cloudy yellow. No yeast particles are visible. Appealing and to style. Not unique or special, but well done.

Sm: Lemon peel. Citrusy esters. Refreshing and fresh. Clean light malts. A simple yet full mild to moderate strength aroma.

T: Lemon peel and clean malts. A bit simple for the brewery. Refeshing. Nicely balanced and well built. There's not much to say about it given its simplicity.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Light on the palate. Neither too thick nor too thin, but not quite right. Adequately carbonated.

Dr: Extremely drinkable for the style. Quite nice, but not unique or special. I'd have it again on-tap at a good price. Witbier fans will enjoy it.
