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.

Enjoyed out of a bottle, however I did pour a little in a glass to witness exactly what I would have expected... a hazy glowing golden color with noticeable sediment.
The aromas of dried apricot, lemon zest, white flowers, orange marmalade, vanilla candle wax and banana muffins are most prevalent.
Flavors mirror the aromas with heavy citrus tones, pear liqueur, chamomile and white rose potpourri.
This is a great offering for the hot weather and I feel like I am enjoying every beer that is light and refreshing as the thermometer pushes 100 everyday here in Vegas.
Not the best Ommegang offering, but I would buy it again with the right meal. I would like to try this with some lemon pepper grilled chicken or some pan seared cod with orange/ginger emulsion.
No doubt a quality beer, but Ommegang comes out with so many fantastic offerings it is hard to match your own success sometimes...

On tap. Once again this hits the spot. Smooth rich flavors & textures are the hallmark of this well balanced brew. Just the right hint of citrus & sweetness with a dryness that leaves you not so much WANTING more, but giving it some serious thought. Hard not to draw a romantic parallel and mine is of an attractive blonde that you've just had a serious philosophical discussion with.
