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 golden bright straw orange. Two finger fluffy super white head. This is how I expect a witbier to look.

Smells of orange/lemon zest and ester. Clove and a touch of hay. Pleasant smell, that's not overpowering.

Taste is light and refreshing. Starts off with the zesty ester and clove. Touch of a hay like hop profile drops off quickly into the more malty backbone. This is not as full bodied as I would love, but tastes great nonetheless.

Mouthfeel is crisp but a touch too watery.

Overall, this is a great wit that I will have again. It's light and crisp while maintaining that typical wit profile.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Extremely cloudy, pale yellow with a very nice, sustained white head.

Smell: Dry wheat with just traces of coriander, clove and orange peel.

Taste: Dry wheat backbone rounded out with sweeter orange peel and some clove notes. The coriander is noticeable on the finish. Overall, the yeast is more spicy than fruity, which lends to the beer's refreshing character.

Feel: Lght body with lively carbonation. Finish is very crisp and dry. One of the best mouthfeels I have experienced for a Wit.

Overall: Crisp and refreshing with a fantastic mouthfeel, although the aroma is muted and the taste profile is not as complex as some Wits. Very good overall, even if not one of the best for its style, nor one of the better Ommegang brews.
