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.

After a cheerful pop from the cork this pours a hazy straw colored gold with a bone white head of foam that fell off to a thin skin and cap that never left. Great soapy lace. This beer literally glows in the glass and is so lovely to look at. Nose is bright and funky with Belgian, citrus, and hay. Underneath is a big malt profile with wheat, honey and grain. A touch of spice and orange rind as it warms. Taste is tart with lemon and dry with a hint of hop bitter that stands up gracefully next to a big cracker malt and fresh wheat. Creamy clean, sparkling carbonation, it leaves with a touch of honey and a taste of sour not bitter . Drinks light and amiable. Ommegang has done it again with a classic wit that’s radiant and refreshing.
