Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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 an Ommegang chalice. Muted yellow color, cloudy and beautiful. Smells of slight floral and citrus note. The taste of the Witte has some subtle saison to it, and the coriander is distinct. Overall a delicious and flavorful beer, though not Ommegangs best, certainly their most suitable for the hot summer days.

Poured a bright but cloudy pale yellow. Two fingers of bright white head, quick-receding with light lacing. Mildly sweet aroma of wheat, light lemon, and spice.

Light-bodied, creamy, and ample carbonation. Light honey and wheat up front followed by lemon, a hint of orange zest, and gently spicy hops. Clean finish without much bitterness.

Balanced and refreshing. Pretty light overall.
