Review: Ommegang Witte

A Belgian White (Witbier) brewed by
Brewery Ommegang (Moortgat)

Cooperstown, New York USA

ABV: 5.1%

Glassware: Snifter

Poured from the bomber a cloudy yellow bordering on orange with a nice head. The aroma had floral notes and a whole ton of citrus. Mild banana in the nose as well with hints of vanilla. Had with a lobster and it went perfect with the soft meat and the smooth butter. Overall the beer was smooth and balanced but at times there was nearly too much orange or citrus as it may be. On the palate it has a feel which is creamy with nutty wheat and crisp carbonation with mild spice additions adding a dry element contrasting the tang of the citrus. For the style it is up there on my list.

Beer Advocate food pairing suggestions: Cheese (peppery; Monterey / Pepper Jack, tangy; Brick, Edam, Feta) General (Salad) Meat (Poultry, Fish, Shellfish)

My Ratebeer.com rating: 3.8
