Ommegang Witte

$4.48, Green’s Beverage, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA.

Little or no “pop” to the opening of the corked and caged 750 mL bottle, but a lot of effervesence on the pour.

Wonderful golden yellow color and decent head with some lacing. Rather thin mouthfeel, but classic clove aroma and taste undertone. (The bottle mentions corriander, and there are certainly spices, but to me they are more clove-like in character)

A little prickly in the mouth too, from the carbonation. Somewhat watery feel in the mouth. The mouthfeel here was a big let down of an otherwise very nice beer. If you can overcome the light feel in the mouth this remains a decent example of the style and good value, but there are better Wit’s and much better Ommegang’s out there.
