Ommegang is one of my favorite breweries. No surprise there as their specialty is the belgian-style beer. My favorite of the brew is again, no surprise, their Witte ale, though I’ve enjoyed all their year-round brews and would love to try as many of their seasonals as possible, especially the Chocolate Indulgence.
The Witte beer pours a standard cloudy, pale yellow characteristic of witbiers. It has a lot of carbonation with a slight citrus, classic wheat bouquet. The taste is light, crisp, and very refreshing. I tried this beer originally at a beer festival held at the Maryland Zoo in 2009 and fell in love with it. I have bought it several times since then and will continue to as long as they produce it!
