OMMEGANG Ale, Witte, Wheat
Wheat ale with traditional spices. World Beer cup 2008 silver award Belgian wheat beer. Top fermented and bottle conditioned. Brewery Ommegang is 3,264 miles from Brussels, but its heart is right in Belgium. It was created out of our devotion to the unique ales brewed by the country where brewing is an art and partaking is a passion. Our techniques are thoroughly Belgian and completely traditional. We use Belgian specialty malts, hops, and our own signature house-propagated yeast. Open fermentation, bottle conditioning, and warm cellaring all contribute to the flavorful character of our ales. Taste them for yourself during one of our daily tours. Capture Ommegang Witte's refreshing aroma and frothy head in your own signature Witte glass. Revered for their light body, frothy head, and quenching flavor, white ales are a beloved Belgian tradition. Ommegang Witte combines flavors of sweet orange peel, coriander, and unmalted wheat for a flavor as bright and soft as summer clouds over a Flanders field. This week, drive to Belgium!
