Day #164 – Ommegang Witte

June 14, 2011

At the ole Gingerman Pub tonight for the glass night and boy is it a cool one!

Ommegang Witte

I was hoping they would have this style glass today. I had seen it on the Internet before and when they’ve featured this beer in the past it’s come in some nondescript lame shaker glass which sucks, but tonight they are offering a tumbler style glass! These glasses feature a wide rim with fat ridges around the edge. This beer is classified as a Witbier and has an ABV of 5.1%.

This beer pours a cloudy lemondrop yellow with a white head. The head turns quickly into a ring of white.

The aroma is fresh grains with light spice zest and a touch of lemon.

Flavor is light grain, citrus sweetness and lemon peel. There is a faint sense of bubble gum which comes from the yeast but it’s overall refreshing.

Glad to have this new glass!

Cheers!
