Ommegang’s first fruity, tropical beer ‘Fruition’

Ommegang Fruition

There’s a new fruity year-round offering hitting shelves nationally – Ommegang Fruition.

The base beer begins as Witte, an award-winning year-round offering. The wheat ale is dry-hopped, and turned tropical with the addition of mango, kiwi, and passionfruit. Ommegang touts this new release as “a tart, fruity, and hop-forward beer that is exceptionally drinkable”.

“As with every beer we brew, we strive to make all the elements blend together, and we think we’re succeeded in that quest with Fruition. Fruition is our first foray into the tropical fruit flavors that consumers find so appealing with New World hop varieties, and we look forward to feedback from fans.” – Phil Leinheart, brewmaster
