Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 Large white head. Hazy golden body. Deliciously spiced (coriander), malty and restrained bitterness. Medium body, soft palate. Very drinkable.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Spices, fruits and a bit of yeast in the aroma. Cloudy golden color, with a fast disappearing white head. Warm spicy taste, with hints of yeast and some orange. Warm alcohol feel. This is a fine belgian blond ale.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2004
Hazy golden colour with a slightly spicy aroma. Warm spicy wheaty flavour with hints of coriander. Slightly disappointing - not as drinkable as 'normal' Hoegaarden

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Light orange cloudy pour with almost zero head. Golden color with nice floral aroma. Now this is good stuff. Excellent balance of fruity sweetness, bitterness and a nice alcohol kick.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2004
Murky straw yellow appearance with a large white head. Great aroma of orange and coriander and the flavour of soft spice lemon and overripe oranges. Alcohol is hidden so be careful. Cheers!

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Murky soft yellow with a big coriander and lemon nose, a good witbier aroma. Flavor is less sweet than the aroma, with some musty lemon and wheat characteristics. Slightly metallic though, in the nose, and musty as well. Grityy textured, somewhat sharp. Tastes of dark/old fruit.

Kinz (3361) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Beer 30 Belgium trip. Hazy blonde, big white head. Nose of candy orange, some coriander notes, faint, spice. Big spicy flavors fill the mouth, strong wheat as well. A pumped up, steroid monster version of the blanche.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2003
wheaty aroma with some citrus and spicy aroma, cloudy golden with a nice head that stayed well with some good carbonation. somewhere between a forbidden fruit and a hoegaarden white with complexity of flavours and aromas, citrus, wheat, vanila and dried fruits prevalent. a bit thin on the palate but not disappointing. I'd rate it as between a white and a forbidden fruit in all areas.

radiomgb (2363) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2003
Hazy orange in colour. Aroma of yeast, oranges, pepper and spices. The flavour was quite spicy and yeasty, like a turbo-charged version of the Hoegaarden White. Finishes with a mild peppery bitterness. Not a big fan but still a decent beer.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
Amber ale with almost no head. Aroma of yeast, fruits ans alcool. Taste of malt and alcool with a bitter finish. Not bad, but not among the best in this category (according to me, of course).
