Dedollewaitor (14641) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2006
Unclear golden with fine white head. Aroma of yeast fruits(citrus) & spices. Ok filling texture. Wheat and spices dominates throughout and ends up with a bitter finish. Pleasant and good alternative to the regular Hoegaarden.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeĺ, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a hazy marmalade orange with creamy head. Sweet yeasty aroma with hint of banana and coconut. Good mouthfeel, with sweet orange flavour and pepper spices and a medium/hard bitter finish. Only negatives would be a little too sweet and obvious alcohol.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours a hazy dark yellowy coulour with a big white head. Ester driven aroma, spicy (cloves), citrus fruits and dusty yeast. Fairly balanced and pleasant. Body is full and sticky, flavour is estery, with caramel, some soft spices and a warm alcohol finish. Not too shabby.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
Interesting. Tastes like Hoegaarden with a hint of Special Brew - strong, spicy, some alcohol evident on the palate but the aroma is almost identical to Hoegaarden White. Cloudy orange, thin head but plenty of carbonation, loads of yeasty floaties. Interesting and flavoursome, so as rocket fuel this gets full marks from me, but I prefer the regular witbier I think.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
330ml bottle at The White Horse, Parson’s Green. Similar in appearance and aroma to regular Hoegaarden wheat beer but with a crisp, full bodied taste that shows its alcoholic strength. The citrus tang really comes out in the finish. Decent stuff.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Pours a hazy light orange color with a white head. Aroma is light malt, orange, coriander, and a hint of yeast. Flavor is bitter orange peel, coriander, with a dry bitter finish.

imdownthepub (11377) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Bottled, 330ml. Pale orange gold with big white head. Spicy, thick aroma leading to a good medium roast body with notes of banana and coriander, but also somewhat sweet. The alcohol is well dispersed in the flavours making it fairly rounded. I quite like it without going mad for it.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden colour with a small head. Smell is of spices and oranges, have smellt this somewhere before but can’t place it, nonetheless very nice. Taste is a bit too much alcohol present, but also again the very nice herbs and oranges.
