Pours straw colour with no head. Hazy stucture, fast rising bubbles-high carbonation. Aroma without presence of alcohol, only fruity-floral aroma, with notes of bread and pine. Similar is taste: without presence of alcohol, little citrusy, tropical...hop bitterness is medium. Hop bitterness is well balanced with malt sweetness; malt sweetness, with notes of wheat, is medium. Body is dry, bitterness is low-medium, also bitterness in finish. Drinkable and appropriate beer for its style.

A class act. Looks great - cloudy with a snowy white head. Low carbonation, easy to drink and very smooth. As easy to session as it is to savour the flavour. A hit of fruit, then some bitterness. Although fruity, it’s like the Erdinger Weissbrau type beers in that the fruit is not overpowering and they deliver it in an almonst mellow way, unlike English ales which can be much less refined with the delivery of fruity flavours. Very well balanced between fruitiness and bitterness. Almost a smoky taste to it too. I much prefer this to English type ales. If you don’t really like English type ales, don’t be put off trying this, as it’s very different.

Served in a Thai restaurant, this is the perfect beer to drink with Thai food.

6 flessen gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in origineel zeshoekig Hoegaarden glas. Fraai lichtgeel troebel bier met compacte witte schuimkraag die zich vrij snel terugtrekt. Aroma's van Belgische gist, graan, citrus en koriander. De smaak volgt de geur precies, frisse mouten, Belgische gist, sinaasappel en koriander. De afdronk is meer kruidig dan hoppig. Ook weer zo'n klassiek Belgisch bier, dat ik al jaren drink. Voor mij is de Hoegaarden wit nog steeds het beste witbier wat ik tot nu toe heb geproefd, zeer geschikt voor een warme zomerdag. Dorstlessend, licht fris kruidig en perfect gebalanceerd. Wel koud drinken, rond de 3 graden, drinkt dan extreem makkelijk weg.

Cloudy yellow pour, fluffy white head. Nose is spice and yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is soft wheat, muted citrus and coriander. Finish is slightly dry, little more citrus kick.

0,33 l Flasche aus der Bierothek in Nürnberg. Hat mich nach dem eingießen, von der Sämigkeit und Farbe sehr an ein bayerisches Hefe-Weizen erinnert. Leicht fruchtiger Geschmack. Gesamt sehr gelungenes Bier

Wygląd: Skąpa biała piana, która unosi się na tafli słomkowego zamglonego piwa Aromat: Dobrze wyczuwalne przyprawy - głównie kolendra. W tle charakterystyczny zapach pszenicy. Smak: Niska słodycz uzupełniona jest niską goryczką. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie dobrze wyczuwalne są przyprawy. Odczucie: Silnie nasycenie dwutlenkiem węgla. Jest to wodnisty lekki Witbier.

Has a nice yeasty aroma. It is cloudy from not being filteret. If poured right it has a very nice head - but most often is poured like a pilsener and then it ends up without any head. It has a nice refreshing yeast and fruit flavor. A great beer on a hot summer day for quencing your thirst.

Halmgul öl med stort vitt skum som dock försvinner ganska snabbt. Doft och smak av citrus, jäst och koriander. , Något tunn kropp. En trevlig sommaröl.
