Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2003
(33 ml bottle) Cloudy yellow body, with a dense white head. Banana hints as a backdrop to a citrus aroma. Smooth crisp taste, with an interessting palate that I can't place. A good summer session beer.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 23, 2003
A cloudy yellow color with a foamy white head. Nose is quite nice but not very strong. I taste coriander, orange peels, vanilla, and maybe a little pepper. Smooth on the palate. A great Belgian white.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 Pale yellow, almost milky looking, snow white head. Plenty of citrus and spice in the aroma and flavor. A very good witbier.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2003
Another nice blanche. Orange and citrus taste. Fizzy and spicy. By now, this is my favorite blanche. Good for any occasion.

12oz bottle-nice clove/spicy aroma-appearance was pale yellow and cloudy, almost white(i wonder why....)flavor was spicy and sweet. definately one of the better witbier selections out there along with the victory whirlwind.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2003
a medium white head, with a milky white appearance. an interesting texture that seems heavier that it actually is. a flavor similar to a razz-wheat (strange but true)

The cloudy appearance might make Hoegaarden seem watery, but the cloudiness is intentional. The flavour of the beer is very strong, but surprisingly, it is a very sweet beer, without a hint of bitterness. Not something I'd drink a lot of, because I'm classless, but definitely a very different beer.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2003
Consumed at Cafe Pushkin in Moscow. Faint wheat aroma. Cloudy yellow body with white head and very good lacing. Head is mostly lasting until the end. Flavor is fairly subtle; wheaty, but very, very drinkable. Better as it warms. Good with seafood.

This is the first white beer I ever tried and I was very dissapointed, it was nothing I expected from a belgian beer. Small head that goes away quickly and an interesting aroma. Little body and nothing special about it whatso ever.
