Had this on tap at Cooter Brown's in New Orleans. A delicious ale to drink with oysters on the half shell. Milky white golden in color. Aroma belies the coriander and curacao flavors. Very very sour and I like it. Perhaps a slight anise detected? Bon Temps Roulet, dude!

Belgian whites arent my thing. The taste is too mild and the fruityness is overpowering in such a light beer.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 on tap in a hoegaarden tumbler. creamy white head that thins quickly with very little lacing. cloudy yellow color. I thought it was a grassy note, but after reading up it must have been orange. lots of fizz and taste starts in very mild. on the sweet side but very faint. super mild hop finish. very drinkable. went good with the fries at Frjtz in SF.

Very pale in color, almost albino like. Distinctively different than most of the American whites where the orange and coriander dominate. This is more complex with a variety of spices coming through. I've often heard of people describing the taste of bubble gum in a beer and I thought they were crazy. This has that taste. overall, I don't like this as much as many of the American immitators. I like the citrus strength of them better (Avery for example).

33cl brown bottle.First aroma is home-made ginger beer then citrus & coriander. Good white head.I don't know if it lasts cos I always knock straight back as its a great thirst quenchet.Cloudy pale gold.Medicinal flavour at first then like the aroma the coriander, citrus & ginger remain. Sold on tap in yuppee London pubs where its outrageously expensive.A great lunchtime tipple with or without the lemon

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Whenever I see this on tap (which isn't often), it's the one I'll grab. So unique. Appearance is cloudy bright yellow. Head is a rich white and decent thickness. Carbonation is good. Aroma is of crisp citrus + Chimay like at first (i.e. medicinal / licorice). Citrus stands out over any spices (clove / coriander?). Flavor is mildly spicy and citrusy. Adding a wedge of lemon really works here. Mouth feel is nice, smooth, and tingly. I'm not getting the hint of yeast others describe, but I definitely sense the wheat. Finish is fresh and clean. No bitterness. Some tartness in the aftertaste, but very mild. Yep, I like it big bunches. Overall, this is one of my favorites and a real winner. I think it's because of this beer's refreshing nature and unique cloudy yellow appearance.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Nice frothy 2" white head. Pale yellow cloudy appearance. Certainly light fresh and floral nose with a hint of boiled Suidae (No kidding). Maybe apple and some spruce(citrus). Powdery gum-like mouthfeel quite enjoyable.
