This beer is very citrusy. It has a very nice color, and a nice head, but the head goes quickly. It is usually with a lemon. But it gets too sour and bitter for me. The body is thicker than most citrusy beers. But it spreads good on the palate. The beer is very refreshing when served very cold.

Had on tap in Belgium. I love this beer! Smooth flavor and nice finish. Hop bitterness is about right for a white. Very refreshing. If it were available at my local market I would definitely get some.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Pours cloudy pale yellow with medium white foamy head that fades quickly. Aroma is lively and teasing herbal Corriander, cloves, citrus orange/lemon zest. Effervescent tart and refreshing. Flavour is not as deep as the aroma. A well rounded green banana and sweet grain in the flavour.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Poured cloudy with a yellowish orange tinge. Citris hoppiness. Great balance and a wonderful summer beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3580) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Tap. Nice banana and lemony yeastiness in the aroma. Crisp and fresh. Hazy light blonde color with a white head. Citrus, lemons, bananas to start with some creaminess following. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing to finish. Despite being macro’ed with InBev, this is still a classic beer and should be a benchmark for all witbiers.(7/4/7/4/15)~~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~~ Best by 10/10/13. The aroma is full of citrus with some lemon and pineapple esters present. Almost smells like Unibroue. Lightly spicy. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a very rapidly dissipating bubbly white head. Starts highly carbonated, before some light coriander and gumball esters come through. A little husky wheat character in the middle. Finishes with light lemon acidity. Nice.

On tap. Cloudy yellow with a thin lacing head. Aroma was spice and fruit. Flavor was the same. Heavy carbonation. Nice beer.

celogan (204) - Oroville, California, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Pourd Cloudy light yellow with small head that stuck around a while, but no lacing. Foretaste was nice light spiciness with cloves and fruit. Light but refreshing. Carbonation was decent. Nothng significant in the aroma but still in all, this is a nice litte summer beer even though it lacked hops presence.

Great beer for theose hot summer days. Fruity, cloudy(as it should be). Only if I could find a Hoegaarden glass... It tasts soo much better in the correct glass.

Fruity and juicey, this beer has a nice flavor. Spicey and bold with nice orange peel and nutmeg. A tad too sweet for it’s own good, but just light enough too please the palate, but I wouldn’t get drunk off this.
