Being quite new to tasting specialty beers of the world, I know I’ll run across other great beers, but this one has to be one of the finest of the whites to me right now.

i’ve had celis white just before this one... aroma: spices, lemon, other spices. taste: lemon, koriander, bit sweet. i liked celis white much better in taste and palate. not bad though!

On tap at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford Really refreshing especially with half a slice on lemon. Good wheat beer with just a tang of orange and coriander. If nothing else is on I am quite happy to have this

Classic belgian wit, for sure. Cloudy, white appearance. Aroma of banana and grapefruit. Flavor is laced with orange and bananas, as well as baking soda. Drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Draught on hot patio at Fionn MacCool’s. Pours with a big, fine, white small rocked head, a thin lacing left behind - in the stupid oversized Hoegaarden glass is a thick-looking opaque, murky bright yellow liquid, resembles pure grapefruit juice. No bubbling - not appealing at all. Aroma is heavy on the soapy cilantro/coriander, with sharp yeast, wheat flour, euro-hops, cigarette ash and tart grapefruit-lemon; bit like a wheat beer on steroids. Taste was actually - initially - quite mild, heavy on the tobacco ash, coriander, sour lemonade - no malt and only a touch of hop. Weak but clean on the palate with a quick diminsh until the second half of the glass, when the ashy bitterness started to overstay its welcome on my tongue. Mouthfeel somewhat acidic. Hate to say it, but a squeeze of lemon helped me finish my pint. *re-rate November 2006 - really very good, 2.9 was way too low - soft mouth, almost creamy, light acidity, citric, yeasty and lightly spiced - I like Unibroue’s Blanche de Chambly better (more body) but this is good at being what it is ...

Bottle. A very light yellow pour. Citrusy smell and a very fruity taste. A good finish but the taste lasts too long. Could use a little less spice in it.

This is a good beer but I dont like coriander and for me there is way too much in it.
