Not the prettiest beer in the world, a little pale for a belgian white, but maybe some people like it that way. Taste, however, seems a bit more refined than some other belgians, though a bit lighter too. A little of that rich yeast flavour, but a little less pungent than others, and the orange and coriander seem more crisp and clear, though not stronger than other belgian whites. I think itís a little overrated, or perhaps some other belgian whites are underrated.

I was sincerely disappointed with this beer. Iím a big fan of Blue Moonís Witbier and since Hoegaarden had a much higher rating, I was looking forward to try it. It came up so short, that I gave away the other five beers in the pack. It has a very light aroma that borders on a cross between lemon and medicine. The taste was somewhat sharp with a very anticeptic aftertaste. I felt as if I was drinking a Listerine Light. The color was cloudy which wouldnít have been a bad thing if the taste was more appealing, but with this bitter, uninviting beer it reminded me more of a beer after it passes through the system. Not recommended.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 By tap or bottle it is constantly fresh and pleasant. The cloudy appearance is oddly inviting and the effervesence combined with the aroma provide a good setup. The flavor is not to my taste, but still pleasant verging on interesting. I find hoegaarden somewhat tinny, perhaps from the lemon, which i could do without. Iíd gladly pick paulaner hefeweizen in place of hoegaarden, but consider them equals. If you like lemon slices in your water, hoegaarden may be THE beer for you.

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

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.
