Pours cloudy yellow-white with a creamy tight white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with a hint of spices. Medium smooth palate. Sweet wheaty flavour with a fruity citrus aftertaste. Very drinkable.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2003
Cloudy, pale yellow, sparkling, thick creamy nice white head that lasts. Fruity, spiced, notes of orange and yeast in aroma. Medium body, smooth and balanced, bit sweet, fresh and easy to drink. Also moderate bitter, fruity and tart. Bit dry and tart finish.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 On tap. Without a doubt, this beer takes Blue Moon to school. Nice golden color, kinda of like lemonade. It has the taste you can only find in European wheat beers. Problably a good reccomendation for the ladies.

Like white gold. The cloudy color is beautiful. The white head is a perfect compliment. The beer smells of orange and lemon, even a bit of bubble gum, very much in fact. The taste is very mild. I have had this with a lemon as well which does bring out certain flavors but takes away from others. This should be enjoyed alone. Wonderful refreshing beer.

MaBeer1972 (1279) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 Wow! Finally got around to trying this one last weekend. Just wonderful! Very light in appearance, truly "White-ish" when held up to the light. VERY easy to drink and enjoy. Update: since I first rated this in 2003, it has become much more widely available. Thank goodness. Cause this is a damn good summer drink!

This was my first wheat beer. I was taken with its orange and spice flavors. As the beer got warmer, the flavors seemed even more promounced. Great wheat!

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Consensus seems to smile on Hoegaarden. Heavier on the coriander and wheat than on citrus, with orangepeel and banana detectable. The appearance is about as "wit" as they get. Looks like a fresh lemonade with carbonation. Fairly light body. One of the better representations of the style.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2003
Mild but pleasing clove aroma. Beaultiful cloudy straw colour with medium head but little lacing. Spiciness and fruitiness not apparent except for a mild lemon flavour. Too citrus not enough wheat. Body somewhat lacking. Not to be avoided but certainly not a first choice. Bottle.

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 Pours out w a decent head/some lace.Smells like a white beer/tastes pretty nice but..I like the dirty appearance of this one(very true belgian appearance)
