Really wasnít overly impressed for all the hype. Poured a cloudy off-white/yellow, almost green in color. Aroma of citrus and orange. Went down very smooth, but taste was overly citrus for my liking. Still, not a bad beer, just not to my tastes.

Iíve been enjoying witbiers since Iíve been aware of their existence, and yet this is my first time sampling "the original".Color: a cloudy, almost opaque pale yellow/bright white. Head: thick, lacey, white, fluffy as a cloud, slowly tumbling down. Aroma: uplifting, light and lovely! Full of citrus, spice, lemon/orange...wide open, spacious, airy, friendly and hospitable. All that in an aroma? Yes, Indeed! A great big barrage of hops charges the palate at first, along with the gritty, grainy wheat texture. After that attack, very smooth and mellow. Light in body,and feeling, but rich in flavor, character, and soul. An utter delight every time it touches the tongue! An overall honey flavor dominates the remainder of the drink, and the delicious hops, the texture, the spice, continue to dance on the palate and provide for a richly rewarding refreshment. When other folks talk of "nothing beating a Bud Light/Corona/generic yellowy water" on a hot summerís day, they would be wiser to wrap their lips around a glass of Hoegaarden. Wiser, happier, more improved in all aspects as a human being! What a beautiful beer!

Decent head for a witbier. Not much of an aroma, but thereís hints of spice and citrus. Spicy, fruity, citrusy. Very refreshing. Itís the perfect summer beer. This is the standard by which all Belgian Whites should be measured

Not much head, unclear pale yellow colour, but it is full of spices and fruits. Fizzy, really reminds of Champagne. Itís taste is very complex and evokes lots of interesting ingredients. This is really the Queen of white beers !

I first had this beer on tap and really enjoyed it. I then found it in bottles and it is now one of the beers I like to drink. I use to enjoy Blue Moon but since I have had this I donít know if I can go back. A light refreshing enjoyable beer.

Oh the classic belgian white beer. Normal hazy oragne color, white soapy head, and of course the citrusy aroma and flavors. I am of course not a huge fan of the belgian white, or at least I have not yet found one that I like.

Delicious wit. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a serious white head. Sweet citric aroma, some spicing. Good, full mouthfeel. Citric flavors with apple, pear, and spices. Bit of an orange-ish aftertaste. Refreshing, excellent brew.

Probably the best wheat beer I ever tasted, it leaves you with incredible flavour in your mouth, could really taste a bit of orange in it, if you are ever in Belgium thats the beer to drink, fantastic
