Another nice blanche. Orange and citrus taste. Fizzy and spicy. By now, this is my favorite blanche. Good for any occasion.

a medium white head, with a milky white appearance. an interesting texture that seems heavier that it actually is. a flavor similar to a razz-wheat (strange but true)

The cloudy appearance might make Hoegaarden seem watery, but the cloudiness is intentional. The flavour of the beer is very strong, but surprisingly, it is a very sweet beer, without a hint of bitterness. Not something I'd drink a lot of, because I'm classless, but definitely a very different beer.

Consumed at Cafe Pushkin in Moscow. Faint wheat aroma. Cloudy yellow body with white head and very good lacing. Head is mostly lasting until the end. Flavor is fairly subtle; wheaty, but very, very drinkable. Better as it warms. Good with seafood.

This is the first white beer I ever tried and I was very dissapointed, it was nothing I expected from a belgian beer. Small head that goes away quickly and an interesting aroma. Little body and nothing special about it whatso ever.

This Belgian White poured a large invigorating white creamy head with fine-small bubbles. The lacing was sparse on the sides of my glass. The body was a cloudy yellow. The aroma was fruity in my opinion and it had a slight bitter taste to it. I truly enjoyed drinking this brew while it lasted, right thedm?? This brew went down way too smooth!!

This brew poured an envigorated head of creamy fine white bubbles and a carbonated cloudy light yellow body. It had a mild banana-hop aroma. It started fizzy and buttery then finshed smoothly in a banana floral flavor. Indeed, this was another very nice brew.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 Did I just have an off bottle? Did my tastes change? It hasn't been that long since I had this beer, and I remembered loving it. This one poured the cloudy pale yellow that I was expecting, but the head died fast and abruptly. The flavor was close to what I remember, orange followed by coriander, but the wheat field that I recalled was strangely lacking. Light bodied, as was expected, but a bizarre, biting astringency that lasted throughout the glass. Coriander came through more as it warmed. Disappointing, will need to rerate when I know I have a fresh bottle. RERATE, 6/18/03, just had it last week on draft, that was the beer I remembered. Beautiful wheat flavor, well balanced spiciness, none of the astringency from the bottle I had recently had, and a pretty lacing head to boot. Much better. Original ratings were 8/4/7/2/15.
