Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Cloudy straw color,small white creamy head that lasted for a decent time and left a nice lace behind.Nice wheat aroma with a decent fruit presence,lemon grass,and a nice amount of spice coming through as well.The flavor is wheaty and mildly fruity with a decent spice coming on.The feel is pretty light with a generous amount of carbonation.The finish is mildly sweet and sour with a light spice.I guess IMO this is nothing special,just an oevrly weak brew with little real flavor but,it does have atleast one nice quality which would be that it is fairly drinkable and would make a nice summer brew.

steview (1035) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
draft. typical hazy pale appearance, blah blah blah not to say it looks bad though. sweet creamy wheat with spice, citrus and floral, dry subtle bitter finish - dies fast though, so there's really no finish... ya know it keeps you from not drinking it ;o) didn't sense much sour, but otherwise it's smooth and available. not too complex and not too simple. just lovely. i'm glad it's so known and available. the beer is great. had this in a smoky bar, i wish to re-rate so i can tighten up what i remember sensing.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Cloudy pale yellow with a puffy white head that reminded me of meringue. The primary aroma is lemon and coriander, but there are subtle hints of peach, vanilla and bergamot. Taste is a marvelous blend of fruit and spices; lemon, banana, peach, orange, coriander, vanilla and clove-they're all there. Mouthfeel is rich smooth and creamy. The Belgian White all others of the style aspire to.

kathouse (1203) - Nevada, USA - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 A refreshing brew for those hot summer days. Color is a cloudy yellow reminiscent of lemonade, but with a nice white foam. Aroma is mild and fruity without being overbearing. Nice citrus flavorings with good hop balance. Finish is clean with no bitterness. A well rounded beer.

Boutip (5037) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
Bottle - Hazy white brew with a nice white foamy head with good retention. Aroma of coriander is strong but pleasant. Body is medium and good have been a bit stronger. Very refreshing beer for those hot summer days.

jaymobrown (1723) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Really hazy light yellow color - sort of like LemonHeads with a crystalized sugar look. Neat little head, and good lacing. Sweet lemon nose, nothing over the top but pleasant. Mostly lemon flavors, and really didn't taste any sourness, which is fine. I find it to be good example of its style.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 This beer pours beautifully with a clean white head and a golden white body that is chock full of sediment. Has a nice aroma of fruit, bubble gum, wheat malt, and coriander. Finishes with a slightly sour fruit taste. This is the first White Beer I have tried and I was very pleased. Even at the nine dollars I paid for a six-pack I would buy this again. Overall I think Hoegaarden White is a delicious and refreshing beer that is perfect for summer fare and hits the spot when you want something different.
