UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 17 Aug 2004 Aroma: Earthy, banana & apple hop complexity. Appear: Too grey, cloudy light yellow, you can?t get much lighter colour. low retention, some suds lacing. Flovour: Bubblegum, bannana with some spice. Palate: Watery but too fizzy.

Perfect example of the style. I have tried, unsuccessfully, to clone this beer but cannot attain the subtle nuances and depth of this beer. I imagine this beer gets lower marks from other raters because of its mass market availability. If it were homebrewed in some garage and bottled by the brewers daughter I bet it would be much more received. What a shame, this beer is perfect.

The precious drink of one of my Tory friends in Britain. Light tasting, best with an infused lemon, some of the whitest beer I’ve seen for this style. Overall, very enjoyable, though slightly lacking the a certain bite or dimension you would desire. Would like to have it in a normal pint glass though; the special octo-style(?) Hoegaarden glass is rather clumsy.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 I referenced Hoegaarden in another review and realized I hadn’t reviewed it yet. I hope it can forgive me because I love it. Its just so refreshing and even looks like nice glass of lemonade. But tastes totally unlike lemons and totally like goodness.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Soapy Gold pour with a brilliant frothy head and an original and distinctive light spice taste. One of the finest widely distributed witbiers I have ever had.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Re-rate 2005. <P> Had this just after a Guinness and Smithwicks and it was easily the most flavorful of the three. The sourness in the finish is nice and while at times it tastes a little like sour citrus fruit it is balanced by the spices so never gets unpalatable. <P> On tap at Yeoman’s Road Pub in Tampa. Pours a hazy gold. Yeasty fruity, hay-like aroma. Tastes of ripe fruit and spices. Great mouthfeel like all wheats, substantial while still being refreeshing.

The first time I had this beer (a long time ago now), I didn’t like it. I thought it was too soapy. But now, (a long time later) I’ve matured and learnt to appreciate the qualities of a good beer. This was a very pleasant, light-tasting beer tasting of wheat and spices, but smooth enough that the spices are still not overpowering. Two thumbs up! Thanks to RichJ7 for refreshing my memory on this one!

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Bottled -- Pours a very pale straw colour, with a fantastic frothy head and decent spicy aroma. Head retention was average. The taste of orange and coriander complement the slight wheat malty flavour ok, little bit of hoppyness. Clean and very refreshing, would have no trouble drinking large amounts of this beer.

murky light golden colour with a large fluffy head in the beginning. head decreased rapidly after initial pour. breaded yeast aroma. taste of light wheat, grains and yeast. nice lightweight enjoyable beer.
