first thoughts: excellent! Great fruity aroma. Cool looking white beer. Tastes fantastic. Wheaty taste, and the spice is a nice touch.

Nice spicy orange aroma.Always fresh and refreshing,even if it is mass produced.I wish Hoegaardens other spin offs like Julius and Grand Cru were more easily available.One of the best Summer beers

So very lively!! Pale yellow, thin white head, very tiny bubbles, beautiful! Loaded with spices, cloves and coriander, light and pleasant. A surprisingly big & full mouthfeel. Lively palate, Nice toastey notes among the pleasant oranginess. finishes full of body.

Very yellow pale color, very hazy. Large head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Medium bodied wit beer. Fruity flavor, with oranges, coriander and ginger being the primary flavors. It a mildly sweet, lightly malty and slightly bitter beer. Clean, light and refreshing. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Admittedly, I am not a huge Belgian White fan. However, to the credit of this beer, I was pleasantly surprised, if not by its flavor, but by its nice palate and aftertaste. This is a very pleasant beer.

Decent, light, spicy: not astonishing but definitely better than the Michigan Brewing Celis stuff. It has citrus and spice, to be sure, but beyond that a faint chemical afterburn and through the whole thing a dramatic inconsistency of texture - skyrocket lemon head but fading to nothing at finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 [rerate needed] Pour was murky light with medium head, rich taste of coriander and orange peel really show up. Smooth and light on the mouth, avoiding the harshness that other witbiers have. Very enjoyable.

Quite a nice beer. Cloudy with medium head and slightly sour flavor. I dunno about the best beer in the world, but I'd drink it again.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Cool bottle nice cloudy beer. Weiss beer is the best and this and Hacker-Pschorre are the best of the genre. I must say I can't make up my mind between the two of which is the worlds best beer. Great w lemon, and it tastes as good as a great meal. Light and smooth.
