Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow. A nice foamy head that laced out. Citrusy coriander aroma. There is a nice carbonated feel, but the flavor was more watery than I expected. Refreshing but without the substance I wanted.

Very light but extremely flavorsome…Touches of curaçao and coriander, lemon and pepper…Too easy for me though…

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 Bottle... It’s pale, but then again, it’s a wit; Albino beer. Is it good? For the style, I guess. Mostly water and fizz though. ’Nuff said.

my best hoegaarden experince was when touring with the ale street news group to belgium strictly for beer and culture. our flight was late arriving in brussels our beerless leader tony forder phoned ahead to the brewery and tey said being an hour late did not matter but was there anything they could do for us and his reply was have a beer ready. so when we arrived and entered the pub they were immediately pouring us fresh wit beer from the source words could not describe everybodys reaction especially for the first beer of the day.austinpowers inspired me to writ this little bit of a story because this was my first experience with wit while in belgium and why i think it rates a 5.0 especialy under these circumstances

This beer poured a light straw color and was slightly cloudy with some carbonation. It formed a white head which subsided and left very little lace. It had a nice citrus aroma to it. The taste had citrus and some hops, and the carbonation created a slightly tangy finish. A good summer beer.

What an enjoyable beer. Pours out to a very pale, hazy gold in the glass with a cloudlike, puffy, foamy head. Taste is that of wheat, yeast, citrus and very light clove. What a tasty beer!!!
