This beer looks, smells and tastes wonderful. Cloudy, citrus-y sweet and incredibly refreshing. The perfect thirst-quencher for our hot, humid Atlanta summers.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 I really wanted to like this beer as I had heard so many people rave about it. However, I won’t be so ignorant to say it’s crap, but it sure taste’s like it. I suffered through two bottles poured into a glass. The head was awesome and the beer looked great, but I couldn’t stomach the taste. I actually liked the Blue Moon Belgian White better.
Re:rate - I must have gotten a bad batch a few years back, this beer is not that bad. In fact, it’s rather tasty and refreshing. I don’t love Witbiers but this is one of the better ones.

Lightly cloudy pale golden in color with an egg white head that is modestly retained. Aroma is spicy/yeasty. Flavor is spicy with light wheast flavor. Finish is dry. Nice thirst quencher.

Alright, this where me and the import guys but heads. This is rank, one glass was enough for anyone in the room.
Out of 10 people (all of which who have had well over 200 different beers) this was not one they’d recomend. Come on, the smell alone was enough to make a horse puke. I’ll stop there. But, please, go buy a 6 of these and enjoy. For that matter, buy two 6’s, and all of you enjoy.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Super head and a nice cloudy yellow appearance. Very nice taste with a subdued sweet citrus taste. Aftertaste is very good as well.

(on tap) Going back this was the first witt I ever tasted, so.... Lots of foam, lots ofbanana to the nose. A big mouth for a scottish ale-lover, but I really like the fullness of a Hoegaarden. Thanx for keeping up the good work in the hard times after WW2.

Very light, a little too thin for my liking. The flavour that is there is nice but there’s not nearly enough of it.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 this beer is very refreshing. it is really light in body, but its not light on taste. the flavour is definitely not lacking, but its not too forceful which allows it to go down smooth. i had it served to me in a giant Hoegaarden pint glass which is really heavy and looks awesome. i noticed that the head stuck around for longer than most beers. Awesome brew.
