Pours a very pale and hazy yellow color with a beautiful tall foamy white head. Unusually pale yellow like a lemonade. The body has hints of sour apple and citrus flavor. Finishes with a sweet candy flavor. Overall, a superb belgian white.

poured out into the glass very hazy yellow straw, lots of mixing of whites and yellows, like watching watery latex paint mix. A huge creamy, thick, foamy head grew over and beyond and was quite a thrill to see. Smells right away of the orange and lemon, extremely citrusy. Nothing out of the ordinary for this Belgian beauty, but good non the less. Tastes of a citrus brew, very citrusy with orange and lemon strongly presented and felt, with a hint of spice, coriander I believe.

(33 ml bottle) Cloudy yellow body, with a dense white head. Banana hints as a backdrop to a citrus aroma. Smooth crisp taste, with an interessting palate that I can't place. A good summer session beer.

A cloudy yellow color with a foamy white head. Nose is quite nice but not very strong. I taste coriander, orange peels, vanilla, and maybe a little pepper. Smooth on the palate. A great Belgian white.

Another nice blanche. Orange and citrus taste. Fizzy and spicy. By now, this is my favorite blanche. Good for any occasion.

a medium white head, with a milky white appearance. an interesting texture that seems heavier that it actually is. a flavor similar to a razz-wheat (strange but true)

The cloudy appearance might make Hoegaarden seem watery, but the cloudiness is intentional. The flavour of the beer is very strong, but surprisingly, it is a very sweet beer, without a hint of bitterness. Not something I'd drink a lot of, because I'm classless, but definitely a very different beer.
