A very tasty and very dependable Belgian White. The subtle taste of spices add to this wheat style. Not overpowering but refreshingly different than American Lagers. Leave out the lemon, it just screws up the taste.

Wow, a Belgian I actually like a lot! Pretty smooth and subtle tasting, the flavoring was right on the money and satisfying to the last drop. Thoroughly enjoyed, cheers Rob!

Asked for something light and different, was given this brew. On tap, slice of orange. Very fruity, light, refreshing, bit of a tang.

For a lot of people, this as just as easy to get as that ’other’ Belgian White, the one with the moon on the bottle. I enjoy the citrus flavor and the color, matched by it’s drinkability, a common and great tasting White.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2004
Bottled. Hazy straw, fluffy white head, yeast, citrus, hint of coriander, hint of clove; heaven. Slice of lemon? Slice of lime? Whatever! Absolute favourite summer drink.

(bottle) Recommended to me because I asked for something with a lighter taste. A cloudy yellow color that looked to me like a cross between a wheat and a lager - neither of which I care for. The taste was actually pretty decent though. The bartender was telling me about all of these different flavor components but I didn’t really get any of them. Just a fairly plain, safe beer.

On tap at The Wlatzing Weasel London Ontario: Pale straw coloured body with medium sized white foamy head. Yeasty, citrusy Aromas. Tastes of yeast and spice (possibly nutmeg). Spice lingers in mouth, very smooth beer. Very Tasty!

I like this beer for the value. A crisp, refreshing flavor, good for lunch. It reminds me of soda, only better.

Really wasn’t overly impressed for all the hype. Poured a cloudy off-white/yellow, almost green in color. Aroma of citrus and orange. Went down very smooth, but taste was overly citrus for my liking. Still, not a bad beer, just not to my tastes.

I’ve been enjoying witbiers since I’ve been aware of their existence, and yet this is my first time sampling "the original".Color: a cloudy, almost opaque pale yellow/bright white. Head: thick, lacey, white, fluffy as a cloud, slowly tumbling down. Aroma: uplifting, light and lovely! Full of citrus, spice, lemon/orange...wide open, spacious, airy, friendly and hospitable. All that in an aroma? Yes, Indeed! A great big barrage of hops charges the palate at first, along with the gritty, grainy wheat texture. After that attack, very smooth and mellow. Light in body,and feeling, but rich in flavor, character, and soul. An utter delight every time it touches the tongue! An overall honey flavor dominates the remainder of the drink, and the delicious hops, the texture, the spice, continue to dance on the palate and provide for a richly rewarding refreshment. When other folks talk of "nothing beating a Bud Light/Corona/generic yellowy water" on a hot summer’s day, they would be wiser to wrap their lips around a glass of Hoegaarden. Wiser, happier, more improved in all aspects as a human being! What a beautiful beer!
