OK, may not the right sort of beer to rate after a Rochefort but I did clear my palate with a large serve of Belgian fries (and Salad of course). The bottle said ’aromaticised with herbs’ but I got nothing except a faint yeast. Cloudy passion fruit drink colour, small to tiny head that faded to nothing. The flavour was a bit of sweetness and a faint citrus tang but only to the front and middle of the tongue. Body thin and a bland watery finish - I can’t see why this one rates as high as it does. While in Belgium its back to the Rocheforts.

Nice Belgian Wheat. Flavors a little too sharp for me. I prefer the Sam Adams Weiss Bier. Sue me, i’m an American...

5/05: bottle. A snowy, fluffy moderate head tops the glowing light cloudy yellow-gold body...dried orange and lemon, coriander and white pepper keep the nostrils tingling...the body is clean a bright, lemony and refreshing, but with little to maintain the hard-core taster’s interest...a solid middle-of-the-road Wit, certainly nothing to sneeze at for the Belgian-deprived but also nothing to get carried away with...

UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 A bit of a dissapointment. I remembered Hoegaarden differently. Have not had one for a while. Flat, very flat. Might be the occassion. It will get plenty of opportunity for a re-rating.

Great beer for the summers. Very bitter, i tasted something of lemon and honey.

Very nice, one of my favourite beers, nice with a slice of lemon, but why is it so damn expensive???

Very refreshing witbier, citrus and yeast aroma, pleasant flavour, subtle aftertaste.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2002
It has got in its aroma and flavour hints of orange and grapefruit. The beer is almost clear with a slight haze, and a good sized head. For my first wheat beer it was OK but I was expecting something more special than what I got.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2002
A small creamy head and a cloudy gold colour. Soft carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel, hints of orange, yeasty and refreshing. I’d go one again.
