UPDATED: SEP 28, 2004 The hazy yellow color is nifty. Really spicy aroma. Tastes of orange peel, pepper, smoke, and spices. Hard to pick up on the hops with all the malt and yeast-based flavors in there. Quite an interesting beer.

Pale orange, dirty color. White head. Blast of orange in the nose. Flavors of orange peel, corriander, and bready malt. Hoppy tang at the end. Always a pleasure.

Pailhead (6249) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottle: Nice white head that disappears rather quickly with slight lacing. Very strong orange aroma with hint of spices. A cloudy pale yellow in appearance. While orange in smelling more orange peel in taste. Slighty sweet. Mild aftertaste.

Surprise: all barley. Pale and hazy, big white head. Some fruit and yeast in nose and on the tongue.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Very large white head which is common. Nice pale hazy appearance. The flavor to me doesn't really jump out, but I could taste some fruit. One of the best whites I've had, white lemon also.

Notable coriander aroma over citrus that to me smells largely of orrange and faintly of grapefruit. Cloudy pale appearance that is entirely distinctive and very pleasing to look at, with a large frothy white head that dissipates quickly but that leaves heavy lacing. Bready but crisp flavor with a spicy tang that lasts. Medium-light body that is refreshingly dry. Overall, a delightful summer beer and equal to, if not greater than,the sum of its parts.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Hoegaarden white is the standard for Belgian wheat beer. Pleasant, delicious, and satisfying.

Now thats a Wit! Large white head, mediocre retention and a nice lace. Big fruity nose, citrusy, pungent. Hazy gold with a classic white background. Light body, excellent carbonation with a neat creamyness. Citrusy, light malty/bready flavors, vegetal flavors also. Sweet, but not overly. Finish is fairly dry. A joy to drink. Been a while. A classic.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
Hoegaarden is in the taditonal style of Belgian Wit Bier's. Served in the appropriate octoganal glass there is a nice shine to the hazy yellow beer. A nice froathy head sits atop the beer leaving a traditional Belgian lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. A zesty corriandor orange peel aroma dance across the sparkling head. Fruity in flavor, very refreshing.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
This beer pours a pale cloudy whiteish yellow with a gigantic white head slowly dissolving to a sheet of lace, exactly how a Witbier should. The aroma is orange, spices and wheat. Flavour is wheat, citrus, coriander, and is well malted. It's smooth, clean and refreshing. I think this beer gets a bad rap because it's so readily available and so drinkable. Good beer doesn't have to be undrinkable by your average person. Though I will admit that it doesn't hold up nearly as well out of the bottle.
