Interesting Belgian white, cloudy yellow appearance with a slight foamy head. Had hints of citrus and clove in the flavor. Very interesting, something that I'd have to try more of...

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Bottled. Lovely beer. Hazy yellow. Citrusy with a spicy touch of coriander. Yummy and refreshing. This type has become a new favourite.

It produced a thin white head that was short lived, and exhibited the expected pale yellow color with unfiltered yeast. It had a gread aroma and the spices made it very refreshing for a spring/summer day. Not a lot of body compared to other beer styles. I recommend it for warm weather refreshment.

Small white head. Cloudy and pale golden-yellow. Sweet and spicy aroma. Light to medium body. Taste is slightly sweet and spicy (with a little bite!) with a dry finish. Good.

Little carbonation. Very light colored and almost has a beige hue. I smell some witbier aromas, but they are noticeably weak. So is the flavor. I can taste the yeastiness but it is so weak. I think even Blue Moon blows this beer away. Hell, water blows this beer away.

Ah allwayz thort that one odem ho gardens was them trayler paarks where Jerry Springer's guests came from. You could imagine the show- 'You drank all my brew, so skank we're now through'. Conversely this Belgian beauty is the best start to a a day of imbibing beers from this part of the world. A very pale beer with a complex aroma of fruity esters, banana, orange peel and lemon. It starts somewhat fizzy on the palate but that soon subsides. Good lacing in the glass, my only complaint being that I just don't like to drink out of those tumblers. This is fine out of a pilsner or lager glass. Lets have one or two then move on to the next one.

on tap - the cloudy, urine-yellow appearance (and the name of the beer for that matter!) set the tone nicely for this one. overpowering aroma of something citrusy. the taste seemed to have hints of banana and clove, oh yeah and a big frickin' wheat field. given a choice, i'd rather drink MD 20/20.

Found out about this beer when visiting the Flanders countryside while living in Belgium, tasting it always brings me back to a great time in my life...Cloudy yellow and nice head, good lace, and thin-bodied. The citrus/spice combination really hits you head on. The wheat characteristic is more pronounced on th palate with just enough hoppiness to balance it out. Finishes surprising clean with minimum aftertaste. A world class witbier.

For Ratebeers' sake - normally I wouldn't touch this stuff with a nine-foot long pole... Well-known hazy-yellow-with-the-greenish shine. Not huge, but persistent lacey white head. The inevitable coriandre-cum-orangepeel... Perfumed, like a fragrance for a fourteen-year old fan of the Spice girls. Surprisingly bitter for a fleeting moment at first. Then it falls flat. Less spices in the taste, not much citrus , which was the strenght of the original Celis Hoegaarden. Warming up, the coriandre gets through more and more. Light bodied, empty palate; no new aftertaste, just a bit more orange. Whyever this beer became a world classic, I'll never understand. Unless because it's even blander than the usual Pilsener?

Huge white head as poured out of the bottle with a cloudy banana color and a spicey, almost medicinal aroma. Very clean and dry finish with nice coriander and citrus flavors. Very quaffable.
