Good beer, but a little bit of a flat taste. I’ve allways liked this one, especially when the weather is hot. I guess that this beer should be served very cold, about 5 degrees Celsius, to be enjoyed at its most.

Good taste, especially floating a lemon in it. Not as harsh as some other wheat beers.

The most standard and available wheat beer, but by no means the best. Slightly lacking in flavour. Not bad though.

Nice well balanced flavor. Not too citrusy like many others but shouldn’t be for the price.

The worst thing about this beer was the appearance--lemonade-looking with a filmy head. However, this beer is certainly a quality brew--having a spiced aroma, light body, nicely spiced and refreshing flavor. A good witbier for any occassion.

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.
