UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Very cloudy golden color with a small but dense white head full of tiny bubbles. Fruity and spicy aroma: Orange, lemon, bread, yeast. The taste is classic, very light and refreshing with coriander and what you had smelled, a little tartness joins before it all ends. Pretty good, especially in bottle since it’s a little watery on tap.

On draught at The Claddagh in Columbus, OH. It might be blasphemy to say so, but I like Blue Moon more than this. Pours a light gold color with a thin white head. Bubbly with very thin lacing. Aroma is very bready and yeasty and clean. Light-bodied and slightly sour flavor under the wheat. I could not detect much spice or citrus which usually makes Wits more tolerable to me. The finish is a little watery, with more yeast and a little banana.

Hoegaarden is a nice wheat beer. I really can't say that there's any one thing that stands out about it, I guess it's just not got the character that I would say makes it one of the great beers that I have tried.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2003 This beer deserves more praise than it gets, yes it's interbrew but this beer is a real gem. Easily the top of the style.

Opaque, cloudy yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Very pleasing to the eye! No lacing.
Sweet and sour comes through in the aroma. Lots of yeast and bread too. Coriander really comes out as the beer approaches room temperature.
Spicy and crisp at the start. Lots of coriander in the middle. With a nice tart and spicy finish. I love Belgian wheats!
Very highly carbonated like a sparkling wine. Could use a bit more in the body and mouthfeel but theflavors more than compensate. Classic beer.

Hoegaarden is (in the UK at least) VERY expensive, and although it is EXCELLENT it doesn't justify the typical price tag of £3 a pint.

The label is true to its contents: white cloudy color. Head a little to thick to my liking. Very carbonated, very spicy. Left a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Nothing exceptional.

Nice yellow cloudy color with a nice white head. Taste is citrus and spices. Overall a decent wit.

Interesting beer. First time I had Hoegaarden, was amazed by the glass :) Thick head, strong citrus and spice aroma. Had a taste that is fairly polar - either you will really like this beer, or find it revolting. Fortunately, most like it. Orange and coriander are the dominant flavors. Much better draft than bottle, but I may have got a bad bottle. Avail at LCBO in Ontario.
