On draft, at least, it’s sort of immediately obvious why this is considered a benchmark of its style. Mellower than Allagash White, without that spicy bite, but this makes it palatable to a broader range of drinkers. A delightful-looking and tasting brew. Make sure you get it in the special glass with the lemon slice.

A nice citrus flavor, crisp and clean, though a bit more spicing than I’d have liked. It struck me as heavily carbonated, but not to the extent that it detracted from the overall impression of the beer.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Try to order one in Milano, Italy... It comes in a huge flowerpot-like glass, 0,4 liter, and has a hilaric coaster with a picture of a native Indian pronouncing it "U-gar-den. "Si scrive Hoegaarden, ma si pronuncia U-gar-den" :-D LOL

This was my first experience with Witbier, and it left quite an impression. It has a strong ginger, citric aftertaste; this beer looked more like lemonade than a customary beer. However, it’s flavor was quite enticing and its lack of bitterness left me wanting more.

Too be honest, I’m not a wit fan at all. Too sissy for my tastes. This one is so light and fruity, I was surprised the guys at the bar didn’t start hitting on me.
