My favorite Belgian white. Fell in love with it in Amsterdam and luckily it did not need to be a long distance relationship when I got back to the states. It remains high on my drinkable list. Refreshing and goes well with most. Perhaps it is my time in Amsterdam, but I think it goes best with waffle fries dipped in mayo...

Very fresh taste, perfect on a hot summer day. Citrus aromas, combined with a smooth slightly malty taste. The finish is outstanding, with several fresh tastes combined. Appearance is not perfect due to a lack of foam. However, aroma is very good and taste as well. Hard to find a Belgian style witbier this good.

Zesty, fruity, spicey aroma matches the flavours that follow. The benchmark Belgian white/wheat beer - and deservedly so.

Beardbeerman (215) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a lemonade colored foggy robe having some vivid effervescence. The head is at first foamy and then stays like a thin creamy barrier. You can get the orange zest from the nose that makes it fresh and surprising and wheat of course adding some corpus. I couldn’t really find the coriander that I think gets lost in all that powerful bitterness leaving the back of the tongue overwhelmed. The malt and orange zest are very refreshing but I was dissapointed by its lack of spice to balance out the acidic sour side of that ale. Not a real fan of whites and from my point of view, this one won’t make me become one.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 Hoegaarden is like first love: tender, soft, poetical. But unlike the first love this beer also has wonderful citrus aroma and adorable head. And it will never be against watching football together.

Teran (98) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Fluorescent cloudy pale yellow; wheat, citrus mandarine. Best Belgian touch in wheat beer. That is why this is probably one of the best widely known wheat beers in the world. Ideal for hot summer days, but now on my hemisphere is cold winter weather – but I can drink it without problems.
