mjansen1310 (125) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
0,33 liter bottle. Ah a hoegaarden. One of the first white beers I’ve ever tasted some years ago. Comes hazy white yellow with a nice white foam. Taste like an easy drinkable white beer with hints of Orange peel and koriander. Definitely a classic.

karpik (132) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Aroma of lime, coriander and orange. Straw colour, hazy with white not very tall head. Very refreshing taste of fruits with coriander. Drinkable like hell ;] Classic wit still in a good shape.

Neptune (29) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2015
An iconic witbier. Nose is not very strong, but pleasant. Fresh lemony aroma, and zesty, light taste. Moderately high carbonation. Excellent for a hot day.

paulvanpelt (383) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
Uit de fles. Bleekgeel met witte schuimkraag. Aroma van koriander, sinaasappel. Zoet en wat weeďg. Zacht. Lekker op een zonnig terras.

mathieuc (1976) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of citrus, wheat and spices. Quite the classic. Taste is lightly tart, floury and citrusy. Never too much green coriander, just enough. Body is light and carbonation moderately high. Overall a benchmark for the style and still as good as when I started when it comes to witbiers.

Golden Haze, awesome head, aromas of bread and some orange, in the mouth it starts sweet and evolve too some acidity.

freelancer12 (1) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 26, 2015 does not count
When opened beer had a nice arome that reminded me of homemade bread.When poured in it had a nice golden color. Liquid itself was quite cloudy because the beer is not filtered, wich is not a bad thing.It had a very nice white head.Taste:medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, I would recomend it to anyone.
