Poured from a bottle into a Belgium "satan" glass. It almost looked white during the pour, but then as it settled down it became a light yellow color but still not transparent. An inch and a half head of bigger foam bubbles formed. After a couple minutes the head broke down to just some lace around the edge. It smells like a toned down wiezenbier. Ripe banana, peach and a hint of lemon. Very noticeable but by no means overpowering. Tastes almost like it smells. But there is a sparkling water taste, which does not really have a taste to it. Moderate Carbonation, crisp, light and refreshing. A nice drink for the hot days. Subtle flavors. It is not a personal favorite of mine, but it is supposedly the "original Belgian Witbier". How can you not like the original?

330ml bottle. Pale cloudy yellow colour with a big white head. Lovely spicy citrus aroma with coriander and wheat. Taste is smooth, citric (orange?), wheat, and mildly spicy with coriander, maybe a hint of banana. Smooth and refreshing. First Witbier I ever tried, it remains one of my favourites. 24th April 2013.

Light yellow color, medium to strong head. Notes of banana, citrus, and flower in aroma. Tastes of banana, biscuits, and the slight note of bitter orange peel and coriander as per the style. Not the most interesting, but a refreshing intoduction ot belgian wit.

Hoegaarden is a classic Witbier, defining the style. The pour is very translucent, pale yellow, and slightly cloudy. A neat white head forms with a pleasant effervescence, carrying aromas of light but fragrant spice. The taste is light, crisp, mild, tangy, slightly floral, and gently spiced. The finish carries the spice into the palate and thoroughly refreshes. An excellent session brew.

MartR (146) - Aespa, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2015
Pours hazy golden with lots of yeasty spices in the air. Starts off with a light mouthfeel followed by different spicy notes. Ends dry with sweet oranges notes. To me a classical and tasty Witbier.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 Bubblegum, light aniseed, medicine aromas. Mild taste, low bitterness, easy to drink but too complex to session.

Aroma maravilhoso de laranja e especiarias, porém no sabor é um pouco seca demais. Refrescante.
