From 12oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joeís about $1.25 for bottle

Aroma: sweet, oranges, banana

Appearance: golden, cloudy, white head

Taste: light sweet, light bitter

Palate: light, thin, average carbonation

Overall: Feels very thin/watery to very light bodied to me. Definitely easy to drink. The orange is present, but I canít taste or smell the coriander. Nice dry finish, really like the dry finish. A little more banana aroma than I thought it should have. Looking for a bit more body. Not tasting the ísourí taste, but the body/thin is throwing me off quite a bit.

Dobry witbier. W tym piwie podoba mi się to, że słodowość pszeniczna jest dobrze wyczuwalna. Wiele witůw jej nie ma - dla mnie duży plus dla tego piwa właśnie za to.

750ml bottle pours a hazy light yellow with a good, white, lasting head. Nose is mild yeast, fresh citrus and zingy, gingery spice.taste follows, mild oranges, slight lemon kick and a bit of rounded, mild spice. Mouth feel is great, quite watery but really refreshing and the flavours carry all the way through. Long fruity finish with a nice touch of spicey warmth. Wow, not had this in a while and it is better than I remember.

Pours straw colour with no head. Hazy stucture, fast rising bubbles-high carbonation. Aroma without presence of alcohol, only fruity-floral aroma, with notes of bread and pine. Similar is taste: without presence of alcohol, little citrusy, tropical...hop bitterness is medium. Hop bitterness is well balanced with malt sweetness; malt sweetness, with notes of wheat, is medium. Body is dry, bitterness is low-medium, also bitterness in finish. Drinkable and appropriate beer for its style.

A class act. Looks great - cloudy with a snowy white head. Low carbonation, easy to drink and very smooth. As easy to session as it is to savour the flavour. A hit of fruit, then some bitterness. Although fruity, itís like the Erdinger Weissbrau type beers in that the fruit is not overpowering and they deliver it in an almonst mellow way, unlike English ales which can be much less refined with the delivery of fruity flavours. Very well balanced between fruitiness and bitterness. Almost a smoky taste to it too. I much prefer this to English type ales. If you donít really like English type ales, donít be put off trying this, as itís very different.

Batavi (125) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
6 flessen gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in origineel zeshoekig Hoegaarden glas. Fraai lichtgeel troebel bier met compacte witte schuimkraag die zich vrij snel terugtrekt. Aroma's van Belgische gist, graan, citrus en koriander. De smaak volgt de geur precies, frisse mouten, Belgische gist, sinaasappel en koriander. De afdronk is meer kruidig dan hoppig. Ook weer zo'n klassiek Belgisch bier, dat ik al jaren drink. Voor mij is de Hoegaarden wit nog steeds het beste witbier wat ik tot nu toe heb geproefd, zeer geschikt voor een warme zomerdag. Dorstlessend, licht fris kruidig en perfect gebalanceerd. Wel koud drinken, rond de 3 graden, drinkt dan extreem makkelijk weg.
