Hazy pale yellow with a big white head. Beautiful when poured into the proper glass. Aroma is sweet fruity, yeasty, citrus and coriander. Flavor is moderate sweet. The finish is light acidic and sweet. Very refreshing and fantastic on a hot summer day. 060211

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 I’ve tasted this gem many times before; the first was actually in Belgium. Hoegaarden is crisp, smooth and delicious. I had a glass yesterday at brunch. The color is very light; the head is quite thick; and the aroma is citrusy and refreshing. The taste is similaly fruity, though to a lesser degree.

Pleasant Wit. Sweet but not cloying. Much better as it warms up.

A: The pour is an extremely pale yellow color with an intense haze to it. The head is medium in size and white in color. S: Big time coriander aroma to this beer. The wheat and other malts provide a moderate amount of sweetness to the nose, and there is a minimal citrus note. T: Again, a heavy hand on the spice component. Lots of coriander and wheat with a distinct lemony tartness. Where am I, BJ’s? M: The body is quite light and the carbonation is quite high and lively. D: Another one of those really well known beers that everybody sort of has to try somewhere along the way. I haven’t had this beer for a long time, but I did not find it did much for me on this occasion.

Aroma of yeast, citrus, and old fashioned linoleum adhesive (just a hint). Or maybe it’s just more yeast. Hazy light gold color with a large white head that went away, leaving bits of lace. Starts with strong citrus oil, and coriander. Suggestions of banana. Something of clove came next. Medium to full mouthfeel. The long finish is light clove mouthcoat and a little bitter, very little. Good ale. Clean and refreshing.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

50 cl Draft in original giant glass. Pours a hazy golden white color with a very thin white head. Great WitBier.

Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Light, cloudy yellow beer with a very white head. Fruity, slightly smoked aroma, some spice, some lemon. Sweet and easy-to-drink with a hint of tartness.

A wonderful white. Another example that even though you’re ’big’ doesn’t mean your beer sucks. A powerful fruity aroma with a very nice (white), though fast dissappearing head. The taste is not quite powerful enough, but has a banana flavour and a softness that even few wheat beers are blessed with.

on tap @House of Brews NY-pours a white head that laces and cloudy, murky straw color. Aroma is banana, clove, some wheat. Taste is banana, clove, wheat, secondary spice (saaz?) hops. Smooth. OK effervescence.
