This is the white I always come back to. Perfect balance. Celis White was my favorite, but unfortunately their history. Great beer

Hoegaarden is (in the UK at least) VERY expensive, and although it is EXCELLENT it doesn't justify the typical price tag of £3 a pint.

I first had this beer on tap and really enjoyed it. I then found it in bottles and it is now one of the beers I like to drink. I use to enjoy Blue Moon but since I have had this I don’t know if I can go back. A light refreshing enjoyable beer.

The bottled beer is not NEARLY as good at the Hoegaarden on tap. I first had Hoegaarden in a giraffe at Ballydoyle’s in Downers Grove and it had a smooth, citrus flavor and went down very well :) However, the bottled version seems to be more bitter and didn’t have the same citrus flavor. Too bad.

Refreshing Belgian white. Citrus in taste with mild notes of banana. Great for the summer, but not a top choice of mine. Still, a well brewed beer.

Touted to me to be the best of the Belgian Wits, although it is very good, it is not the best. Very nice and smooth.

on tap. pours a cloudy yellow, sweet citrus and spice aroma. crisp hop,light malt, orange and coriander taste. dry finish. this , to me, is what i think is standard fine witbier. i am glad to see this one on tap.
