3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the lightest colored beers I've seen. Not a great smell or head. Good lacing. Sour without much flavor and no hops.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Maybe this beer came through for me in a pinch, or something, but it kind of knocked my socks off. I had been traipsing around the hell that is Ikea on Sunday, wandered into an ugly crowded bar and wasn't expecting anything near this good. So refreshing so perfect. Quite strong, but isn't that what you need when you just want to forget the furniture with umlots and the screaming children?
Tried another one later in the day and it wasn't quite as good, but then it's refreshment impact would have to be lessened. Still a crisp, tasty witbier that I will seek out again.

On tap in .5 liter glass. Poured pretty clear for an unfiltered wheat beer with a solid head that stuck around till the last. Aroma of lemon and wheat and some aspects of cloves, but no banana flavor. Lacking in overall mouth flavor due to too cold a pour.

Not a huge fan of wheat beers but this one has me thinking differently. Wonderfully awesome. Better when temps are above 40 degrees out. =)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a weizen glass. Best by date is 23/03/11. One and a half inches of frothy, white head initially forms but quickly settles. No lacing. Color is cloudy, pale yellow, like lemonade almost. Wheat, yeast and notes of citrus and honey on the nose. Sweet floral characteristics as well. The palate shows the same, but with a hint of coriander and a light yeasty finish. Very light bodied with nice carbonation. Very easy to drink. A great session/summer beer.

Hoegaarden is cloudy and pours a pale yellow color. A delightful foamy head is easily produced when pouring from the bottle. An intense citrus smell greets the senses as a sip is taken. The flavor is also citrusy and sweet with lemon, orange peel and a hint of pineapple. The body is full and creamy. Some fizziness is a welcome element to counter some of the sweetness. Compared to many other commonly available wheat beers, Hoegaarden provides a little extra goodness that is sure to be enjoyed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mętne, o slomkowym kolorze. Piana biala, gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa. W zapachu cytryna, skórka pomarańczy, chleba, banan, kolendra, trawa, na końcu minimalnie wyczuwalna końska derka. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie: banan, cytryna, pomarańcza, kolendra i trawa. Na finishu lekka goryczka. Wysycenie małe. Rewelacyjne na upały, przepyszne piwo.

Pours a very pale hazy gold. Grassy nose. Citrus note from orange peel is detectable, but subtle. Same with the coriander. I’m ambivalent about this one....

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tastes like lotion, and is extraordinarily expensive. Looks nice at least, with a nice, consistent head and beautiful white body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy lemon lemon yellow pour. There is a beautiful white head on this beer. Some citrus taste as well as aroma but there is a mellow buttery biscuit taste at the finish that was unpleasant on my first bottle. Now, several nights later, the biscuit butteriness is not as pronounced or I am beginning to like it.
