Bottle, 33cl. Hmmm, what can i say about this beer that hasnít already been said? This is a wonderful beer! All macrobrews should have a beer as good as this one. Very pale and hazy yellow with a good yet collapsing white head. Very characterist aroma, with notes of citrus and coriander. Flavour is very refreshing, fruity and yeasty and with some bitterness in the end. Perfect balance between the sour notes from the wheat and the sweetness from the fruits. This one is a must!

This one pours cloudy with a muted yellow body and a thin white head. It has a hoppy, fruity aroma with a suggestion of strawberries. The flavor is mellow with a slightly spicy finish.

Smooth all the way down. This beer is smooth, but filling, altough light at the same time. A well-rounded beer with a subtle, but nice taste. I quite enjoyed it.

Not sure if I can rationalize the 88% that Hoegaarden has on this website, but it is a very smooth light Belgian beer. Very drinkable.

iím literally on my knees in front of this beer. Iíd probably fight anyone that said anything bad about it. This is the affinity i share with this amazing witbier. Nostalgic nights in the boaters (jazz on a sunday) Itís 3.50 a pint mate...no worries. Any lemon? donít be ridiculous. A herbal sensation with a creamy sourness that basically stands up in a crowd and says im top dog. Yes, iíve had better beers since but none of them will ever give me as much pleasure as this once did. i can only compare it to taking acid for the first time. Parsnip, grass and all the good things i like. a flavour onslaught as the carbonation dissipates. Not the prettiest of beers but my lord does it taste great. This beer is your friend and wonít let you down. Iím tempted to give it top marks just out of sheer respect.

Refreshing and easy to drink. Very nice taste of citrus, wheat and grass. This beer has a nice natural feeling.

Color: very pale - almost sand like - brown Nose: floral coriander and wheat with a hint of fertilizer Taste: Initially taste wheat with a light spice and acidity, on the mid-palate the coriander comes out and balances with the wheat, on the finish the wheat fades and a slightly chemical like acidity accents the coriander Mouthfeel: Very smooth and yet not too light - it is very close to earning the velvety description that wines get lol, it walks the fine line between having substance yet not being too heavy Comments: Very good and complex light beer, integrates well and flows smoothly from start to finish on palette, also common and accesible at most quality places, well worth the money by far and would also be good for the women (and not so manly men :p) who donít drink heavy beers

Light hazy color. Strong spice particularly clove. A bit citrus and tart. Enjoy it.

Lots of bubble. Clear gold color. It is spicy in aroma. Sweet like honey and some kind of fruit. I canít really tell what it is. Great beer.
