A great light beer. Cloudy color, nice head, easy to drink and tasty. This is a refeshing beer to drink on a hot day.

kiwibt (55) - , NEW ZEALAND - OCT 31, 2008
Aroma of orange,corriander,cloves and yeast.Appearance is cloudy white/ash with good head retention and high carbonation. Flavour is orange,corriander,clove. Almost no hops and little malt profile,however the yeast fermentation profile makes this beer. Finishes dry with a mild acidity. Very good example of style.

MexiFinn (54) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 I must of originally had a bad Vegas sun-burned re-re-fridgerated 6-pack, tried it again, as it looks like everyone loves this stuff.... and this stuff is really, really pretty sweet, ginger-bread house taste and all... seriously, if want something completely different... this is it.

GreenWall (54) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2008
UPDATED: APR 30, 2009 Pours very cloudy, straw-coloured and milky, with a slick fading white head. Strong wheat twang, yeasty, coriander, spicy phenolics. Tart and prickly, full-bodied and round, slightly citrusy. Mild and smooth, but definitely not boring. Refreshing if a bit watery - best tap selection at a lot of bars.

The pour is pale yellow, almost lemonade looking, with light, white foam. Wheaty, sweet aroma. Crisp citrus flavor. Very lite and smooth. Im not a big fan of wheat beers, but this is very refreshing.

Heatwaves (54) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 18, 2005
I was sincerely disappointed with this beer. I’m a big fan of Blue Moon’s Witbier and since Hoegaarden had a much higher rating, I was looking forward to try it. It came up so short, that I gave away the other five beers in the pack. It has a very light aroma that borders on a cross between lemon and medicine. The taste was somewhat sharp with a very anticeptic aftertaste. I felt as if I was drinking a Listerine Light. The color was cloudy which wouldn’t have been a bad thing if the taste was more appealing, but with this bitter, uninviting beer it reminded me more of a beer after it passes through the system. Not recommended.

Poured with medium sized, very creamy white head. Head was mostly diminishing and exhibited some nice lacing. Color is light hazy yellow, almost looks like lemonade. Nose is of wheat, coriander, and citrus. Initial flavor is lightly sweet and citrusy, with finish being lightly dry and leaving a nice coriander/clove type of spicy taste that hangs around for quite some time. This is an excellent beer. I love it.

Very good beer, has a distinct taste that you will love or hate. Worth a try if you like white beers.
