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.

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

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.

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.

Light yellow with a nice thin yet fluffy head which stays around for a while. Extremely refreshing citrus nose. The taste follows the nose starting with deliciously creamy and delicate citrus flavors which prelude delicious spice in the form of cloves.Very light and refreshing yet with enough character to maintain interest.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2015 Bière blanche (de froment) belge. De fermentation haute, légère en alcool, non filtrée, cette bière développe au nez des notes terreuse (levure), d’agrumes, de citron vert, de biscuit au beurre, d’épices, de basilic frais et autres herbes. Mais pas cet arôme de banane typique dans les blanches allemandes. Très pétillante, au corps fin et léger, elle est plutôt crémeuse et douce. C’est le malt et les levures qui dominent ici. De couleur jaune clair, trouble, et à la mousse très généreuse et persistante, elle est pour moi plus belle à regarder qu’à boire. Mais, à l’apéro, elle reste tout de même très agréable et légère.

Orange sweet and fruity tasting. Pale in colour. Very lilttle bitterness and easy drinking. Alot of character compared to the stuff I usually drink (macro). Quite enjoyable

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Tap. Nice aroma. I enjoy wheat beers in the summertime but I was a bit disappointed with this one. The flavor was a bit light. Some nutmeggy spiciness but I probably wouldn’t buy it again. A lot of hype and not a lot of flavor.

Nice basic belgium white. Low on the citrus end and higher on the spices. I like bc most beligums tend to overdo citirus. Nice carbonation on tap. Overall decent mainstream beer
