bottle: pours a cloudy light straw colour with a smaller than expected head.....citrus (mostly lemony), banana, some clove, and wheat malt detectable in the aroma......slight sourness with a mild bitterness to the finish.....light body with lively carbonation.......refreshing

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.

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.

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.

Piwo barwy słomkowej, mętne. Piana biała, dość obfita, drobna, trochę się utrzymuje, lacing znikomy. W aromacie banan, goździki, coś jak kolendra, trochę cytrusów. Za to wychodzą one dużo lepiej w smaku, dochodzi do nich słodowość i ponownie lekka nuta kolendry. Nasycenie wysokie, co w połączeniu ze smakiem daje orzeźwiający efekt, dobry na cieplejsze dni.

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.

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.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2005
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
