One of my favorite beers. Poured from a bottle it has a lovely one finger head. The beer is a hazy straw like colour that is just bursting full of aroma and taste. The aroma and taste are both full of cirtus notes notes that would make this beer really refreshing if chilled down in the warmer months.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Hoegaarden is great because it?s a beer unto itself. There?s little else like it. A cloudy, light gold wheat beer with a ferocious head. Tastes sweet, packed with light orange but there?s some satisfying creaminess there too. It doesn?t rate as an all time great, and here in the U.K it can be overpriced on tap, but it?s complex, refreshing and never disappointing.

Nice from bottle but even nicer on tap, very refreshing and the orange and spice come through well with being too strong

Bottle. Pours very light yellow. Somewhat cloudy with a completely diminishing white head. Nose is lemon, orange, coriander, and wheat. Taste is light citrus with sublte spices. Medium body has a nice chewiness to it. Crisp mouthfeel and a short finish. Very refreshing, but I could use a bit more in the flavor.

Although it looks kinda scary it tastes great. It has a good bready yeast smell to it as well.

Very light with white head, cloudy with a bunch of crap floating in it. Sweet, hoppy aroma. A little salty and bitter, with a sweet aftertaste. A hint of pine in the taste, but not great on the palate. It’s about average in my book.

750 ml bottle into a hoegaarden glass. Can be quite volatile, the white head must be tamed with a slow, controlled pour. The beer is a light golden/straw colour; cloudy, but still possible to see straight through. Aroma of citrus lemon and earthy herbs. Taste is pleasantly sweet, with a mild bitter edge. It is quite tingly on the palate with carbonation being plentiful. Very refreshing and widely available.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Very nice. Very light and crisp. I could drink a million of these. God bless Belgium. Cloudy, almost white pour. Spicy/citrus aroma and taste. The quintessential wit.

Pale gold, lots of carbonation. Great, refreshing flavor of wheat and hints of spice and citrus to add some tingle. My favorite beers are hefeweizens, and as this is a close derivative, I really embraced it.
