Old favorite. When poured properly you get a large, lingering, frothy head over pale yellow ale. Great nose of yeast, citrus, and grass(?). Very refreshing, yet spicy aswell. Complex but still thrist quenching. Extra points for availability.

commonmac (895) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2016
UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Bottle at Kitty Kat Klub on the U of M campus before Frightened Rabbit show at Varsity. Cloudy yellow/orange appearance. Aroma has wheaty characteristics with some light coriander and citrus. Taste is pretty mild with a citrus quality running throughout. Refreshing in general. Bready characteristics and flavor present. Easy to drink. One of the first "go-to" beers I can remember and still tastes very approachable. People should steer towards this instead of Blue Moon for this style.

AdolfoCC (79) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 21, 2016
Servida en vaso Hoegaarden. APARIENCIA: de color pajizo, se observa ligeramente turbia y moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca de buena retención, de burbuja muy compacta. AROMA: notas a pan y plátano del trigo es lo que predomina, además de ligeras notas cítricas y algo de dulzor. SABOR: el paladar sigue al aroma; notas a pan y plátano del trigo, ligero dulzor atrás de eso, notas cítricas muy leves y cierto gusto a agua mineral; el retrogusto queda con un amargor muy ligero, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, carbonatación media alta y que se siente el crispar en lengua. RESUMEN: una buena cerbeza refrescante y ligera de acuerdo al estilo.

PabloZibi (20) - Radom, POLAND - APR 15, 2016
750 ml bottle. Aroma of carnation (pol.goździki) and very weak of orange peel. Very nice, classical appearance, unfortunately head is impermanent. Good taste, very refreshing. Very fine bitterness (as for witbier). Nice but short aftertaste. Classical representative of a style, definitely must try for every beer-geek.

Jultsu (552) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - APR 15, 2016
750ml pullo, BBE 20.09.2016. Massiivinen saippuamainen vaahto, kirkkaan kuulas lagerin väri. Pieneen lasiin kaadettuna ensin alkuun hyvin laimean haalea, raa’an vehnäinen maku. Lisää kaadettuna alkaa suutuntuma tasapainottumaan. Raikkaahko yläpää joskin hivenen tunkkainen alapää jälkifiiliksenä, Pientä mausteisuutta. Tasapainoinen ja maukas kokonaisuus.
