I could never get into this one. Looks pretty in the tumbler. Like lemonade with lots of backwash. Smells like chemical cleaner, but not in a bad way. Flavors are lemony, fizzy and transparent, very bland and transparent. Not the best Wit. Man back in the day the Celis White was the king of the land, much better than this one. Now they both suck. grat

Cloudy yellow colour (reminds a lemonade), with nice white head. Very sweet, I think. Good aroma with citrus notes. It’s a very refreshing beer, excellent for summer time.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 Bottled. Yellow cloudy, big white head. Citric aroma with notes of yeast and wheat. Citric sweet barley in taste. Sweet aftertaste.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 Hoegaarden pours a sickly clouded yellow colour, lightly carbonated appearance witha minimal brilliant white head. The nose holds the quintessential notes of orange peel and coriander with some citrus anda light spicing beneath, which threaten further interest beyond the standard whitbeer , but provide nothing but a slight metallic edge. Tastes mirror the aromas found originally but also provides light spicing in the refreshing whitbeer finish, the only part of this beer which really proves itself. A very standard whitbier although it is refreshing , if you have a penchant for this type of beer drink it cool in the summer.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Tasted this one years back, but it seems to have been ’mass market’ modernised now, as it didn’t appear to be the same as it once was!. Tasted from the bottle and poured into its own stumpy tumbler. Pours an opaque pale ’wheat’ yellow, with a short dense and creamy head. Aromas of spicy coriander, fell second to a candy sugar sweetness that was cloying prior to even the first sip. In the mouth, a smooth, lightly carbonated, pasty and yeasty palate revealed light citric zest and candy sugar sweetness, cloying and gluggy, with no lactic yeast and wheat hit or spicy balance. Still, all else aside, it is oddly sessionable, though cloyingly sweet and not what I remember it as....

Hazy, pale golden color, small white head. Aroma of lemon, pepper, with maybe some cloves. Flavor is light and refreshing, with some lemon enhanced by a light spiciness. Less spicy than many whites, making this a nice brew for a hot day.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2005 a mes rate: ok we have all tried this one. it was what got me started and still holds a special place in my heart. i am not going to waste time talking about citrus and vanilla as you have all heard that before too. not what it was when i first tried it some years ago now. i am not going for all this frosted glass, slice of lime and herbs crap either. smacks a bit of interbrew these days but still hits the spot and if the pumps are looked after well still a good beer garden scoop for a sunny day

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.

I really enjoyed this one, served in a huge glass, takes awhile to drink, great taste, can taste the orange, with a bit of sweetness, great color, a bit white and amber combined, interesting appearance

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 This was one of those beers that got me into good beers so i have a slightly weak spot for it. Particularly refreshing anmd citrus, corriander flavour domminates everything. I always like this and today it is probably the best day scotland will ever have so a good day to have such a thing. Rerate: I feel that this has got maltier and has lost something.
