Sampled draught at Bulldog Pub, Zagreb, Croatia. -I don’t like that kind of beers made with coriander and orange peel

Hands down the most bland wheat beer I have had. Definately NOT the world classic everyone thinks it is. The massive carbonation looks amazing though.

It’s drinkable, but I won’t go after this one again.

A very good wheat beer...it’s got an interesting sour taste to it...but it’s good overall and goes down smooth. Great example of a Belgian beer.

For Ratebeers' sake - normally I wouldn't touch this stuff with a nine-foot long pole... Well-known hazy-yellow-with-the-greenish shine. Not huge, but persistent lacey white head. The inevitable coriandre-cum-orangepeel... Perfumed, like a fragrance for a fourteen-year old fan of the Spice girls. Surprisingly bitter for a fleeting moment at first. Then it falls flat. Less spices in the taste, not much citrus , which was the strenght of the original Celis Hoegaarden. Warming up, the coriandre gets through more and more. Light bodied, empty palate; no new aftertaste, just a bit more orange. Whyever this beer became a world classic, I'll never understand. Unless because it's even blander than the usual Pilsener?

Nice yellow cloudy color with a nice white head. Taste is citrus and spices. Overall a decent wit.

On draught at The Claddagh in Columbus, OH. It might be blasphemy to say so, but I like Blue Moon more than this. Pours a light gold color with a thin white head. Bubbly with very thin lacing. Aroma is very bready and yeasty and clean. Light-bodied and slightly sour flavor under the wheat. I could not detect much spice or citrus which usually makes Wits more tolerable to me. The finish is a little watery, with more yeast and a little banana.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2005 Very spicy and slightly sweet. I didnt like it the first time i rated it but after a refined palate this is a good beer.

Great big head of snow white bubbles. Nice lacing. Spicey aroma with a little citrus. Color is a very pale light gold and is cloudy. Flavor is very weak with some banana, citrus and cloves. Noy very strong though. Finish is light and crisp. A good version of the style but but has the look and feel of a lite beer. Worth a try but not a favorite of mine.

Hazy golden with a huge, white head.
Yes, it smells and tastes like a weissbier and it's dry and rather flat.
