muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Sour aroma, golden appearance with small white head. Taste is of coriander and a hint of orange among other spices. Slightly bubbly on the palate. Overall a decent wheat beer. Not my favorite type of beer but this is drinkable.

JohnRMurdoch (3286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle from a friend. Sour banana aroma. Very anaemic cloudy pale yellow brown colour. Flavour dry sour banana and citrus fruits with a hint of spice. Smooth but not great.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Looks just like in the image, hazy yellow with nice head. Look of this beer is it’s best side. As a wheat beer this is not too awesome. Mostly watery, even thou there is that citrus one always expects with wheats, but just barely.

thirstyrabbit (1102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 13, 2010
Small bottle. I’m not sure why is this sitting high at the top 5% in overall. Very pale in looks and average tasting. It even leans on the watery and weak side. Overrated and overpriced.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2010
12oz on tap poured clear yellow with frothy white head. Aroma of wheat and little bread cut by slight citrus. Flavor is a watered down wheat with a bit of peppery orange peel. Body was weak and watery and all flavor seemed muted.

Nice citrus notes but they taste flat. Almost tasted dirty to me. Not a good mouth feel. I doubt I’ll drink another.

JanLaursen (3088) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 28, 2011
Light transparent with huge white head. Aroma of sweet bananas, Belgian yeast, wheat bread, citrus fruits. There is more banana in the taste, as well as a tart tone (from wheat) and a mouth-cleansing fizzy carbonation. Very typical Belgian wheat beer - a little industrial in its appearance. When Hoegaarden is cold and the sun is warm, it’s a refreshing drink. But it seems dull and simple before you reach the bottom of the first (small) bottle.

TATE (298) - Lubec, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a thick billowing head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Peppery beginning with a ting of metallic flavor along with more citrus flavor. Its very crisp and light and finishes dry with a hint of hop bitterness. Body is very light. Not my favorite style but appears to be well built.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 (ON TAP) I was at the Thirsty Lion in Portland, OR. This was a very weak beer. Just a notch or two under the average Wit. There is a watery taste to this beer with a light flavor of coriander
