Pours a cloudy pale yellow, with a small white head. The scent is sweet and spicy, leading one to sip. The taste is a crisp wheat bite, with a finish of spice. A decent beer, and one that is easy to find.

My first Hoegaarden in 6 years! A cloudy yellow appearance with no head but a pleasant aroma of lemon, orange, wheat and coriander. Taste is dry and fragrant and nicely complex. Pleased I gave this another go.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Pale, cloudy yellow colour, with a white head. I definitely got the orange on the nose, the coriander not so much. Furthermore an aroma of lime and ginger. Refreshing taste of... what? I’m not sure. Maybe lime again. For sure it’s slightly sour and neither bitter nor sweet, nor bitter-sweet either. Slightly... tasteless probably describes it best. What struck me about this beer was its very watery palate. Not really sure what all the fuss is about, although it is easily drinkable and nice enough for relaxing on a hot summer day, I suppose.

12 oz bottle. A hazy straw color, no head to speak of. The color of lemon juice. Aroma is lemon, orange, sugar, and spices. Sweet and sour citrus, coriander, cloves, and hay. A little carbonation, clean finish.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint jug. A: Pours a cloudy yellow to white color with a nice white creamy head which does not disappears totally and leaves many lacings in the glass S: Smell is a must! Point of strength. Complex. Very spicy. Coriander, citrus orange zest, vanilla, yeasts (ohhh yeah, damn good Belgium yeasts!), sweet grains, fruity esters and flowery hops T: Complex as the nose. Very spicy beer. Notes of coriander (and perhaps some cinnamon), orange zest, vanilla, yeasts, fruity esters and sweet grains. Flowery hops in the end. Rich combination, the result is a delicious and completely refreshing beer M: Medium and creamy body and medium carbonation. Perfect and balanced O: Classic Belgium Witbier. The spicy and citrus smell and palate makes it a delicious and refreshing option for hot summer days... [ BA Review @ 9/3/2010 ]

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Witbier classic from Belgium, light pineapple and peach coloured with thick white foam. Smells summerly of yeasts, coriander and lemon; tastes of wheat beer (obviously), banana, some pineapple and coriander.

Bière agréable et désaltérante quand on a soif, très soif.Quand on la boit fraîche, très fraîche.Les arômes de clou de girofle et d’agrumes sont tellement marqués qu’ils paraissent artificiels (et c’est possible qu’ils le soient en partie).Par conséquent je qualifierais cette bière de racoleuse.Mais attention ! elle est loin d’être mauvaise (bue fraîche, très fraîche).

Very smooth and has a lot of flavour for one of the biggest names in the style. Best enjoyed in the vessel that North Americans refer to as the big ho.
