UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 The original white ale, and probably the best. A sensational appearance and aroma. The palate and taste are also top notch. If you can find this beer on draft, you will be hooked! Not bad from a bottle either...but pour into a pint glass.

Mild yeasty aroma with light wheat notes. Pours a very pale very cloudy yellow with a tight big white head. Subtle sour notes with light wit beer flavors. Very drinkable. I like it.

330ml bottle. Pale cloudy yellow colour with a big white head. Lovely spicy citrus aroma with coriander and wheat. Taste is smooth, citric (orange?), wheat, and mildly spicy with coriander, maybe a hint of banana. Smooth and refreshing. First Witbier I ever tried, it remains one of my favourites. 24th April 2013.

Light yellow color, medium to strong head. Notes of banana, citrus, and flower in aroma. Tastes of banana, biscuits, and the slight note of bitter orange peel and coriander as per the style. Not the most interesting, but a refreshing intoduction ot belgian wit.

Hoegaarden is a classic Witbier, defining the style. The pour is very translucent, pale yellow, and slightly cloudy. A neat white head forms with a pleasant effervescence, carrying aromas of light but fragrant spice. The taste is light, crisp, mild, tangy, slightly floral, and gently spiced. The finish carries the spice into the palate and thoroughly refreshes. An excellent session brew.

MartR (146) - Aespa, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2015
Pours hazy golden with lots of yeasty spices in the air. Starts off with a light mouthfeel followed by different spicy notes. Ends dry with sweet oranges notes. To me a classical and tasty Witbier.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 Bubblegum, light aniseed, medicine aromas. Mild taste, low bitterness, easy to drink but too complex to session.
