3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium gold pour with a light head and spotty lacing. Aromas of honey bubblegum, candi, hops and some yeast. Much of the same is found in the flavor as well, though the hops come out more with limon and a bit of floral flavors. Caramel and bread. Nicely balanced palate with a medium body that finishes with floral hops. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, dirty looking, yellow pour with a frothy, sticky white head; thin lacing. The aroma is slighty buttery and yeasty with a bit of a citrus back end to it. Decent creamy mouthfeel. Flavor lacks that zesty tang usually associated with witbiers, though - do not pick up the coriander that is mentioned. The yeast is quite prominent and makes this one rather bland.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lousy label, hazy mashed banana colored brew with a big insulation-style head. There were off, musky smelling yeast and citrus fruit tones to the aroma. I usually like wits, but this left a lot to be desired. Sweet, flat, very one-dimensional. Mouth was quite watery. Citrus finish with some vanilla. Very disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden color with white head. A very sweet flavor with some interesting spices in the back and aftertaste. Hoegaarden still takes it to school, but a good beer nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light murky yellow with a decent white head. Mild orange and lemon nose, not detecting any coriander. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy, thicker than expected, a light bubbly and slightly zesty citrus, and overall just very sweet. A decent wit.

Wonderful light color unfiltered beer. Very smooth to the taste then a fruity finish. Strongly suggest with a good meal.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice clear golden color,small white head that faded fast but left a small lace behind.The aroma was wheat and fruity and almost cereal like with a nice sweet smell coming from it as well,and a decent lemony appearance.The taste was quite flavorful with a decent wheat and fruit presence mild spice upfront and very sweet.The after taste is sweet and fruity with a mild fruit finish.I don't know,i feel this brew is a little under rated.Yes it's pretty sweet but it does make a nice smooth drinking brew and i feel would fit nicely into a hot day drinker.Well worth trying if you can find it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer formed a medium sized white head that was creamy and smooth with fine-small sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was somewhat hazy and carbonated with a yellow hue. The nose consisted of spices, citrus and hops. The flavor was sweet, fruity and spicy. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a light textured beer in my opinion with some lacing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left bshind a fair lace and a carbonated hazy yeasty yellow light orange colored body. The aroma was floral and plesant while the mouth feel was tingly and smooth from start to finish. The flavor was fruity with banana malt notes.
