COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American version of the Belgian style. This unfiltered beer has a striking translucent, golden color with white clouds. Seemingly a contradiction in terms, it has a full body mouth-feel but is surprisingly light to drink. Topped with a hint of citrus, provided by Coriander and a secret blend of Humbolt herbs, this beer is slightly sweet and a delight to drink in any season.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Very thin, nice white beer, but what do I know, this is my first. Somewhat sweet, but balanced, nothign to tell your friends about, but some nice.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2004
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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2004
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.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2004
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.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 12, 2004
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.

TheBeerGod (5220) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Pours a hazed blond with a medium puffy white head. A closer examination reveals some particles suspended in the body. Nose is citrus, spice, hops and not much else. The tongue is met with spice and fruit. It's sweet but has a weird spice taste to it. It's a lingering orange peel and coriander mix and it sits for a bit. Kind of a perfumy taste. I wouldn't want to drink more than one of these at a sitting. Smooth mouthfeel but the finish consists of the afore mentioned lingering taste.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2004
This would be a pretty good summer brew for when you're just wanting something to drink. It's nothing special, though. Pours a cloudy golden with very litle head and no lacing. Smells very fruity, with corriander being the most prominent scent. Tastes, well, not like much of anything. It's a white, but there's little character to it. I gotta be honest, I can't even find much there to describe. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated. Drinkability scores high only because it would be quite refreshing if it were cold and you needed your thirst quenched. There's nothing objectionable about this beer at all.

fizzy yellow color, thick white head. Sweet floury taste. Floral aroma and slightly sticky palate.
