Aroma of clove, coriander and citrus? A clear, very pale, yellow color. The white head left quickly. Flavor goes quickly through clover, coriander and finally, I think, the orange appears, with yeast always somewhat present. Very nice. A bit less astringent than some Belgians of the style. Extremely pleasant. Given the moderate alcohol it could be consumed in relative quantity. Especially in summer around pool. Much more sensible choice than Corona.

millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head and no lacing. Heavily spiced aroma, featuring clove and coriander. The spices tend to dominate the flavor a bit with some noticable citrus and wheat. A solid Belgian white but the spices could be toned down a bit.

Almost $9 for six. Pale white with carbo and unfiltered "Yup thats yeast" is written all over this beer. Good. Not great, but very good.

Draft. Belgian Style Wheat/white ale. Unfiltered and spcided nicely with coriander and Curacao orange peel. Pretty tastey, not the best Belgian, but definitly a good brew.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Pint @ Allen Street Hardware. Very similar to Hoegaarden but not as good. Pale unfiltered yellow. Slight citrus presence. Im usually a fan of Belgian whites but this really doesnt do much for me.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Draft. Very pale straw color with a small white head. Sweet, citrusy aroma with a weak, dry taste. Lacks flavor. Not bad but there are a handful of other wheat beers Id rather have instead.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2007
Light yellow colored, cloudy appearance. Little white head. Orange, spices, yeast and some lemony sourness in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is richer with orange, spices and yeast, crispy carbonation. Aftertaste is good with lemony yeast. One dimensional, basic witbier.

oh6gdx (26390) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2007
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is wheat and spices. Flavour is smooth wheat and some slight spicyness. Clean but quite boring. Lacks something from what the Belgians have.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a lightly hazed straw color - that shows bright gold where it catches the light. The glass I used was too small to pour the whole bottle in. After a bit, I was able to stir up the yeast and dump the remaining beer - producing a much hazier straw color that refuses to catch the light. A quarter inch of white suds sticks around for quite a while. Decent lacing. Tangy wheat and a hint of lemon in the aroma. Tasty with both sweet and dry tangy wheat malt, prominent coriander, and an orange zestiness. Initial sips (pre-swirl and dump) provided no yeast flavors, but afterwards they sure did. Light to medium body, light but lively carbonation. True to style, refreshing and drinkable.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2007
Bottle @ American Week, Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Not very strong aroma, smells like witbier and soap. Foam looks like dishwashing liquid. Pale like a lager. Taste a bit soap, very thin overall. No finish. A pure copy of Hoegaarden and a poor one at that.
