I just really like this beer even though at the time of first tasting it was cold outside, night time and in the depths of winter. Not the kind of beer to be drunk in that season but eminently drinkable all the same. Roll on summer to match the aromatic flowery wheat malt nose and fluffy fresh head of this classic Belgian wheat beer. cab (866) - DENMARK - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. A beer you can drink again and again and on a hot sommerday it keep´s you satisfied. kiwinhants (6) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 3, 2006 does not count
330ml bottle chilled slightly in fridge. Poured with a nice fluffy white head and suitably golden and cloudy in the glass. Looked good enough to drink! Aroma not as strong as I expected, but usual Hoegaarden stuff. Pretty easy on the palate with a little lingering bitterness in the finish but nothing amazingly complex. Overall enjoyable, but doesn’t leave me screaming for more. Zeswaft (1785) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2006

Hazy golden color with a large foamy white head. Floral and honey aromas. Sweet malt and spicey flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel and the alcohol is well hidden. Very good Tranquillity (2563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2009 It looks like honey, smells like honey and flowers. So far so good. But this is one of my biggest beer-related disappointments, after noticing that beer gives a hangover. The taste is foul and bitter, like a too young wine. The finish might be good and sweet, points for that, but the aftertaste is pure horror. Only alcohol. Maybe something wrong with this bottle..? It says to serve it at 5-6 degrees, which I doubt will improve the taste. Re-rate: the old one was 6/4/3/3/8 (2,4 total), now this time it’s actually good!

Deep orange glow. Definitely heavier, sweeter and more alcoholic than the original white but somehow not as good. Not as refreshing and a little too overpowering making it less well-balanced. fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy orange with creamy head. Orangey yeasty aroma. Sugary sweet with soft mouthfeel. Malty and mild. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle at Fionn MacCool’s. Kudos for the summer wheat beer promotion chain pub! Dark hazy yellow, small white head. Very fresh spicy, yeasty, malt aroma - nice. Strong spicy taste. Alcohol more pronounced as it warms - very tasty. A little watery in the body. A tasty strong beer - nice job!
