UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into 16oz tumbler - Pours hazy brown gold with a 1/2 finger white head that goes quickly; Orange, malt, wheat and a slight hop smell to the nose; Fairly full, refreshing initial taste with orange, malt, and plenty of wheat; A sweet backtaste with a hint of the coriander; A very well balanced beer that has enough sweet to be nice, but enough zing to be interesting! I enjoyed this quite a bit and will definitely be drinking it again!

Pouring like the bottle instructs yields a very nice, but short lived foamy head-appears pale yellow and cloudy. aroma is fruity yeasty and wheaty with mild citrus and bread. flavor is light and very carbonated yet has a superb wheaty, fruity punctuation with a slightly tangy sweet finish-nice tangy, yeasty flavor lingers. overall, this is solid and is definitley a summer staple. beyond refreshing and ultra-drinkable. if 30pks of this were 16.99, id be homeless.

Best white beer Ive had. Strong coriander taste,smell is very crisp and clean. This beer compliments almost any food. Color is very pale and cloudy,with a nice foam top. The coriander leaves somewhat of an after taste.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
From bottle. Strong malt aroma, maybe honey also. Cloudy appearance with foamy white head that soon disappears. Good carbonation, looks like lemon squash. The beer has a sweet citrus flavour followed by a weird flavour of what I think is smokey bacon. Overall not as good as I remembered, I would like to try this beer on tap in Belgium if they drink it in Belgium because I wouldnt.

mojoman (158) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 A very refreshing and not too sweet white. The strong fruit flavors ( mostly orange and lemon) give it a distinct taste. In a word, this beer is special.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 Hazy yellow, small white head. Citrusy nose with some hops. Taste is lemony, a bit spicy (coriander and other) and some orange peels. Stronger hop character than most other witbiers. The hops do not get in the way of the acidity/astringency, it even complements it nicely and add a level complexity not often seen in other witbiers. Talk about a classic. If this beer was a song it would go something like this and shes buying a witbier to heaven. and beer store owners would put up signs saying No Hoegaarden tasting allowed.

seeknay36 (110) - DC, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Pours a nice off white, yellow tint with an nice lasting head. Has a spicy/citric aroma. A smooth body with a somewhat herbal (?) aftertaste. I nice beer during the hot and humid summer months.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours an incredible off-white and yellow with a nice 2-finger fluffy head. I can detect a lot of lilac and a slight citrus scent to it. Nice thick mouthfeel, goes down very well. No astringency to it. Banana and more of a herbally/flowery character as an aftertaste. A very enjoyable beer. Im curious as to how the Speciale and Grand Cru compare.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Hazy straw pour with a persistent, pure white cap of foam. Fresh orange aroma, apple tartness, restrained cloves. The flavor is a bit hard to nail down--it feels so etherial and bright that pulling out individual strands requires significant focus. Hmmm. Dry and toasty, with a lemony-zip. A nice wheat spritzy mouthfeel, without rough carbonation. Light bodied without being insipid. This is what I it seem like those towering white clouds over the sun-drenched fields of wheat in Kansas would taste like.

snowden719 (130) - Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Hazy yellow-orange color. Huge white head that dissapated fairly quickly. Strong wheat aroma with a nice spicy and citrussy smell. Nice citrus flavor. Nice level of hoppiness. Medium to high bitterness for a witbier. Spice an citrus flavors. Solid finish. thin mouthfeel, flavor could be stronger.
