On tap at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford Really refreshing especially with half a slice on lemon. Good wheat beer with just a tang of orange and coriander. If nothing else is on I am quite happy to have this

Classic belgian wit, for sure. Cloudy, white appearance. Aroma of banana and grapefruit. Flavor is laced with orange and bananas, as well as baking soda. Drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Draught on hot patio at Fionn MacCools. Pours with a big, fine, white small rocked head, a thin lacing left behind - in the stupid oversized Hoegaarden glass is a thick-looking opaque, murky bright yellow liquid, resembles pure grapefruit juice. No bubbling - not appealing at all. Aroma is heavy on the soapy cilantro/coriander, with sharp yeast, wheat flour, euro-hops, cigarette ash and tart grapefruit-lemon; bit like a wheat beer on steroids. Taste was actually - initially - quite mild, heavy on the tobacco ash, coriander, sour lemonade - no malt and only a touch of hop. Weak but clean on the palate with a quick diminsh until the second half of the glass, when the ashy bitterness started to overstay its welcome on my tongue. Mouthfeel somewhat acidic. Hate to say it, but a squeeze of lemon helped me finish my pint. *re-rate November 2006 - really very good, 2.9 was way too low - soft mouth, almost creamy, light acidity, citric, yeasty and lightly spiced - I like Unibroues Blanche de Chambly better (more body) but this is good at being what it is ...

Bottle. A very light yellow pour. Citrusy smell and a very fruity taste. A good finish but the taste lasts too long. Could use a little less spice in it.

This is a good beer but I dont like coriander and for me there is way too much in it.

DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2006 Draught at the Belgian Cafe in Perth. Lemonade-yellow, very hazy, creamy white head with nice lace. Slightly sweet aroma, light and refreshing palate with some faint zesty citrus and notes of vanilla and cardamom spice. I could drink this aaaallllll night! I think draught is better than bottle (not a surprise).

Bottle and tap. Looks hazy and has almost no head. Smells of citrus and flowers. Very refreshing taste and palette. Perfect in the summer heat. Gimme more. :)
