Im happy with this beer. I dont normally like fruity flavors but the whole package just sits well with me. Nothing stands out on its own here. Everything is balanced and combind to produce a very good beer. I like this a bit on the cold side. I have nothing negative to say about this beer. Its not my first choice but it certainly will quench your thirst.

I never have Hoegaarden by the bottle, but its one of the Belgian trio on tap at my local, so I have it several times a week. This could dull the novelty of it, and perhaps it does, but I still enjoy it immensely. It has a wonderfully cloudy appearance, that is complimented by the citrusy, herbal flavour that is so incredibly quenching and refreshing. For a major, mass-produced beer, this is outstanding.

Finally, I get around to trying the classic. Pours a cloudy gold with a medium sized white head. The aroma is the expected lemon peels and corriander. The taste is a nice lemon and orange. The finish is fairly bready. Slightly sour and this adds to the interesting character. A great wit, but not the best.

Okay for its style. If you let it linger in the mouth for a minute it shows some successful orange and lemony citrus blended in. Also, the aftertaste is largely citrus and not very "wheaty". In general I dont like wheat beers but this is ok.

Well I found this in January in one of my favorite bars, and I thought, why are you serving this now? Its bound to be a llittle subdued. I belive all wits should be drunk at their peak, before the spices and citrus have time to decompose. Its the most available, but not the best.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 The ubiquitous witbier. Standard fare, not spectacular but extremely drinkable - a good summer beer.

kepano (277) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Tasted in France - bottled. Pours a very opaque and pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pinneaple, apricots, chalk and dust. Smooth yet crisp and refreshing. The flavour is quite mild but it leaves a very distinct citrus aftertaste. Very enjoyable level of carbonation and nice lacing. Delightful to drink.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
Bottle: soft aroma, not much to it. somewhat fruity. very unique looking. hazy yellow/white colour. very thin head that doesnt last. tastes like very mild orange. malty aftertaste. slightly carbonated, just right.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Hazy pale yellow with a fluffy thick white head and nice lacing. Yeasty citrus aroma. Sweet with spice and citrus flavors. Very light and lively with carbonation in the mouth, but it doesnt seem thin at all. Possibly the lightest and most refreshing beer I have ever had. Very smooth and easy drinking. Excellent in every respect, even the price!
