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!

Why am I rating a summer beer in the middle of the winter? Hoegaarden white is the beer that peaked my interest in Belgian Style Ales. This white beer is the beer is used as my standard for a long time. Rich in orange, coriander and vanilla, pours with a full white foamy head. Best enjoyed on a hot summer day.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 Hazy straw with a fluffy and yeasty off-white head and medium lacing. Citrus and malty aroma with plenty of yeast and maybe a touch of herbs. Very refreshing flavor with crisp citrus notes and vanilla smoothness. Malts all over the place in the flavor and finish. Not as interesting as most of the artisinal Belgian ales but surely a good choice if youre looking for a classic Witbier.

Fizzy head that quickly recedes. Aroma is spicy and yeasty, a ton of orange peel in the flavor.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 The aroma is spicy and fruity with wheat and a hint of flowers. Smooth and not too bitter with a hint of citrus. This is a wheat lovers beer. Many other beers that are not bitter are also weak or watery but not this beer.

This is one of the most refreshing beers you can get. Its hazy (unfiltered)with hints of coriander and citrus. Is a cheap good brew.

This beer is extrodinary. I have never had any thing quites like it. Very well balanced. Pours very pale and cloudy, with a thick white head that thins slowly. The aroma is pleasant, that of apples. It kind of reminds me of the smell of a cider. The flavor is delightful as well. Apples, citrus and spices are present. The spicy sweetness lingers in your mouth. This beer is very smooth and drinkable. This beer would be good all year round. It is refreshing enough to be enjoyed during the summer, but spicy enough to remind you of the holidays. Very good, Very delicious, try it!

Foxbush (1968) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 This was a Christmas present. The head formed easily but dissapated. there was lacing down the glass. The color was a cloudy straw. The taste was yeasty with a hint of spice. It was not my type of beer. I like more hops. I rescored this wheat beer o March 9, 2008. It is too sweet with nohops. the orange flavors are just not me.

Bottle. Pours a unique hazy light gold with thick bone-white head. Aroma is of hops, spices and bread. Taste is yeasty, very spicy and somewhat citrusy. Very tasty. Excellent beer.

Hazy very pale yellow beer with a short lasting head but persistent lacing. Very interesting aromas of fruit and spices, much brighter and fresher than most wheat beers. Spices and citrus flavors with a lingering sweetness. Thin mouthfeel with ample carbonation and extreme drinkability. Makes me want warm summer night.
