Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes goldgelbes Bier mit ordentlichem Schaum. Geruch leicht hefig, leicht fruchtig, Gewürze. Geschmack hefig würzig, leicht fruchtig.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 I’ve tasted this gem many times before; the first was actually in Belgium. Hoegaarden is crisp, smooth and delicious. I had a glass yesterday at brunch. The color is very light; the head is quite thick; and the aroma is citrusy and refreshing. The taste is similaly fruity, though to a lesser degree.

Hazy pale yellow with a big white head. Beautiful when poured into the proper glass. Aroma is sweet fruity, yeasty, citrus and coriander. Flavor is moderate sweet. The finish is light acidic and sweet. Very refreshing and fantastic on a hot summer day. 060211

Koelschtrinker (22078) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Fruchtig-hefiger, recht milder Antrunk mit verhaltener und trockener Kräuternote, die eher nebensächlich erscheint. Das Ganze wird trockener, das Level wird milder und ist gerade noch so stark, das es nicht als wässrig einzustufen ist. Herber Ausklang, in dem die Kröuternote nicht mehr erkennbar ist. 8/7/8/7/8/8

fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2002
Pale yellow, cloudy, thin collar. Strong spicy aroma (coriander) and citrus fruits. Dry taste, spicy (coriander and cloves); light malt and hop. Palate simple, not too bitter, enough spicy. Good example, but Witbiers are not my top ones.

Theydon_Bois (21484) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle at the Europa bar opposite Midi station, 21/01/18. Hazy yellow with a decent white cap. Nose is straw, lemongrass, yeast esters, vanilla, light herbals. Taste comprises wheaten bread, light white peppery spice, clove, grains, lemon drizzle, light nana. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough refreshing example of the style but a touch overly sweet ... God knows how I used to drink pints of this when it first appeared in the UK 20 or so years ago !

UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Bottle - pours a hazy yellow. Yeasty, grainy, citrusy. One of the better macro beers.

saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Nice big head with medium duration. Pale pale yellow. High carbonation. Taste is fruity with just the right amount of citrus and acidity - which means not too much like many others.

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
