Leighton (20531) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Ive 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.

fiulijn (20221) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (19399) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Fruchtig-hefiger, recht milder Antrunk mit verhaltener und trockener Kruternote, die eher nebenschlich erscheint. Das Ganze wird trockener, das Level wird milder und ist gerade noch so stark, das es nicht als wssrig einzustufen ist. Herber Ausklang, in dem die Kruternote nicht mehr erkennbar ist. 8/7/8/7/8/8

Rasmus40 (19338) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
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

rlgk (18841) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

harrisoni (17996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2005
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

saxo (17953) - Hjbjerg, 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.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2004
Bottled
Very hazy citron yellow with small white head and some carbonation. Aroma is yeast and wheat and some crisp citron fruit. Very fresh aroma indeed. Taste is something similar to German weizen but not so sweet, extremely freshing beer. I have to try this tapped, which I haven't found for a long time.
