My favorite Witbier. Drinkability on-tap is amazing with this one.
This beer has just the right amount of spice for a witbier. The light, somewhat-cloudy appearance and the wheat & citrus aroma are appealing during the hot summer days. The taste and mouthfeel are even more satisfying. The spice and citrus are prevalent enough to give this beer a mouthful of flavor, but not too strong to take away from the wheat and yeast. Smooth as can be, patricularly on-tap, Hoegaarden has the perfect balance for summer - or anytime you want a witbier.
If you like this style beer and come across this beer on tap, do give it a try.
Serving type: on-tap

A-Cloudy straw colored body. Bit brighter, pale gold in light. Creamy two finger head. Spotty lacing.
S-Grains of wheat. Yeasty. Faint banana. Faint soap. Orange. Pear. Cider. Garden herbs: Basil, oregano.
T-Fresh squeezed orange. Wheat. Straw. Dark breads. Other unknown grains. Herbal.
M-Medium body. Medium carbonation. Love the herbal cool-spiciness of coriander. Sip starts slightly sweet & tart, continues with a smooth wheat-grain middle and ends with a bitter cinnamon/clove like drying, (most likely the yeast). Nice examples of sweet and bitter in the feels. Well rounded.
O-Classic witbier. Memorable. While not the pinnacle witbier, it does justice and delivers on all categories of what makes a beer good. Refreshing without compromising on flavor.
