Looks like pineapple juice with a solid two fingers of perfectly white head. Pretty much how I think a White Ale should look. Musty aroma with hints of sulfur and spice. Somewhat thin in the body department. The wheaty citrus notes and a hint of banana are better expressed in the taste. Hoegaarden is quite refreshing and with a quick finish, you are ready for more, unless you hate it...
