look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured 2/3 into a frosted pint glass, swirled remainder in bottle and poured the rest. Definitely a sexy and refreshing looking beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with nice foamy white head. Lots of noticeable carbonation and unfiltered sediment! Sweet aroma of orange and coriander. The taste meets the nose with the orange and coriander. Very smooth and light. A touch sweet, but good. Refreshing! Great Summer beer no matter how you slice it. I'd have again on a hot Summer day!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Murky straw yellow, with a decent head that disappears quickly.

Smell: Wheat, grass, lemon, spice.

Taste: Wheat, lemon, spice, grass.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, with a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Overall: Good beer. Hoegaarden is a classic wit that manages to hold up well in this era of microbrews. Tasty and sessionable.
