This is a very pale hazy beer, almost lemony in color with a thin white head. I has a nice beery aroma, not very strong. Mouth feel - carbonation. It tastes okay, but not outstanding. It's quite drinkable but I've had better Belgian whites.

I'm not sure I've got the right beer, here. The label on my bottle is similar to the one pictured but is cream colored rather than silver. It says Original Belgian Wheat Beer arched across the top, and Wit - Blanche below the Hoegaarden in the middle of the label

One of my favorite beers! Easy to drink, not overly filling.
