Don't get me wrong, it's a good summertime beer. Very refreshing.

However, as you said it's fairly expensive. For what I'd pay at my local pub for one I could get two much more flavorable local brews.

To me, if I pay a high price for a beer, it better be a very flavorful beer.

I've never actually had Hoegaarden. Ive had Blue Moon, Ommegang's Witt, and a couple Wits at a beer festival (one excellent, one terrible).

I don't find BM to be bland. Light in flavor, yes, but not bland.

Well, I've had BM and Hoegaarden back to back at a bar. BM definitely has a stronger flavor. I like Blue Moon much more than Hoegaarden. Hoe always seems watered down to me.

Not to mention Blue Moon is a more reasonably priced beer.
