over here in the uk Franziskaner dunkel is cheaper and very tasty. I really like bluemoon but being imported from over the pond is pricy for a small bottle... Shame it cant be licenced to one of our brewerys.

Hoegaarden is ok. I used to like it more. Blue Moon is pretty good for me. I preferred Celis White and Allagash White is an excellent example of the style.

Just remember that Blue Moon uses a clean American yeast, so it's not a true Belgian wit.

At this time I can say I've made beer better then Hoegaarden. At least a witbier that I'd rather drink.

I had my first last Friday. I enjoyed it, and will have it again. Alagash white was another good one in that style. Now, I don't know how to really pronounce it... as I say Hoe-Garden, lol. You don't know what you don't know, right!?

I'm with you, I've always just said Hoe-Garden. How is it supposed to be pronounced?
