3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Tasted some time in the late 90’s or early 2000’s. Purchased at Roseville in Sydney. Still remember vividly to this day. Remember thinking that it was far better than Hoogaarden. Haven’t been able to find it for year and then read about it in a blog last week.
Pale. Cloudy. Great head. Very fresh fine aromas. Citrus, spice, blossom and malt. Dry, slight sour edge and just perceivable bitterness. The palate was very long and fine. Drier than most wheat beers and much more refreshing. Layers of complexity.
This is the stuff of legend.

25 cl bottle 5.0% abv. Murdy pale colour. Aroma with fruit and flowers. Taste has more acidity than hoegaarden wit. Also orange peel and flowery notes. Good but not great.

Nice head/body color contrast, almost like a perfect fried egg. Banana bread aroma. Lemony banana flavor, cake, creamy finish. Not overly complex but a quite refreshing and enjoyable Belgian white.

25cl bottle from Vanuxeem. Reading the history of this beer after a long day just gives me a headache.. so I’ll just say to me this tastes like a hazier version of Hoegaarden. I need to have a bottle of both to really compare tho.

On tap at Craft Beer Base, it’s a regular there. A nice very mild white. Good lacing and nice foam. Smooth and a bit spicy. It would be nice on a summer day. Incredibly easy to drink I finished it in record time~!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Bottle. It pours a white (at least I think it was white as it disappeared as soon as i poured it) head over a light amber cloudy body. Its aroma is mostly malts but also has traces of citrus fruits. I see the review that says it has a sour aroma and I can see what they are getting at. It tastes somewhat bitter which passes through carbonation to a citrus and then to malts with a bitter finish. Quite drinkable

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is actually the original Hoegaarden, brewed by master brewer Pierre Celis to capture the taste of his archetypical witbier. It’s deliciously wheaty with coriander, orange and some other spices/fruits. Very nice.
