hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2006
Lovely golden colour with a frothy white head. Yeasty aroma with plenty of sweet fruits. Very bland taste: a little sweetness but not much of a finish. Easy drinking beer.

Light in color and aroma it is a good recommendation for a hoegaarden fan. Easily drinkable, with soff finishes and next to no after taste

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2006
Bottled. Goldenish amber colour with small head. Aroma of sweet berries and fruit along with some malty and hoppy hints. Very sour fruit in flavour. Also some hints of yeast and honey. Quite weird combination, but still ok to drink.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2006
Gold blond colour, lots of sprankling. Creamy average white head. Fruity nose, little yeasty. Full palate, light carbonation. Finish is sweet, light fruity (banana). Not bad but misses some character.

Quinten (1039) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2006
Ligt amber color, thin head, lots of carbonation, banana, bread, vanilla, dough, nice one with no overwalming bits.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottle: Orangish golden, fairly clear, moderate white foamy head, nice rings of lacing, soft carbonation.   Floral nose, doughy, yeasty, moderately sweet.   Clean sweet doughy start, floral, yeasty, almost candyish.   Moderate to full body, mouthfeel is less than stellar tho... average.   Somewhat dull finish, not as entertaining as the nose.   Good, but the nose leads to higher expectations than that found on the tongue.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Bottle, stamped 080206. Decent aroma, very fruity (light fruit ... pineapple, banana, citrus) and yeasty. Very yeasty in the mouth, but also dry and fruity. Actually, it’s quite refreshing. Not complex, mind you, but refreshing. Light fruit in the mouth, like citrus and a bit of pineapple. The dryness comes from a mild tartness (and the citrus) which adds just a slight pucker. Nice. Finishes with a slight clove spice. A bit like Leffe, but good nonetheless.
