1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hoegaarden with lime.
Pours cloudy golden, thick white head.
Aroma of citronelle/green lime wheat and yeasty.
Taste, citrus, green, light coriander wheat, yeasty.
It’s refreshing, simple, and again a beer that tries to mimic the German radlers by offering subpar products with fruits.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle from the gb, very small white head, light yellow colour, coriander smell, taste: very sweet, predominant lemon: lemon lollipop, lemonade. Also a bit watery and sugary. It’s a shame for a good beer like hoegaarden to ruin their own beer by adding artificial stuff in the beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 33 cl poured into my classy Michael Jackson tasting glass. Pours a hazy whitish yellow with a medium white head and an artificial sour lemon-flavour, with hints of herbs and hops. The taste is mostly dominated by artificial citrus-flavour and artificial sweetener, not much beer to be found in this. It must be a good thirst-quencener, but I don’t think I would call this beer.

(25cl bottle) Pours a somewhat hazy light pale yellowish body with a spare white head. Aroma of lemon dish soap, car wash…reminiscent childhood memory of the smell of washing dairy cows prior to showing them at the state fair for 4-H (soap on cow hair..). Flavor of watered down flat Sprite…
