rdb84 (79) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Light wheaty aroma, but very nice appearance, hazy and with serious sediments. Tastes resemble a German weissen, but much more subtle and refined. Again, more of a triple body here, with deep and robust (but relatively short) taste development due to alcohol pct. Small touch of citrus, large wheat taste. Quite refreshing. Sediments can taste somewhat bitter, though.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/gold with thick white head. Aroma is clove, alcohol, grass. Taste is mild citrus, biscuit, yeast funk, and strong wheat presence. Well balanced and easy drinker.

Sampled from bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Unclear golden colour, white head....yeast, citrus, fruits....decent body.

Bottle, pours cloudy, golden with a white head, starts sweet with flavors of fruit and yeast and a slightly bitter, alcohol finish. Nice beer.

droef (78) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2014
33cl bottle. Had this one many years ago and didn’t like it. Tried it again last week and was pleasantly surprised. Typical Hoegaarden taste. I think this one is a great heavy beer for warm summer nights.

MonsterMagnet (158) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange/gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus, resin, herbs, spices, malt. Fresh citrus, peach, spicy (nutmeg, clove, pepper, lots to discover...) flavour on a wheaty malt base. Soft mouthfeel, fairly high carbonation. Spiced up, fresh and full flavoured. Alcohol is well hidden.

YzaaL (7) - - MAR 15, 2014 does not count
Une très bonne surprise sur cette dégustation. Une très belle robe et une odeur exquise, un gout exceptionnel ou on sent vraiment les aromes, et n’accroche pas trop au palais. Une bière un peu forte pour une blanche mais elle en vaut le détour !

gwillrich (150) - São José dos Campos, BRAZIL - MAR 13, 2014
Essa cerveja me surpreendeu. Os sabores dela lembram muito os da Karmeliet. Ótima formação de espuma, porém baixa persistência.
