Pale yellow, good head and lots of sparkle. Smell of citrus, hay, malts. Balanced taste - hints of peach hidden-but stops, doesn’t go down the sweet path. Finishes with a bitter taste - strong coriander and cinnamon taste. A good one - but too balanced. Stops somewhere on the way to a triple karmeliet.

Colour: pale gold. Firm white head. Nose: grass, herbs, citrus, lemon, wheat. Hints of dough and hay. Flavours: biscuit like grain, more citrus. Vanilla and syrup. Alcohol is noticeable. Finish: long, grainy, fruity and slightly bitter. Verdict: well made beer, but it reminds me a little of Karmeliet and you shouldn’t compare. But it’s no alternative.

Robe orangée, légèrement opaque. Le goût de la levure est omniprésent. On devine un arrière goût pêche. Bière très douce, mais pas excessivement. La texture est plutôt liquoreuse. Assez longue en bouche. Une bonne ale non filtrée.

Mooie schuimkraag die redelijk dicht is. Zoet citrus(geuren) aroma. Mooie troebele goudkleur. Licht romig kruidig van smaak die mooi in balans is met de carbonatiehinten van citrus banaan. Heerlijk zacht drinkbaar. Karmeliet achtig.

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and flowers, with notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of fruit, malt and yeast, with refreshing citric and hoppy notes. Bitter and estery aftertaste. Medium to rich body. Well balanced and enjoyable. Decent.

La bière Hoegaarden Grand Cru fait toute la fierté de sa brasserie. Son brassage bénéficie d'un soin tout particulier, digne d'une bière noble : froment mûr et malt d'orge, le plus fin des houblons et quelques épices mystérieuses, mais avant tout, beaucoup, beaucoup de Elle y développe une couleur pêche voilée, un arôme velouté et une douce saveur, tout en nuances subtiles.

VDuquerroux (583) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow orange opaque beer with a medium creamy white head. Medium retention. Aroma of biscuit, fruit (citrus), alcohol, spices (coriander). Medium sweet and dry refreshing bitter. Medium body,nearly silky texture, fizzy carbonation, bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, a good refreshing beer wich becomes warming without being oily. "The bird spreads its wings."
