3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good aroma, citrusey with hints of alcohol, bread and malt. Pours a cloudy amber with good carbonation and a medium head. Taste is sweet and somewhat citrusey, the high alcohol content is well disguised. It’s got a nice balance but not overly complex. More interesting than regular Hoegaarden but still unspectacular.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 I expected more from this beer, is not that different from Julius, and was not that good. I think it was more alcohol than any other stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a frothy, dense white head with light lacing. Aroma is bready and yeasty with a touch of butterscotch and light fruit. Body has nice, sweet Belgian maltiness with good yeasty character and balance. An enjoyable Belgian strong, but could use a touch more complexity.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Prima birra che commento; in una sola parola...fantastica!
Ha gli stessi aromi della classica hoegaarden white, ma esaltati e coperti finemente dall’ alcol.
Consigliata vivamente a tutti coloro che adorano le bianche di frumento.

Clove and bananna dominate the aroma and it has a creamy body that is thick without being cloying. Great beer.
