garthicus (2908) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle, pours golden orange with a good head and has the cloudy Hoegaarden trademark with flecks of yeast. A citrus-malt-barley aroma with a hint of caramel. Tastes just as wonderful as it looks and smells, fruity-malty with even a pear like aftertaste, such a nice beer be wary of its 8.7% alcohol content. All in all an outstanding beer.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2007
Lys Ýl, med kraftig frugtagtig og sÝdlig duft. Smagen er som en blond, dog mere fyldig og gÝret. Alcohollen opdages ikke p.g.a. den sÝde smag. Meget frisk i smagen.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2007
(330mL bottle, BB 12/01/09): Pours a huge head, big bubbles, fizzy, lasting and decent lacing. Body is clear/cloudy-ish golden yellow. Strong flowery aroma, sweet and almost caustic? Sweet taste, flowery, light mouthfeel, somewhat bitter aftertaste, but then sweet. That bitter and caustic flavor/aroma might be from the alcohol bite. Not too strong or thick, like usual belgian strong ales Iíve had. Light and tasty. Kinda like a stronger version of the original.

beervis (243) - Taylorís Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
Interesting. Tastes like Hoegaarden with a hint of Special Brew - strong, spicy, some alcohol evident on the palate but the aroma is almost identical to Hoegaarden White. Cloudy orange, thin head but plenty of carbonation, loads of yeasty floaties. Interesting and flavoursome, so as rocket fuel this gets full marks from me, but I prefer the regular witbier I think.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2007
From the bottle at Bier Markt. Pours cloudy. Aroma is very nice, has some surprisingly tropical scents, including mango. Flavor is extremely spicy at first sip, but subsides to let some of the fruity flavours come through. Overall, a very interesting strong beer.

It is sort of like hoegaarden without botherning to add taste. Grand Cru? Iíd like to talk to some people

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from sainsburys. I remember the first time I had this, I hated it. Now itís one of those "if you canít find anything else" brews. Itís readily available at any supermarket, itís cheap, itís strong and it tastes great *bright smile followed by a thumbs up*. It does the trick. Spicy nose of citrus and alcohol. Taste of coriander, citrus, vanilla and orange. Oh, and alcohol. Very wheaty. The alcohol dominates the finish, but itís not a bad thing. Itís warming feeling. Mmmm.

ha1ag (863) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Apr 2007 This is "the pride of the Hoegaarden brewery" says the label. Well, not in my opinion. The 8.5% alcohol is not hidden a all and dominates the flavour. The coriander and some citrus fruits are badly pushed away. Crap. Dec 2008 The previous one must have been spoiled as the currently sampled ones are much more appealing with proper balance and fruty yeasty mix

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
Disapponting - too much carbonation and the alcohol was ever present. Decent flavour - like the regular Hoegaarden, some spicing and a hint of orange, but didnít live up to my expectations.
