Bottle. Maybe too much alcohol for this kind of beer. Floral aroma, candy sugar, apple, citrus. I’ll try to get another one to have a better overview.

33 cl bottle. Super cloudy golden/orangy color. No head. Medium carbonation. Creamy taste. Alchool taste almost not present. Light banana taste and citrus flavors. I prefer this one to Hoegaarden white !!

slight spice to the aroma and ester elements to the aroma. Beer pours with a great golden amber colour and white head.
The flavour of this beer is great, slight citrus and strong yeasty with some slightly bread flavours combine in to something great. There is certainly no lack of body and there is the distincitve Hoegaarden aftertaste present. Great stuff.

I absolutely loved this and it is probably the best wheat beer I have ever had. The guy before me said it perfectly, its just like hoegaarden only better in every way.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Fionn MacCool’s. Normally, I wouldn’t willingly step into one of these tacky pre-fab Irish-themed chain pubs, but they have this beer in as an exclusive offering this summer as part of a wheat beer promotion, so I had to go try it. Pours a lovely hazy yellow-gold with a large white head that leaves lots of lace. It was served to me much too cold, but once it warmed, the aroma really opened up, revealing lots of yeast, bread, spice, herbs and a bit of alcohol warmth. Nice mouthfeel, soft and creamy with a wheaty tang. Flavour is great as well - the essence of the regular Hoegaarden is there, but it’s been brought up a couple of notches, with a lot more yeast and spice, and a nice, dry fruitiness. I really enjoyed this - so much so that I may venture back into Fionn MacCool’s again before the summer is out to drink a few more!

Bottle in NL. Pours a hazy light gold, with a good head. The aroma is a bit fruity, by but the smoke from adjoing revelers makes it difficult to determine any specific aroma. The body is light and the flavor is sweet, with a clear wheat taste.

Very good tasting beer. Had a little bit fuller body than Hoegaarden White. A very good beer, even if it is from interbrew.

Poured cloudy golden with a large, creamy white head. There’s citrus and spice. Well balanced and smooth with a warming sensation (alcohol). A little sweet, but a great brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Hazy light yellow in colour. It has a rich an creamy massive white head. Lacings. The flavour is yeasty and wheaty. Yeast is what mostly strikes thru in the aftertaste and there’s a dry mothfeel as well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy yellowy colour, white head, fades. Alcohol predominately in the nose, syrupy smell, some spices. Flavour is syrupy, alcohol. Mouthfeel is strange, fine grit maybe, mouth coating. Finish is slightly bitter, hoppy.
