3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-yellow colour, lots of sprankling, average white head, and a lot of yeast at the bottom of the bottle%. Fruity, sweet malty aroma, herby, rather dry, dough with a light yeasty alcoholic touch. Full body, lots of carbonation. Finish is sweet-bitter, ending rather dry and just a little alcoholic. An average one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth and fruity taste. Sweet aroma with a yeast/fruit aftertaste perfect on a hot day sitting in a beer garden. A few of these and you’ll be feeling all summery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl Bottle. Thick, cloudy amber orange colour, with a fairly bubbly white head. Complex aroma: cloves, lemon, and a general rich sweetness. The lavour was tangy, fruity, with wheat hints - like a strong hoegaarden witbier. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel. I found the finish quite alcoholic/vinegary, accompanied by bitterness, which put me off, but then I am not a great fan of stronger beers. Quality in moderation.

Enough to make a grown man cry! Fantastic on every level. Ratebeer readers, I recommend trying this with a nice peice of Salmon or other similar fish. This is figuratively and literally the top of the barrel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge ivory head with cloudy golden body. The nose bears a strong aroma of coriander, honey and malts. The flavor was full of spice, clove, and was slightly sweet with notes of plum. The aftertaste was slightly bitter and peppery from the alcohol. Medium to full body. Moderate finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Unclear yellow-orange with a small whitish head. Sweet, yeasty aroma with spice (coriander) and orange peel. Sharp, tart witbier flavor. Acidy finish after a smooth, creamy start. Malty. Strong spiciness is a plus but wears on me by the end. A little wood flavoring, too. Extra alcohol is appreciated, adds a punch. Nice one, but I’m not going to rave.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really good looking head, quite cloudy. Like a regular Hoegaarden, only more so.. One of my favourites.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Muddy amber colour with a nice white head. Sweet aroma of fruit and yeast. Tasty fizzy flavour of spices, yeast and fruit, very nice but nothing overwelming.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Pours to a slightly cloudy amber colour with decent head. Very interesting aroma, almost pearlike. Remarkably smooth for 8.5%, incredibly drinkable with a smooth, likeable aftertaste. It would be very easy to drink several of these, you really cannot taste the strength of this beer.
