Cloudy light orange color. Yeasty aroma with mild citrus aspect. Tangy flavor. For some reason it comes across as being brewed by monks.

leaparsons (9100) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2005
Hazy gold with an initially large white head. Aromas are sweet caramel malts with vanilla, spices and banana. Flavours are sweet and malty with warming alcohol, spices and yeast. Quite fruity towards the finish followed by more alcohol on the aftertaste. Quite heavy bodied. Nice but not overly complex.

Deep golden , big white fluffy head, good bead of bubbles. Wow! a big malty nose, with more than a hint of spice! Smooth sweetish palate, BIG on flavour, certainly fills the mouth with spice and malt, finish leaves a nice clean acidic edge..one to savour. Kelso Vic.Wines

Bottle of 30cl. Bought in a dutch supermarket. I prefer this one to the íregularí Hoegaarden. Very fresh and with a nice aroma. The alcohol is very well desguised. Beautiful colour: golden but at the same time cloudy. A must... if you like this sort of beers.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2005
One of the best from the Interbrew stable--this is a vinous balance of acidity, sweetness and bitter flavors, with acidity prominent but not overpowering. Itís a pity we donít see much of this star in the US--it is so much better than its namesake wheat beer. A truly grand beer.

a mes rate: aroma is great, very much like a tripel. slightly spiced with a touch of vanilla and banana. appearance is fantastic golden and cloudy with a great head but it dies very quickly leaving some fairly heavy lacing. tastes similar to the nose with vanilla, spice, banana and fruity, maybe a lick of pineapple. the alcohol is not as apparent as you would expect given its percentage. quite thick in the the pallete leaving an even more banana finsh. overall, much as i hate to admit it, i like it

haukur (1514) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 4, 2005
beautiful looks, golden ale with a large firm head on top. Smells like a wheat, bananas, fruits and that hoegaarden freshness. Taste is surprisingly wheaty and yeasty, this is a regular Hoegaarden pumped up in a steroid version. very good

pours a beautiful, white head over the golden liquid. But the flavour is just too much. It seems to be going in every possible direction at the same time and leaves the drinker rather puzzled. What are they trying to achieve? It bears too much resemblence with a young, unconditioned beer to really set me off!

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Pale, hazy strong ale. Yeasty and very spicy. I believe this one has all the typical wit-bier flavourings - without being a wheat. 300493

Hazy, big brother of Hoegaarden white, higher alcohol, very nice beer, but I like their white better on a sunny day...
