thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2005
Bottle. Pours out a cloudy yellow color topped by a diminishing, fluffy white head. Slight fruitiness, orangey, yeasty aroma. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Initial flavor is what the aroma may lead you to, spicy yeast flavors and orange notes. The finish is quite alcoholic.

rauchbier (3665) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2005
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Hazy gold, quickly disappearing white head and good condition. Low fruity malt and yeast initially in the nose with a little corriander spiciness developing as it warms. Slight estery wheatiness in the mouth but it becomes overwhelmed by the alcohol. Yeast and spices linger in the finish with a comforting retronasal burn of alcohol.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2005 Rerate: my, how your tastes evolve over time. I made little of this first time I tasted it. Now can’t get enough of it. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a short white head. Lots of fruit and yeast esters in the nose. Sweet and fruity at the front of the mouth and develops some spicy bitterness at the back. Rounded mouthfeel, with some alcoholic bite in the finish.

Not exzpecting much from this one, it really gave me a nice surprise, good full flavour rich palate, no wieeries in that department, perhaps my opinion concerning hoegaarden needs some ajusting.......

oh6gdx (22588) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2005
Bottled, huge white head (no matter how I tried to pur it), disappeared in a few minutes. Orangebrown/golden coloured and cloudy. Smells very fruity and fresh. Tastes fruity, spicy and a bit of alcohol. The minor alcohol taste fits the whole well, and suits the sweet fruit taste. Wellbalanced taste.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Cloudy golden amber with a small white head, some lace. Very fruity, some "horseblanket" aromas. Effervescent hop flavor with flowers, citrus, spice, alcohol...nice bitterness too. Basically like "regular" hoegaarden X 2 plus notes of alcohol.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2005
Sharp and astringent with a very acrid nose. Pours cloudy. Comes across like an amped up wheat, which I guess is pretty much what it is. Has all the expected Hoegaarden characteristics in abundance - Citrus, spice, etc - but with an added sharpness. Fresh, a bit different, and fulfills its promise.
