duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2002
Re-rate: liked just as much as the last time i had it. Hints of orange peel coriander on the nose, with slight hints of apple and pepper. Sweetish palate, with an apple juice flavour. Slight bitter finish, but also a slight alcoholic finish, which was the only down point on this beer, otherwise fine.

Delicate, complex & spicy. Incredibly filling has a beautiful appearance especially when in it’s appropriate glass. Thumbs up.

I’m not the greatest favourite of white beer, but I won’t neglect this famous belgian beer.

caesar (4716) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2002
Cloudy yellow color in the style of belgian wheats. Firm head, with longlasting lacing. Taste is very spicy, citrus-elements, and complex in a way it’s heavy on the stomach (what’s the english expression?). It’s more a strong German Wheat, instead of a Belgian one. Spicy palate.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2002
Yellow, milky, big head. Sour aroma. Bitter with a slightly bitter after taste.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2002
Deep blonde, with a nice smooth yet full body, OK head. Reasonably complex, easygoing with just a hint of fire showing through. Goes down well, finishes with nuts in the mouth. (yes I am talking about a beer here!)

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Smells like the wit with more floral aroma--taste is much fruitier and spicier with less yeast. Finish is smooth but not delivering completely in the flavor department. I still have no idea what a grand cru is supposed to be, but this was good...probably better than the with in my opinion.

Slightly more spicy and fruity than regular Hoegaarden. Much higher abv is well hidden.
