madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2002
Hazy orange colour. Decent head. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy (corriander). Is a little too alcahol-flavoured for me. Has citrus notes as well. Not my favourite Hoegaarden, but a decent brew though

pilsnerrogge (2486) - Finspång, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2002
Orange/yellow hazy colour. Firm head. Yeasty, spicy aroma. Dry and very alcohol-dominated flavour. Halfway through the second bottle I started to enjoy the alcohol-flavour;-)

It is a nice strong beer.

joet (2156) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 15, 2002
Much better than my previous encounters with this beverage. Though not spectacular, decently aromatic, good coriander, the body suffers from lack of texture and heft. Finish is weak ass.

lassewan (44) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2002
Not the best belgobeer. Smooth but short with little flavor and punchy alcoholbite.

Though I’d give this one another go but it’s pretty much the same as the previous rate. In fact if anything it’s a tad blander than I remember so I’ve knocked 0.1 off the final mark.
First Rated 7/7/2002 2.9 I’ve been waiting for some time to try this in the hope that I would find at least one Hoegaarden to get excited about. Pours a hazy orange/honey colour with a medium size and lasting creamy white head. Very faint floral hops and malt aromas. Flavour is slightly more complex than aroma and the alcohol is very well masked for such a light tasting beer. Lightly carbonated mild bitter sweet palate. Light floral honey and bitter start, and grainy malt sweeter middle with a short zesty finish. Disappointed ? yes I am - I’m still to find out why peope get so excited about these - the yall seem way too bland for my taste. The Julius is probably overall my favourite.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Cloudy yellow, fruity nose, lots of carbonation. Bitter finish and an alcoholic bite. Quite nice.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2002
Spicy and wheaty aroma. Very alcoholic flavour. Short finish. A below average Belgian ale.
