ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden, with a diminishing cloud-white head. Nose is like the regular Hoegaarden but more robust, spice, yeast, cloves and lots of sweet fruit, some strawberries in there. Taste follows the nose with a candi sugar sweetness and more fruit. Carbonation is lively, mouthfeel quite smooth and finish is long with a touch more fruit sweetness.

yourilevesque (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Bière mi blonde - mi brune bien trouble et surmontée d’une mousse caramélisée. De curieuses particules solides en suspension dans mon verre qui ne semblent pas être de la levure. Nez de caramel brûlé et de levures belges. En bouche la bière est très sucrée. Encore ce caramel mais cette fois il semble mélangé à un sirop de maïs, qui résulte en un curieux goût de miel et d’alcool mal dissimulé. Le malt présent dans cette bière donne une soutenance au liquide qui gagnerait à être plus houblonné. Pas mauvaise bière, mais lourde à la manière d’une quadrupel mal balancée.

MelvinKalksma (71) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2015
Aroma: Banana, clover, fruity, grapefruit. Appearance: Turbid amber/golden beer with a white head. Taste/Palate: Basically the aroma with carbonation. Overall: A great mix of a weizener and a triple beer.

Maakun (1479) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle. Golden with short lasting white head. Lots of spices and Belgian yeast up front with cloves, fried banana, pancakes, dough. Over medium sweet with herbal bitter finish. Over medium bodied. Very spicy beer with some abbey-style yeast. Maybe a bit too much but still quite enjoyable.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
Aromatizada con especias y refermentada en botella. Trigo y cebada. Dorada turbia, con sedimento. Dos dedos de espuma. Aroma floral y plátano. Sabor completo y complejo, especiado, miel y final amargo con postgusto dulce y caliente por el alcohol. Muy buena.

Upgraded version of the classic Hoegaarden. Lot of grapefruit and pineapple, fresh and smooth. Low carbonation. Booze well hidden.

DrHanz (2) - Nieuwegein, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2015 does not count
A better-tasting alternative for Leffe Blond. One of my favorite summer beers. Goes well with some chorizo. Coriander, some banana, hint of citrus. Serve chilled.

mjansen1310 (132) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
0,33 litre bottle. Hazy golden beer. Tastes like an weizen with hints coriander. Also fruity banana hints. Somewhat heavier then the blond from hoegaarden.
