I am not a fan of Hoegaarden, but I knew this was going to be different. This has a much more obvious Belgian character. Poured from a bottle at a bar, the waiter said to watch, and true to his word it foamed all over, very active. Good golden colour, clouded by all the yeast, big white foam clears. Inviting rich wheaty blonde aroma, very tasty flavour with a distinct Belgian character but not as heavy. Very satisfying when sat out at a square with the sun coming down and the World going by.

Cloudy yellow. Nice sweet lemony aroma. On palate quite sharp, lacking softness. Highly carbonated. Not much complexity but medium log finish with wheaty tones and whiff of alcohol (8%). Nothing special. Like standard Hoegaarden but stronger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - wheaty and sweetish aroma, fruitiness and some banana, light spiciness (coriander). Body is medium, malty - wheaty and sweetis flavor, some fruitiness and banana, faint spiciness. Finish is average, malty - some wheat and lightly sweetish, light fruitiness and faint spiciness, some alcohol. Strong Belgian ale with quite a lot of alcohol in the finish considering the body. Another easy to forget macro from InBev.
