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.

330 ml bottle in Leuwen. Golden with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is malty, soft yeasty, slight banana and faint alcohol. Taste is super smooth and nicely balanced with the yeast. Some banana and hay. Good!

SkillsFactory (477) - ITALY - APR 11, 2016
Best before 05/08/16, fatta invecchiare per oltre un anno. Dorata opalescente, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di banana, chiodi di garofano, frumento e miele. Al palato stesse componenti, arancia candita e lievito belga, sbilanciata sul dolce con un timido finale erbaceo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

33cl bottle - nose is banana and wheat. Much sweeter than the regular version. Much better as well and clearly more of a sipper.
