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.

Pours a murky gold with a creamy white head. Smell is quite yeasty. Taste is a good balance between bitter and sweet.

Opaque gold, weak white head but - most importantly - it has bits. Hard looking dark bits. I like soil as much as the next man, but... Well. Yeah. Caramel, malt and cellar notes on the nose. Orange and corander with wheat and cellar yeast in the taste. Like regular, but more saturated. Good.

Cuso (4376) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Ugly golden brown color with medium white head. Aroma of malt, lemon, banana, spices. Sweet malty taste with honey, banana, yeast, spices, alcohol bitterness in finish. Unbalanced, not tasty beer.

Quite interesting exp. Intense yeast presence, pleasantly fruity, mostly orange, banana, spices, bit notes of alcohol spiking, light malty background. Quite dry finish. Sweetish with light bitterness. Drinkable, but nothing special to buy it more
