Not the best belgobeer. Smooth but short with little flavor and punchy alcoholbite.

madsberg (10144) - 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

JorisPPattyn (7889) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2003
Thick creamy head with irregular to very large bubbles, collapsing but reasonably stable. Peachy colour, hazey. Nose with coriander, white candi sugar, pefumed, citrussy. Very perfumed taste as well, slightly bitterish - orange peel taste, wheaty. Lots of sweetness left. Fizzy mouthfeel. Bitterish, spicey aftertaste. Much citruspeel again, and some kind of exotic fruit. Hoegaarden Grand Cru used to be a beer on its own - uninterchangeable. Maybe it still is. But I do miss the Pierre Celis - touch.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2003
Golden hazy color. Taste is a complex pattern of fruit and spices. Finishes light and nicely balanced.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Deep sweet malt, wheaty banana, yeast, brown sugar. Nice orange-amber hazy w/off-white foamy lacing head. Med heavy body with low-med carb. More sweet & malty, more complex than Hogaarden white. Alcohol, wheat, sugar, yeast. Finish is light bitter with hops. Sweet light bitter after.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Hazy golden yellow, with a bit billowy white head and nice brewers lace. Sweeter than regular Hoegaarden, I detected less spice and citrus. Aroma is muted, with just a bit of yeast and alcohol poking through. Thicker palate than the wit as well. Enjoyable, thanks Doug.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2006
33cl Bottle. Thick, cloudy amber orange colour, with a fairly bubbly white head. Complex aroma: cloves, lemon, and a general rich sweetness. The lavour was tangy, fruity, with wheat hints - like a strong hoegaarden witbier. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel. I found the finish quite alcoholic/vinegary, accompanied by bitterness, which put me off, but then I am not a great fan of stronger beers. Quality in moderation.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2006
Orange-yellow colour, lots of sprankling, average white head, and a lot of yeast at the bottom of the bottle%. Fruity, sweet malty aroma, herby, rather dry, dough with a light yeasty alcoholic touch. Full body, lots of carbonation. Finish is sweet-bitter, ending rather dry and just a little alcoholic. An average one.
