caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2005
Cloudy light orange color. Yeasty aroma with mild citrus aspect. Tangy flavor. For some reason it comes across as being brewed by monks.

CapFlu (4820) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
(33cl bottle) Sampled at Lubiere’s place on August 11, 2005. pours a large, frothy white head with a cloudy, straw coloured body. Leafy, banana, fresh smoke nose. More thinnly flavoured than the nose - milky, banana and mild cloves. Average.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2005
This is a very strong version of a whitbier by Hoegaarden, but it is simple to describe if you have had the standard Hoegaarden - add lots of alcool into the palate, a darker pour, and some caramel from somewhere. The light hints of citrus are still to be found, as is the wheat-bitterness.

Dedollewaitor (14811) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2006
Unclear golden with fine white head. Aroma of yeast fruits(citrus) & spices. Ok filling texture. Wheat and spices dominates throughout and ends up with a bitter finish. Pleasant and good alternative to the regular Hoegaarden.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a hazy marmalade orange with creamy head. Sweet yeasty aroma with hint of banana and coconut. Good mouthfeel, with sweet orange flavour and pepper spices and a medium/hard bitter finish. Only negatives would be a little too sweet and obvious alcohol.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours a hazy dark yellowy coulour with a big white head. Ester driven aroma, spicy (cloves), citrus fruits and dusty yeast. Fairly balanced and pleasant. Body is full and sticky, flavour is estery, with caramel, some soft spices and a warm alcohol finish. Not too shabby.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
Interesting. Tastes like Hoegaarden with a hint of Special Brew - strong, spicy, some alcohol evident on the palate but the aroma is almost identical to Hoegaarden White. Cloudy orange, thin head but plenty of carbonation, loads of yeasty floaties. Interesting and flavoursome, so as rocket fuel this gets full marks from me, but I prefer the regular witbier I think.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
330ml bottle at The White Horse, Parson’s Green. Similar in appearance and aroma to regular Hoegaarden wheat beer but with a crisp, full bodied taste that shows its alcoholic strength. The citrus tang really comes out in the finish. Decent stuff.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Pours a hazy light orange color with a white head. Aroma is light malt, orange, coriander, and a hint of yeast. Flavor is bitter orange peel, coriander, with a dry bitter finish.
