hopscotch (10009) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle… Murky golden ale with thousands of dark particles and a small, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is fruity and doughy; offering sugar cookie, subtle spice, banana and pink bubblegum. Full-bodied and quite creamy with tickling carbonation. Well-balanced flavors of sweet bread, fruitcake and minerally, peppery bitterness. Warming, soothing finish. Bottle courtesy of fata2683!

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 25, 2010
nonostante il pregiudizio con cui mi ci sono approcciato, non mi dispiace poi tanto; è un po’ grezza nel sentore alcolico (e meno male che "remains surprisingly light and delicate") e abbastanza generica, ma chi si aspettava un prodotto unico?

Wolfbass (954) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 20, 2011
Diciamo un poco diversa dalle notissime ormai belgian strong ale, ma tutto sicuramente nella media.

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

madsberg (10608) - 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 (8333) - Ursel, 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.
