Fajna piana, zapach owocowo bananowy, z długim posmakiem, piwo sprawia wrażenie bardzo gęstego.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cold bottle. Two tone yellow colour, bubbly white head. High carbonation. Tried my best, but couldn’t stop loads of sediment getting into the glass. Smell is muted. Taste is like the normal hoegaarden, but a little sharp. Toned down fruits. Absolutely no sign of the 8.7% alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Brugge (Kobe, japan) . Se non la consideriamo un strong Ale è molto buona. mantiene i profumi tipici di una blanche (agrumi, acidulo del frumento, cereali) e aggiunge un discreto dolciastro del malto. Il colore è Giallo carico, molto opalescente, con schiuma fine compatta e persistente. In bocca ricorda in tutto e per tutto la sua sorella Blanche, ma ha uno sprint alcolico in più e aggiunge sapori di pesca sciroppata e malto. Il corpo è medio, come quello di una weizenbock. Finale asciutto, aspro ma non astringente. molto beverina.

Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy blond coloured brew with no bitternesh at all, an deceptive Belgian White looks got this brew. Nevertheless an fine well sweet tasting brew, but i like the Julius more. This beer is like the Hoegaarden Special but higher in alcohol.

Bottle from Carrefour Bruxelles Midi, split on split on the not so 300kph tasting part II on Train 9437 to Koln, 26/04/13.
Hazed light golden amber with a good sized off white head.
Nose is citrus, grass, spice, corriander.
Taste comprises toffee, fruits, light malt, grass, touch of booze.
Full end of medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Pretty average fayre, the alcohol could be better integrated and comes over a little harsh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a 300ml bottle at the supermarket. Aroma of oranges, coriander, wheat and herbs. Has a hazy orange color, almost gold with a white head and is highly carbonated. The taste is complex with tones of citrus fruits and herbs. This beer is not bad, but it is definitely not my favourite.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is the regular Hoegaarden witbier, improved version.
Straw-coloured, cloudy. Nice head. Wheat and citrus nose. Coriander too. Spicy, note of butter even.
Wheat, lemon, hops, all nicely blended, good balance of bitter and sweet. The alcohol is present, but less than you’d expect of an 8% ABV. Sneaky Belgian!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bit over best before. Cloudy body the colour of scalded butter, billowing snow-white head. Fruits, malts and butterscotch on the nose. Smooth body, but alcohol was noticeable. My fault I didn’t have it sooner- bit too much sediment floating about. Will have and rate again.
