brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Orange pour with a white head. Strange skunked aroma, a bit of banana, and some fruity esters. Sweet bready malt, a bit of caramel, and some toffee. Mild alcohol flavor, a lot of banana, and some pear and apple esters. Light spice, tons of sweet malt, and a fair amount of sugar.

luklaer (187) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
06-24-2015: A nice unknown beer from Hoegaarden. I don’t know what it’s got to do with Julius Caesar, but it is a nice beer.

JorgeLee (1482) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Haven’t had this for years, since Oddbins in Preston had the whole Hoegaarden range for some inexplicable reason! Deep amber colour, nice white head. Sweet example of a Belgian ale, boozy fruitiness, bit of yeast and barely enough spicy hop. Hint of pear drop esters. Ok, not my favourite thing, but very drinkable for a change.

DwarfeD (1795) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Hazy dark orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Yeast, banana, apricot, herbs and spices. A tad too sweet, but still a nice Belgian brew.
