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.

Lichtblond bier met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Is lang geleden dat ik dit dronk en vraag me af of het nog wel gebrouwen wordt. Tripel achtig bier dat ik vroeger graag dronk !

330ml bottle served in a Trapping glass.
A: Pours a dark yellow to orange color. A bit cloudy. Forms a medium bubbled white head with good retention and only few lacings left. A small and thin layer persists
S: Very fruity on the nose. Bananas, mainly. Toffee. Sweet malts and Belgian yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront with notes of banana, toffee, honey. Delicious Belgian yeasts and flowery hops. In overall, it’s a sweet beer either a sweet malts backbone. Finish is made of soft hops bitterness
M: Medium to heavy bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Aftertaste is mainly made of sweet malts
O: Good drinkability. Great beer. The proof that AMBEV can produce good beer (?)

One of the original Hoegaarden beers created by Pierre Celis in the eighties, then taken over by Interbrew (now AB InBev) and apparently still made. Snow white head, colour a deep orangey blonde. Very akin to Hoegaarden Grand Cru, but more sugary sweetness, even cloying till deep into the finish, and more hop bitterness. I’m not into AB InBev products in the first place but I would prefer Hoegaarden Grand Cru over this one.
