Bottle 6C. A little darker than normal Hoegaarden. Bready aroma with lemon and spices. Sweeter than it too, with much more of a bready yeast character. Some apricot and banana. Very soft mouthfeel. Spices are there at the fairly crisp end. Bit of bitterness there too. A bit more going on than the regular version but at slight cost to the refreshment angle. Pretty good and hit the spot on a 40C day.

MichaelAwesome (5718) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. In that case this one ist just another Hoegaarden. Yeast in dominance, nice cloudy colour and that´s it. Still a quality beer but no burner.

Nice cloudy yellow color with a thick white head. Average carbonation, medium body. Aromas are spices, white flowers and fruits (banana, peach). Tasty and refreshing.

McTapps (5732) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Belgium and shared with MichaelBruch. Light, milky yellow colour with low but steady head. Taste of sweet malt, light yeast, green bananas and wet grass. Easy and nice to drink but no burner.

Medium white head. Cloudy light orange colour. Very fruity aroma with hints of apple and pear. Pleasantly fruity taste and a yeasty palate with, again, hints of apple and pear. Excellent!

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
19th Oct 2012: bottle in ’t Puur Genot, a strange irish type bar in Diest. Noticed the advertising card on the table when we poured into the pub from it’s outside area when the rain started: decided to risk one. Cloudy, murky and misty: once I’d cleaned the glass I poured the beer in, it too was cloudy, murky and misty. No head to talk of, just a few bubbles exploding on the surface. Usual Hoegaarden lemony/orangey/citrusy notes: whats special about this speciale then? certainly not the smell. Tasted very simular too (as the normal brew): they may have added some sweeter fruit syrup into the brew to make it less tart and refreshing, would like to compare side by side with the original Hoegaarden. Not unpleasant, but not great either: a kind of sweeter less fizzy Hoegaarden in my eyes.

McWorta (995) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 18, 2012
Hazy bright golden colour with not head. Develops wheat aromas which predominate. Light prickling on the tongue which a soft slick bit sticky texture to it. Well balanced on the palate with a medium body. The finish is fading coherently and arrives on a level where it lingers on the back of the palate for a while. Interesting.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2012
25 cl. bottle purchased discount @ local mini-supermarket // close to expired // bottle @ home // looks quite nice, honey amber with a reasonable creamy white head // smells very sweet artificial lemon, it is almost like lemonade, some minor wheat, coriander and honey as well but it is mainly that lemon that gets me // thick sweet wheat with artificial lemon. some cleaning products, lots of thick banana, like puree, sweet grains,bitter floral with some coriander, very sweet honey sauce, bitter, sweet at the time in the back, rather ugly and chemical // tad syrupy body with too much carb. // bit yucky but doable

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
0.25l bottle. This is a deep hazy honey colored beer with a nice big and lacing white head. It’s quite wheat-sweet on the aroma, ripe and spicy bananas really dominate this one - almost like a banana puré, but there is also a tone of coriander. Not bad at all actually. The flavor is much what you can expect of a wit from Hoegaarden. It’s well wheaty and definitely spiced with coriander. Not any banana like in the aroma. In the end it’s quite sweet and almost pepper spicy. It has a average carbonation level and it’s medium-bodied. Quite a tasty one, and something I definitely would buy again if it was a bit more available. 06.06.2012
