25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orane with a white head. Sweet corn, belgian yeast and slight spiced. Great sweetish flavour with just a minor spiced note a underlying yeast flavour. Creamy mouthfeel and mellow flavour into the finish. Soft. Nice.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet wheaty with notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet and sour wheaty. A boring beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Paler yellow and less hazy than the original Hoegaarden. Decent, white head. Marginally stronger, but exactly as refreshing and excellent. Still the typical witbier-notes, but I reckon this has less wheat and more barley. 160696

Bottled. Hazy yellow, big creamy head. Yeasty aroma, with fruity. Yeasty, bananaish and citric flavour. A bit better than the normal one.

omhper (19670) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy yellow. Stronger aroma of corander, cloves and orange peels. Sweet and rounded, firmly malty with notes of vanilla. Both flavourful and refreshing. Can Interbrew really brew a beer this brilliant?

22nd February 2008. When compared to normal Hoegaarden I found this crisper but less fruity. Refreshing!

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2008
Cloudy blond color, with a big head. It has a quite evident spicy aroma (cloves then coriander). The body is a bit rounder than other Wit beers, with some malt and wheat flavor and a delicate spicyness; there is still some sweetness and very light orange fruitness. Balanced. Pleasant.
