3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An enjoyable beer though not one that I feel differs entirely from the original Hoegaarden.
Orange appearance with a citrusy aroma to match.
All in all an enjoyable if not outstanding witbier.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra flaske på Cardinal, DSJT nov-14: som den vanlige Hoegaarden (dvs kjedelig), bare med litt mer av alt. Forgettable, og slett ikke et juleøl.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Citrus and yeast aroma. Very little foam. Haven’t had a regular one for a while though i can’t figure out why this one is special. Could be a refreshing drink in summer but not an interesting beer.
