DATE REVIEWED: May 22, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hoegaarden tumbler... OCCASION: freshman baseball--officially over, and marking the day with the official wit... APPEARANCE: pours a pale, golden yellow, unfiltered and misty with bubbles; white uneven head rings the glass; attractive... AROMA: profound yeast and lemon zest; a suggestion of citrus, but not enough to overpower... PALATE: bubbly, refreshing almost medium-bodied; a bit fizzy too; unlike most wits, it supplies a lingering aftertaste... TASTE: tart--banana! lemon is secondary, and some citric, slightly acidic elements in the aftertaste--this is what warm nights were made for...OVERALLL: I recall being really turned on to this beer in 20003,, when traveling through Europe in record-breaking heat drove Shan and I toward sidewalk cafes and alcohol that refreshed; cutting through the sentiment, Hoegaarden does indeed refresh with enough character to be sought after among the myriad of summer ales....

Cloud yellow colour with a good frothy white head. The aroma is a citrus, banana, wheat malt and dough yeast. Taste is similar with accentuated banana and yeast and a hint orange peel to give the very slightest bitter finish. Average carbonation with a light to medium refreshing body.
