Large white head, body cloudy. It smells like apples and banana. Great beer overall.

I have been a fan of Hoegaarden for a good while now, and this is one of my favorites from them. Nice and fresh citrus flavor, this beer is extremely refreshing. Great beer for a nice summer day.

By far the best of the summer beers. Crisp and refreshing. Goes great with seafood dishes.

Had my first one on tap in an Irish Pub in Paris. Larger head than typical from a bottle, and much fresher tasting than what is available locally. Nice balance of citrus and coriander. I have yet to taste anything close to this. Probably my favorite beer when I can find it on tap. From a bottle it just doesn’t seem as fresh and I often get a metal aftertaste.

Sets the standards in wheat beers. Pale golden in color, with a fruity, bread, wheat aroma. Great flavours of banana, citrus and yeast. Great beer to relax and kick back.

This is my favorite Belgian white. The appearance is pleasantly golden and cloudy. It tastes fruity with coriander spice and has the most unique finish. It’s almost as if the taste wraps up and disappears after you’ve swallowed, compelling you to take the next sip. This will surely win over beginner beer drinkers.

Hoegaarden is synonymous with summertime. Wherever indulging in this blond elixir, it’ll put a little sunshine in your day. This is the hallmark of white beers.

Tap from Midtown in the Chicago Loop. I apparently got the bottom of the barrel as after two pints they were out. Served with a lemon in an ale glass. Pretty middle of the road Belgian White Ale. Cloudy, but crisp. I would order it again, but wasn’t overwhelmed by it.
