It’s a gods gift this beer. The aroma’s in the nose are grass/hay like, the colour is like a Belgian White but more crisp, the palate is fruity and able to concour even sharp tones of chorizo, and the aftertaste lingers on and on with very subtile bitters. A must for every beerlover.

Labelled as LES 3 FOURQUETS... Draft, tapped 2 days earlier at The Drafting Room in Exton PA. Supposedly there are only 50 or less kegs of this stuff shipped annually to the USA. My lucky night. Awesome. Deceiving looking, with a murky off-white color. A complex bouquet and flavor - redolent of yeast, palate subtley sweet & fresh. The experience + satisfaction of drinking this rare White was greatly appreciated.

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2006
Draught: A full-bodied, flavorful beer, this beautiful offering scored with me right from the start. Packing a gorgeous aroma and a massive appeal to the buds, I found myself craving a refill as soon as my glass stood empty. In my view vastly superior to Hoegaarden’s Grand Cru and quite addictive to boot.

skortila (4601) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2005
Mostlikely I had this one on tap last night. At the bar they called thee brew 3fourquet... Well there are more fourquets. When I read the descriptions of others, it was this one. Aroma was yeasty, citrussy, spices. Much triple like indeed. Hazy, yellow coloured with a firm, white, lasting head. Taste is sweet and fresh. Yeasty, citric (oranges and lemon). I would not identify this one as a belgian white. Quite strong on the alcohol. (hidden though). Balanced taste. Quite pleasant.

joergen (21291) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2006
Draft. Hazy yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma with notes of spices and citrus. Fruity flavour of spices citrus and hops. Very good witbier, tastes more like an abbey tripel than a witbier.

JorisPPattyn (8013) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2005
Draught Good white head, fast gone; hazy grain-yellow, milky colour. Coriander, wheat and citrus nose. Fruity (citrus), wheat and coriander again in the taste, rather sweet. Just a little sourishness from the fruity character. Slick MF, well filled. This serious body is the only thing that betrays the real ABV, as in comparison to an ordinary white. Once, Hoegaarden GC was the ONLY beer I could recognise on any blind tasting. InBev professionaly ruined it, but this, IMO, is not the same neither - it’s more like a super-strenght original Hoegaardse witte on draught.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2005
one of the better newly introduced beers of BPW6 in antwerp. does somebody know how much alc. this contains? because i think it’s stronger than ijwit. anyway i liked it a lot. hazy lightyellow beer with irregular thin head. aroma: coriander, citrus(mainly lemon) and something described as meaty(other spices?). taste: oranges, lemon, coriander, sweetish and sourish. finish is alcohol warming. mf is medium thick. i hope it becomes available very soon!

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2006
Draught, at Antwerp’s Bierpassion weekend. Hazy yellow to light orange colour with a large white head. Little sweet yeasty aroma, some citrus hints. Ful body, quiet strong for a white beer (is it??) Nice balanced finish, somewhat alcoholic.

TBone (12958) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2005
Draught
Hazy pale yellow, small white head. Wheaty, yeasty nose. Sweetish, wheaty. A bit peppery aftertaste. Refreshing. Funny that when I rated this I made a note that this is "sweetend version of Hoegaarden" :)

caesar (5295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2005
Draft, In de Wildeman. Hazy yellow color, medium head. Aroma of hop, bit sour, some hay and citrus. Taste is not as banana like as a true belgian white, and the recreation of the Hoegaarden Grand Cru is also not a succesfull description. It is somewhat in between a Grand Cru and a La Chouffe, at least that’s how I would remember this brew.
