Bottle. Pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a fairly thick white head on it. Nose has a slight bit of citrus in there with quite a bit of the wheat flavor coming through. Taste is slightly sour and feels bubbly. Lots of citrus coming through. Easy drink, though.

Bottle 0,33L. Hazy yellow colour with small thick, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of yeasts, wheat, white bread, citrus, coriander and a little pepper. Slightly acetic mouthfeel with notes of citruses and coriander finishes slightly milky and crispy. Easy to drink, refreshing beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Although the complex and great aroma might draw one to a great flavour, the truth is that it doesn’t. Quite flavorless for the aroma and looks. But a good refreshing beer.

Subdued across the board. Seems like they were trying to recreate rather than create.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big, but quite fast dissapearing white head. Aroma is wheaty, sweet fruity. Flavour is spicy, fruity, wheaty, (could feel this after it was a little warmer) sweet and the begining then in the end it’s a bit dry and a small hint of bitterness

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. 33cl. Golden orange haze with a dense collar. Pour and soft orange and sour smell. Taste is medium, well-rounded of the malts and orange hints, sweet/lactic sour. Nice carbonated. Some spice and coriander in the finish. This is a very drinkable beer.
This how Hoegaarden tasted some 30 years ago. Fortunately Pierre Celis (Rest in Peace, Pierre) gave a recipe to St-Bernardus and I easily can say that this Belgian White is the best one you can find. It’s a fantastic beer together with seafood (oysters!) or fish, or just having a very nice drinkable beer joying together with friends.
