Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2013
This beer clearly has its fans -- just take a look at some of the reviews here -- but I don't get it. Pours a dark golden yellow which isn't unappealing by itself, but doesn't seem to suit the style (which is presumably a Belgian Wit, which is presumably lighter.) The head vanishes very quickly. Nose of cooked grain, a little citrus, a little corn/fritos, maybe a touch of spice but that's stretching it -- really not much more than say a Yuengling with some lemon juice in it. Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick and gummy to my taste. Not much by way of flavor, does have a sharp finish that isn't unpleasant but I can't taste much of anything in the beer itself, certainly nothing I'd normally associate with a Belgian White. Best described as a Belgian Wit made by a company that never actually tried one -- just read a little bit about them in other books. Like if the Cold War was going on and Romania tried to brew one, based soley on reputation and what they could discover in libraries. It's kiinndda in the style, but it's a really bad stab at it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

josanguapo (1731) - SPAIN - AUG 16, 2017
From Hipercor. In Teku glass. At lunch, with fried potatoes + eggs and turkey steaks. Watery with so much if the usual orange peel/coriander/spices mix of the style that unpleases and makes it feel artificial and slow drinking. Generates low soapy foam that dissipates quickly, and isnt proper fpr the style but plenty very coppery

odlična! draga ga kupila u lidla i pogodila. Od onog sto sam pio podsjeća me na hoegaarden. ovj stil pive me posebno oduševljava. gusta, mutne bojee s pjenom koja ostavlja prsten. Voćna i pitka. vrh!

Very fruity aroma; peaches. Wheaty & Spicy. Yeasty (lots of gritty sediment). Fruity; peaches, citrus-orange. Fruity wheaty, not sweet, slight sour citrus fruity edge. Drinkable. Not bad at all.

A pseudoHooegaarden which has some of the attributes of the glorious original but suffers from a degree of blandness.

GuideDogSaint (1582) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 3, 2017
Cheap Thursday night pint on tap at the Faraday, Epsom. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt with a hint of banana and citrus. Orange taste. Thin finish. Not great.
