Capa (3078) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Hazy straw color with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is nice. Spices, yeast, banana, malt. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the cirus and banana really coming through. Finishes with some yeast spiciness and a somewhat alcoholic finish. Mouth is sorta thin. Well hidden alcohol. Pretty solid, a winner.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 16, 2007
Praha. The normal Hoegaarden is watery close to this, that has much more flavor and body..................................Praga. A Hoegaarden "normal" fica aguada perto desta, que tem muito mais sabor e corpo.

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2007
A tad disappointing, but only because I like the standard Hoegaarden so much. 8.7% hidden cleverly. Oranger and cloudier than the standard. Nice head. Rather drinkable overall.

Pours a pale golden body wich have brown cloud of yeast in it. Larger particles of yeast is floating around to. A small froathy white that has marks of yeast lays on the top. Aroma is sour and yeasty. Flavor is fruity and yeasty. Palate is refresing.

wetherel (1873) - Cupertino, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Tried from $7 bottle at convent-garden in Machida, Tokyo, Japan. Hoegarden seems to advertise more in Japan. 1 finger head. Light color. Fruity pear aroma, with some corriander, possibly acetylhyde. Clean refreshing taste, like red barn, except worse. I like it more, the more I drink, but I dont know why.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2007
Spice, herbs. Sweet brown sugar and grape aroma. Cloudy appearance with a thin head. Surprisling smooth texture, flavour of spice with a good bitterness. Metallic finish. Again I feel much better beers available of this type.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Golden, slightly hazy with a rather nice head and god lace. The aroma is inviting with sweetness and citrus. The flavour is fruity-sweet, and its the citrus that takes the lead in the dance, but I also see the melon and flowers joining the ball. Its a very harmonic and nice Belgian beer.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle -- Cloudy orange brew with lots of lees, little visible carbonation and a medium sudsy white head with little retention or lacing. Aroma has lots of oranges and spices. Strong alcohol in the flavour with the spices and oranges almost in the background to it. Reminds me a bit of oil of cloves. Pleasant enough but theres nothing really special enough about this beer to justify its high price tag (in Oz, at least).

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2007
No scent. Strong ale. Very similar to Duvel in many ways. Strong and citrus and simple. Not very complex, but good at what it is.
