UPDATED: SEP 21, 2008 this has to be one of, if not favorite beers. Pours beautifully and produces a sweet, though not overpowering taste. Quite sweet and a strong alcohol presence. Can’t say enough about this, but to say I prefer it to Delirium and Duvel.

Dedollewaitor (15913) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2006
Unclear golden with fine white head. Aroma of yeast fruits(citrus) & spices. Ok filling texture. Wheat and spices dominates throughout and ends up with a bitter finish. Pleasant and good alternative to the regular Hoegaarden.

dj (603) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
Bottle, 330ml. A cloudy pale yellow colour with lots of suspended yeast particles, despite pouring carefully. Aroma is honey, yeast, berries and alcohol. Taste is more honey, yeast and alcohol. Somewhat sweet. A little sweet citrus and alcohol in the finish. Moderate carbonation. A pretty typical strong Belgian ale with nothing to make it stand out from the crowd.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Im not sure why the style isnt Belgian Wit, but thats fine. Ive been puzzled before. It pours a hazy straw body with a towering rocky head. The nose is full of yeast, corriander, tart citric fruits, and wheat. Light and dangerously easy to drink, considering the 8.7% ABV. It tastes of zest of orange, wheat, corriander, white peppers, grapefruit, and a drop or two of alcohol. Very nice. Refreshing.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2006
Poured a hazy orange/yellow colour with a thick, creamy head. Flavour and aroma comprised of mainly coriander and fruits. Quite spicy also. Great ale, although I will always prefer Hoegaarden White.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2006
Bottle. Amber / golden like colour with a lang lasting white head. Aroma was spice, coriander and some sweet notes as well. Flavour was sweet and ever so slightly bitter. Medium body. In my oppenion proberly the best Hoegaarden.
