larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2006
Medium white head; hazy orange body. Deep, fruity, yeasty aroma with notes of sweetness and tropical fruit. Taste is deep, sweet tropical fruit with a bitter edge to it. Yeasty, wheaty notes. Some alcohol heat, inevitably. An excellent beer. (0.3l bottle.)

Furseth (2131) - Kunglv, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle: Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of citric,malty,citrus,flowery, and a nice seet finish. Flavor is almost the same, but it has a Viney ,citus,champagne mouth feeling. Lots of maly sweety feeling to. Nice long bitter finish. Medium body. Nice!!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Cloudy dark yellow body with many particles, medium white head. Fruity and coriander nose. Taste is halfway between a typical Strong Belgian (Chouffe, etc.) and a Hoegaarden White. Very yeasty, fruity notes, grassy. Probably use the same hops as the White, same dry flower finish with a mild bitterness reminding me of german-pilsners. Refreshing but strong. First time ever I had that beer. I really like the classic Hoegaarden White but I never went out of my way to have a Hoegaarden Grand Cru. I dont know, I wouldnt be tempted by a Guiness Special Edition or a Pilsner Urquell Grande Reserve either. My bad because the Hoegaarden Grand Cru is an excellent beer.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2006
Orange colored, plenty of obvious pieces of yeast. Little yellow head. Aroma is good with yeast, spices, fruits and obvious orange with mild alcohol. Flavor has more obvious alcohol, still not too much. Also some vinous tones, spices, yeast and fruits can be found. Medium to full bodied, crispy palated brew. This gets my best points for this brewery.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2006
Hazy yellow with large white foam. Aroma is yeasty with notes of lemon and orange. Taste is lemony and suprisingly fresh and clear. One might even say clean. Carbonation is quite perfect for this kind of beer. Not as strong as other wheats sometimes are. Great with a piece of white chocolate!

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
Pours hazy pale yellow with little white head ending as a thin film. Wheaty aroma with flowery tones. Quite full bodied from the wheat and the high alcohol. Not vinious but warming. Taste is sweet with very wheaty tones.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2006
I just really like this beer even though at the time of first tasting it was cold outside, night time and in the depths of winter. Not the kind of beer to be drunk in that season but eminently drinkable all the same. Roll on summer to match the aromatic flowery wheat malt nose and fluffy fresh head of this classic Belgian wheat beer.

Bottle. A beer you can drink again and again and on a hot sommerday it keeps you satisfied.

kiwinhants (6) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 3, 2006 does not count
330ml bottle chilled slightly in fridge. Poured with a nice fluffy white head and suitably golden and cloudy in the glass. Looked good enough to drink! Aroma not as strong as I expected, but usual Hoegaarden stuff. Pretty easy on the palate with a little lingering bitterness in the finish but nothing amazingly complex. Overall enjoyable, but doesnt leave me screaming for more.
