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.

I’m not sure why the style isn’t Belgian Wit, but that’s fine. I’ve 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.Borup (16544) - Albertslund, DENMARK - OCT 27, 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 (4258) - 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. yngwie (17557) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
Bottled. Unclear, golden-orange with a white head. Spice, citrus, alcohol, banana and some wheat in the aroma. The flavor has spice, banana, alcohol, yeast and notes of wheat, with a nice bitterness in the finish. Medium to full body. (060928) rane (1112) - Nibe, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2006
Unclear golden colour with creamy long lasting white head. Nice aroma of coriander and citrus fruits.
Taste with notes of coriander and a sweet whitebeer style. Much carbonation. Sweet and long lasting after taste.
Reminds me a lot of the Hoegaarden white beer. I actually prefer the lower alcohol content, but this is also nice.
