xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Very good tasting beer. Had a little bit fuller body than Hoegaarden White. A very good beer, even if it is from interbrew.

bkurtz (1078) - MOROCCO - JUN 29, 2006
Poured cloudy golden with a large, creamy white head. Theres citrus and spice. Well balanced and smooth with a warming sensation (alcohol). A little sweet, but a great brew.

mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Bottled. Hazy light yellow in colour. It has a rich an creamy massive white head. Lacings. The flavour is yeasty and wheaty. Yeast is what mostly strikes thru in the aftertaste and theres a dry mothfeel as well.

RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 16, 2006
Pours a cloudy yellowy colour, white head, fades. Alcohol predominately in the nose, syrupy smell, some spices. Flavour is syrupy, alcohol. Mouthfeel is strange, fine grit maybe, mouth coating. Finish is slightly bitter, hoppy.

ps71 (19) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 330 ml brown bottle. Alc. 8,5% vol. Large white head, that quickly fades away. Amber? Cloudy. Alcohol, toffee and banana aromas. Mouth-warming and mouthcoating. Flavors of sugars and alcohol. Complex aroma, but not a very complex-tasting beer. Contains yeast sediment.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
Beautiful to look at and smell, but flavour-wise it really is just a jacked-up version of the regular old Ho. Somewhat sweeter and heavier on the spice, with a strong familiar yeastiness. Well-carbonated and yields a great head, but I find the overly full mouthfeel distracting. Long finish is quite citrussy and bit hoppy.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Lot expiration was stamped: 22//02/07. Sampled in Ieper. Nice huge initial head with good initial lacing that rolled away with the tilt of the glass. Pour was golden and cloudy yellow. Aroma was sweet and strong, with the alcohol also detectable. Flavor was much of the same, although the alcohol wasnt too bad. Spices, coriander, and other flavors detected. A very nice beer.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2006
Dark golden coloured beer with a small white head, lively carbonation. Sweet malty aroma. Sweey matly taste, ends pretty dry. Quite fizzy, mediumbodied, slightly grainy towards the end with a dash of alcohol. Not very elegant or special, but it suffices.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2006
Orange-yellow colour, lots of sprankling, average white head, and a lot of yeast at the bottom of the bottle%. Fruity, sweet malty aroma, herby, rather dry, dough with a light yeasty alcoholic touch. Full body, lots of carbonation. Finish is sweet-bitter, ending rather dry and just a little alcoholic. An average one.

macleod (7) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2006 does not count
Smooth and fruity taste. Sweet aroma with a yeast/fruit aftertaste perfect on a hot day sitting in a beer garden. A few of these and youll be feeling all summery.
