3.8
Geiserich (4621) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 19, 2006
Aroma with notes of flowerly fruits, candy, spices (cloves) and alcohol. Rich malty, sweetness with big flavor of oranges. Acid, strong alcohol and cointreau notes.

3.3
rw4244 (134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2006
33cl Bottle. Thick, cloudy amber orange colour, with a fairly bubbly white head. Complex aroma: cloves, lemon, and a general rich sweetness. The lavour was tangy, fruity, with wheat hints - like a strong hoegaarden witbier. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel. I found the finish quite alcoholic/vinegary, accompanied by bitterness, which put me off, but then I am not a great fan of stronger beers. Quality in moderation.

whiterabbit (28) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2006
Enough to make a grown man cry! Fantastic on every level. Ratebeer readers, I recommend trying this with a nice peice of Salmon or other similar fish. This is figuratively and literally the top of the barrel.

3.8
jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Huge ivory head with cloudy golden body. The nose bears a strong aroma of coriander, honey and malts. The flavor was full of spice, clove, and was slightly sweet with notes of plum. The aftertaste was slightly bitter and peppery from the alcohol. Medium to full body. Moderate finish.

3.2
ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottled. Unclear yellow-orange with a small whitish head. Sweet, yeasty aroma with spice (coriander) and orange peel. Sharp, tart witbier flavor. Acidy finish after a smooth, creamy start. Malty. Strong spiciness is a plus but wears on me by the end. A little wood flavoring, too. Extra alcohol is appreciated, adds a punch. Nice one, but I’m not going to rave.

4.1
lgklotet (437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2006
Really good looking head, quite cloudy. Like a regular Hoegaarden, only more so.. One of my favourites.

3.5
Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - APR 26, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Muddy amber colour with a nice white head. Sweet aroma of fruit and yeast. Tasty fizzy flavour of spices, yeast and fruit, very nice but nothing overwelming.

3.9
Bewildebeeste (7) - Whitley Bay, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2006 does not count
33cl bottle. Pours to a slightly cloudy amber colour with decent head. Very interesting aroma, almost pearlike. Remarkably smooth for 8.5%, incredibly drinkable with a smooth, likeable aftertaste. It would be very easy to drink several of these, you really cannot taste the strength of this beer.

3.6
auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color. Spice and yeasty aroma. This had a nice citrus aftertaste. I actually prefer a normal Hoegaarded over this. But this is good.

3.7
gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" on November 29, 2005.
Lighter color than the "Verboden frucht" that I tried it alongside. Very nice smell and taste to it. Not a very big after taste, which make it a bit dangerous. I think it coluld easily be misstaken for a beer at 5%.
