3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dal birrificio Les 3 Fourquets che produce l’ottima Lupulus, questa birra bianca è perfetta per l’estate. Un bel colore giallo molto opaco con una schiuma poco compatta ma persistente, aroma leggero di agrumi. Assaggiandola la freschezza del frumento e degli agrumi sono gli aspetti più marcati. In linea con una Hoegaarden direi.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Labelled as LES 3 FOURQUETS... Draft, tapped 2 days earlier at The Drafting Room in Exton PA. Supposedly there are only 50 or less kegs of this stuff shipped annually to the USA. My lucky night. Awesome. Deceiving looking, with a murky off-white color. A complex bouquet and flavor - redolent of yeast, palate subtley sweet & fresh. The experience + satisfaction of drinking this rare White was greatly appreciated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, at Antwerp’s Bierpassion weekend. Hazy yellow to light orange colour with a large white head. Little sweet yeasty aroma, some citrus hints. Ful body, quiet strong for a white beer (is it??) Nice balanced finish, somewhat alcoholic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear light orange beer with a nice light orange head. The aroma is sweet and very wheaty, but also with some notes of yeast and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of oranges, coriander, peach, and alcohol, leading to a dry wheaty end. It has a nice body. I like the present Hoegaarden Grand Cru better than this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow coloured with a lasting white head.
Fruity aroma with notes of spices and citrus.
Fruity flavour of spices citrus and hops.
Very good witbier, tastes more like an abbey tripel than a witbier.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught: A full-bodied, flavorful beer, this beautiful offering scored with me right from the start. Packing a gorgeous aroma and a massive appeal to the buds, I found myself craving a refill as soon as my glass stood empty. In my view vastly superior to Hoegaarden’s Grand Cru and quite addictive to boot.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, In de Wildeman. Hazy yellow color, medium head. Aroma of hop, bit sour, some hay and citrus. Taste is not as banana like as a true belgian white, and the recreation of the Hoegaarden Grand Cru is also not a succesfull description. It is somewhat in between a Grand Cru and a La Chouffe, at least that’s how I would remember this brew.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
It’s a gods gift this beer. The aroma’s in the nose are grass/hay like, the colour is like a Belgian White but more crisp, the palate is fruity and able to concour even sharp tones of chorizo, and the aftertaste lingers on and on with very subtile bitters.
A must for every beerlover.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale yellow, small white head. Wheaty, yeasty nose. Sweetish, wheaty. A bit peppery aftertaste. Refreshing. Funny that when I rated this I made a note that this is "sweetend version of Hoegaarden" :)
