The appearance of this beer is bar none. It is the typical cloudy wheat yellow beer. The smell of this beer is great with orange peel and corriander stereortypical of most other wheat beers. This beer usually comes with the perfect mount of head. If pouring this from a bottle use the instructions found on the side of the bottle stating how to pour the last 1/8 of the bottle into your glass after rolling it on its side. The mouthfeel is descent. Incredible drinkability. In Rome my friends and I used to have a bar in Campo De Fiori that we called the Hoegarrden Bar as it would serve incredibly sized drafts of this delicious nector for only five euros. This was a steal at the time in 2005 as most other drafts, including american imports were at least 5 euros as well.

Serving type: on-tap
