bottle poured into pint glass.
I've had Hoegaarden previously on several occasions, but finally decided it was time to ponder this unique beer.
The appearance certainly let's you know that this is not your average beer. Very pale. Like watered-down lemonade. Cloudy [since it is unfiltered]. Quite startling to look at. A nice white head. Good retention.
The smell is also unique: Orange. Bananas. Clove. All sorts of spices jump out. Sweet.
The taste follows the smell: spices, tangerine, banana. Refreshing.
I found the mouthfeel quite refreshing. There is ample carbonation which gave it a very cleansing on the palate.
Overall, a very drinkable beer. Nice and light for a warm summer day.
Serving type: bottle
