The original of its class, Hoegaarden is one of my all time favorites. Little flecks of yeast churn at the bottom of its cloudy yellow pour. The creamy white head has delicious aromas of cloves, bananas, and lemon citrus. It tastes initially tart and then sweetens to light grains, citrus fruit, and spices. Its light body is extremely refreshing and finishes on a lingering sweet note. Hoegaarden is quite possibly the most drinkable, summer thirst quenching beer I've ever had.
