OK, I've tried Hoegaarden a few times and this bottle is not the best. I don't know if it's old or what, but I'm going to skew this review slightly because usually it's great. It has a really different color than most beers, kind of like a cream soda life saver, white with some yellow for those who haven't had that particular lifesaver. Anyway, it is hazy which is befitting of it's style. The smell is very original too, kind of fruity, but I couldn't tell you the fruit. Maybe grapefruit, or some kind of grapes. I think the taste is great! It's got alot of body from the wheat, with a tart finish on the tongue. Just the right amount of carbonation too.
