Poured from a bottle into a standard beer-glass.
First white-beer I have seen! Very interesting smoky pale yellow appearance. Head stayed around for a good while.
Smells - tons of apples, slight fruity smokiness, smells like dessert.
Taste - again with the apples. Lots of smoky characteristic with floral notes. Mouthfeel is not spectacular, mild carbonation and a bit thin.
I'm not really familiar with this type of beer. I had it next to a red ale and Hoegaarden really knocked my socks off - I went in totally uninitiated and I think the experience suffered a little. But I shall try it again, I think I will appreciate it later...
