I'm a white beer fan and Hoegaarden has it's own flavour which is stronger than for example Tucher or such. A must try beer.

Refreshing beer, very light with a slight citrus taste. Would drink it again.

Hoegaarden does some good Belgian beers for a large-scale brewery, and this is the most common one you'll find in bars and restaurants. It's a witbier, and it's pretty middle of the road for its kind, though certainly many have tried to copy it over the years because of its success. I think some of the local craft brews in the US have improved upon the original though.
