I am a little biased... Hoegaarden is my favorite beer, so to find this on the shelves was an absolute treat. It pours a cloudy gold color, and smells a little more pungent than regular Hoegaarden, and more than other witbiers. The head depends on the pour... a direct pour will yeald a large foamy head while a tilted pour will yeald a small-moderale sized head. The lacing on the glass is very intricate regaurdless of the pouring style. The taste is similar to other special summer witbiers, although it is much sweeter than many I have tasted. Member JETSBEER was correct in saying if you like regular Hoegaarden, then you will love this beer!

An amazing white beer from Hoegaarden. Take everything that you love about their original White Ale and take it to the next level and that is what you get with Hoegaarden Speciale! a super creamy yellowish/white pour with a gigantic fluffy, pillowy head. An aroma that is just bursting with lemon, spices, and grains. A lucious taste with w afull creamy, mouthfeel, and to top it all off. A very high gluggability factor.
An A+ beverage by Hoegaarden(maybe interbrew has only gotten to the original white ale so far!!!;-)

very nice brew, deeper yellow and even hazier than their regular white, smooth citrusy and spicy, decent body and decent flavour, highly enjoyable. Would maybe drink this over regular Hoegaarden.
