Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 75: Hoegaarden

"The original Belgian White Beer"


Pours an extremely pale yellow with some yeasty cloudiness. The head is medium-sized and fades slowly. Lots of carbonation in the glass.

First sip: Sweet malt, slight lemony sourness, a little bready yeast, a very faint bitterness at the end. Mouth-feel is medium and the carbonation is soft on the tongue.

I like this! It is so very drinkable and goes down easily and smoothly. It *is* a little gassy, but not too much. It has a very mild taste, especially when compared to the other Belgian beers I've had, but not so mild as to be bland.

This is a yummy beer. I can see myself drinking more of it in future.
