Beer Analysis – Hoegaarden

Hoegaarden Stubby

Name: Hoegaarden


Brewer: Hoegarden Brewery

Type: Ale – wheat beer

Style: Witbier (White Beer)

Region: Flanders region – Belgium



Brewers Description: The original wheat beer is the oldest and most famous of Hoegaarden’s range. When poured, it forms a soft, white creamy head and leaves a generous lacing on the glass. Its naturally cloudy, pale hue shimmers when viewed through the glass.

With an aroma of orange peel, coriander and spice, its characteristic taste is entirely unique: smooth, light-bodied, and simultaneously sweet and sour, with a subtle, spiced citrus flavour. Best served in its traditional hexagonal glass.

Hoegaarden is a fabulous drop, made in a town of the same name. It’s light and silky in the mouth with pleasant, lingering flavours. I get strong apricot necter flavours. This is not a session beer but one to be enjoyed with a meal or good company. I would reccomened this beer with cream sauce dishes or light fish like Flathead.
