Hoegarden – Witbier

GS6A2761Wit beer can be tracked back to being brewed in the middleages in the village of Hoegaarden in Belgium. There have been many breweries, fires, closures etc and the the brand have been bought and sold numerous times between large breweries in new times. The man behind Celis White brewed in Texas, America was also the owner of Hoegaarden before he sold it and moved to America.

I bought this wit beer in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 5 Euro for a 750ml bottle at 4,9%.

Light yellow unfiltered colour.

Head comes off with big white foam of fine bubbles.

Aroma is powerful with a lovely fruit and some floral tones to it.

Balanced CO2, Good fruit and floral tones to the taste. After taste is sweet and lightens out a little watery.

Overall rating 80 / 100
