Six of us got free pints of this as a promotion in Waterford.I thought it was
terrible, as did the others. Only one guy managed more than a half pint of
it.I'm tired of looking up poor beers (My opinion) on this website andfinding
rave reviews. Is there something wong with me? Do I hang around with
idiots?Sometimes I just don't know...

As an englishman, I must say that most of these foreign entriesare reading like
perverse limericks, but I also must say thatHoegaarden is one of the finest
tipples I have sampled in mymany years. It's a great wheat beer and I'm
currently enjoyinga (poured) bottle of Grand Crue which, for being a
higherpercentage beer, is very palatable for it's strength andis a beer I could
easily see myself becoming inebriated upon.I'm glad to see this beer is enjoying
a reasonable level ofsuccess in Great Britain, as well as seeing it in most
largesupermarkets, i've seen it on tap in a few pubs (which I mustsay is a most
pleasant surprise)I do hope all people in Britain and beyond will sample
thisfine brewery's product and embrace Hoegaarden as the finestwheat beer in
existance (though Coors Brewery's Blue Moonis an (almost) worthy contender),
further supporting the beer'sfurther appreciation throughout the lands.Please
excuse any spelling errors, I am rather drunk.

If I can name one beer as "the best",it would be no doubt Hoegaarden.There's no
better drink (be it beer or not),than a cold draught Hoegaarden!The best

I first experienced a Hoegaarden in a Manhattan Upper EastSide bar (Broadway
Dive). It hit me like a ton of bricks.The taste is unconventional and delicate.
Light with anuncanny citrus taste to it. I drink it whenever I can findit.Try it
once if you have the opportunity, even if youend up disliking it, you'll admit
that it was worththe experience.

Celis White is actually manufactured in Michigan, by Michigan Brewing Company in
Weberville. They were able to buythe recipe off of a company who had originally
recovered theold recipe

Incredible beer. Once you start a session drinking hoegaarden, stickwith it, as
a switch to ordinary lager will knock you sick. Hoegaardengives a strange buzz
unlike other beers. big octagonal glass getsheavy after a few.

Not too great a beer, but its not horrible either. It is a unique (andaquired)
taste. We get it on tap here in Norway (at the bar in Osloscentral train
station), but its quite expensive (about 7 U.S. bucks aglass).

Very nice and refreshing especially in summertime. We even get it ontap here in

independent Limburg brewery in Hastings (east coastof North Island NZ), they
also do a tasty Weizenbock...

Hoegaarden is, without a doubt, the finest Belgian white aleavailable. The
color is really a platinum (if you know whatI mean). It makes the most
beautiful glass of beer. Coldand frosty, with the traditional unfiltered
cloudiness.BEAUTIFUL!

There are more then two 'types' of this beer:1. the picture shows the original
'white': De Witte' (in Flemish)2. another one that is even better is the 'Grand
Cru'. This is a stonger beer 8%. 3. the 'Speciale' is only available from
october untill the end of februari. It has a mouty taste.4. 'Den Das' is the
latest typ: it is brewed according to an oldrecepy. You just have to trie this
one!5. 'Julius' is just like the 'Grand Cru' a stronger beer (7.5% I think).6.
'Verboden vrucht' (Forbidden Fruit if you like it in English) is another
strong one!7. finally 'Bndicte'. I have never got the honor to taste this one
but I certainly will one day!Very important when you drink a white beer like
'De Witte' or a CelisWhiteis when you pore (I hope this is the right word) in to
your glas you have to stop when there is still a little bit in thebotlle. Then
you shake the bottle a bit so that the yeast cells on the bottom are 'dissolved'
and then you do the remaining beer in yourglass.The result has to be a really
cloudy beer, you may not be able to seethrough your glass!Ask Pierre Celis,
you'll see.This method is forbidden when you pore fruit beers!I hope I could be
of some assistance.Any comments or questions about Belgian beers?Just write
toKoen.Trappeniers@student.kuleuven.ac.be
