A 500-year old recipe perfected by merry monks, who took orange peel, coriander and herbs from sunny Curacao, has turned this wheat beer into a sweet beer. Pouring Hoegaarden is like opening the curtains and letting sunlight fall into your glass; twice fermented but never filtered, it’s a light yellow and naturally murky affair, and the soft foam adds a cloudy finish. Sun? Clouds? Enough about weather, what about the taste? Light, slightly sweet and sour, and with subtle citrus notes - what’s not to love?
