Hopped and Bothered; Hoegaarden

Hoegaarden -- Original White Ale.
Alcohol 4.9%. Brief scent of carbonation and cloves. Coriander tang. Head dissipates quickly. Very cloudy. Wheat texture. Orange peel kiss on the tongue. Watery texture. Very light, almost creamy. The grapefruit is stronger here, coupled with said coriander and lemon tart. Finishes light, almost dry. The alcohol is not strong, and it doesn't balance the final finish very well.

Buy if: you want a light Belgium.

Overall: great scent and taste, but a lackluster finish.

3 out of 5.
