Hoegaarden White Ale, Belgium – Most noted for its cloudy soft yellow color with white, high reaching head. The aroma is somewhat sweet with floral, Orange and Coriander mixing in a sophisticated bouquet. Almost juicy, sweet and tart, it opens with Coriander which quickly introduces Orange and other citric flavors. Hops remain appropriately low for this style. Body is medium as is the carbonation. It finishes sweet, citric and refreshing. For more on the Wit style visit the NABA Blog via the following link.
