Beer nr2 : Hoegaarden

Hello bloggers,

My second beer i am going to talk about is Hoegaarden. Hoegaarden is a 4,9% white beer (wheat beer) brewed by Hoegaarden Brewery in Hoegaarden. Its origins date back to 1445. But because of the increasing popularity of lager beers, the last white beer brewery in Hoegaarden closed his doors in 1957. Pierre Celis, a milkman, decided some ten years later to try to revive the style. He began the new brewery in his hayloft. Celis used the traditional ingredients of water, yeast, wheat, hops, coriander and dried Curaçao orange peel known as Laraha. Hoegaarden is unfiltered and therefore cloudy in appearance. (also because of the wheat used.) Hoegaarden Brewery is owned by Anheuser-Busch Inbev.

My opnion: This is a nice beer for a hot summerday. It's fruity and very thirst-quenching. This is one of my favourites. It's drunk by many women, but not only by women. :)


  1. awesome. thanks for the info. so far I want to try both beers you have reviewed.

  2. Women's beer? I have to try that!

  3. Tried Hoegaarden few times and liked it for its citrus-y taste. overall good beer for the chillout summer nights
