Hoegaarden Beer, Original Belgian Wheat
Imported from Belgium. Hoegaarden is unfiltered and bottle-fermented and should have a cloudy appearance and a thick, creamy head. Hoegaarden is best enjoyed from its characteristic hexagonal glass which helps to keep the beer colder for longer. Hoegaarden is the mother of all Belgian-style wheat beers. The beer has roots going back to 1445, when in the Belgian village of Hoegaarden, a wheat beer recipe was developed in which traditional ingredients were balanced with spicy coriander and a hint of orange peel giving Hoegaarden its surprisingly smooth and highly refreshing taste. 4.9% alc/vol.
