Belgian wheat beer from Hoegaarden, a little village in the province of Flemish Brabant. Hoegaarden was first brewed in 1445.
Brewing Hoegaarden is no simple matter. Respecting the unique brewing process and carefully mixing the finest natural ingredients is the only way to obtain the intriguing character and surprisingly refreshing finish. Hoegaarden is fermented twice but isn’t filtered, creating its cloudy appearance and smooth texture. The beer’s taste is soft, light and slightly sweet and sour, accompanied by subtle citrus notes.
Hoegaarden roots can be traced back to 1445, when its unique recipe was developed. Prior to this new recipe, wheat beers were quite sour; that is, until the Hoegaarden monks started experimenting with orange peel and coriander from the colony Curaçao: a divine discovery that led to the world-famous Hoegaarden recipe and unique citrus flavour.
