Where to Dig Up More About This Beer

Stoopkenstraat 46
Hoegaarden , Belgium

Brain Damage Quotient = 4.9 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 11.2 

Postmortem Brew Review
Cloudy yellow color as found in most wheat based beers.
Spice notes throughout.
Delicate, soapy head.
to medium bodied with good flavor and no bitter finish. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This one claims to be the "original" Belgian wheat beer. Also states, "...brewed with spices...unfiltered, naturally cloudy..." on the label. All true statements of the drink I sampled. Typical of most wheat or wit-beers is that it uses the traditional ingredients of water, yeast, wheat, hops, coriander and dried Curaçao orange peel, also known as Laraha.

It is a wonderfully well balanced wheat beer and does not possess the 'wheatiness' of flavor found in other wit-beers. We've sampled the 'spade' in Spaten. Now we have the other tool from the shed; the Hoe! Can you dig it?
