Hoegaarden is a Belgian White Ale with an aroma of curacao orange peel with coriander and spice. Brewing in the village of Hoegaarden Belgium, has been a way of life since 1318. By the 15th century, Begarden monks settled in the area and began brewing Belgian white (or wit) ales. By the end of the 19th Century, the village boasted more than 35 breweries, although it was inhabited by only 2000 people. Hoegaarden’s characteristic taste is unique: smooth, light-bodied, sweet and sour, with a subtle, spiced citrus flavour.
