Hope you all don’t mind me writing about beer…
It’s been a fun, busy summer for me. Seems like I’ve had a lot of social events to attend, which is always exciting. In the midst of all of these events, I became re-acquainted with one of my favorite beers…and now there’s no turning back.
I’ve always been a “light” beer drinker, but tasting Hoegaarden changed that. I first tried Hoegaarden about a year ago at The Pub in Crestview Hills Town Center. And I fell in love with it. Lately I’ve been buying it to enjoy at home.
Hoegaarden is a wheat beer from Belgium. I think this beer has a very different taste. With a touch of coriander and a hint of orange peel, the flavor is sweet and spicy at the same time. It is an unfiltered beer and therefore a bit cloudy in appearance. If you get it out on tap, Hoegaarden is served in its traditional hexagonal glass with an orange slice.
Hoegaarden is very refreshing so it’s one of those beers that’s perfect for a warm summer day. Wonder if we’ll have any more of those.
When I first started buying Hoegaarden, it was not widely available. But I’ve noticed it more in area liquor stores and even in some grocery stores. The downside is I’ve never seen this beer on sale. It’s typically $9.99 a six-pack.
This is not really a review, but I’m gonna give it a big HAPPY face anyway!
