The original Belgian white beer. Imported from Belgium. Unfiltered, naturally cloudy. Unique neck releases refreshing flavor. Hoegaarden takes its name from the village of Hoegaarden, in Belgium's Brabant Province where the brewing of white beer can be traced back to 1445. Hoegaarden owes 's distinctively refreshing taste and naturally cloudy appearance to a traditional blend of wheat, malted barley and a subtle hint of coriander and orange peel. The result is a beer that s remarkably easy to drink yet incredibly flavorful. Hoegaarden is traditionally enjoyed in its unique hexagonal glass, which draws out its distinctive flavor.
