Hoegaarden Grand Cruz

One of my friend has introduced Hoegaarden beer brand for sometime now and I finally got my hand to one of their product, the Hoegaarden Grand Cruz. It's not cheap and I got it for RM12.49 per bottle from a supermarket here.

Hoegaarden is a village in Belgium which has been known for its witbieren (white beer) since the Middle Ages.

There is hardly any secret with this brand. It is brewed with the standard ingredients as with any other beers in the market. However, Grand Cruz has slightly higher alcohol content at 8.5%

It forms a moderate head when poured to a cup (not so visible here as I was too late to capture it). Its appearance appear to be cloudy peach colour.

I have to say I am impressed with Hoegaarden Grand Cruz. This beer don't feel bitter at all. In fact it is smooth and has a fruity flavour with delicate hints of citrus and vanilla. I bet the girls will love this beer.
