Hoegaarden MUCH better in NYC than west coast
« on: July 24, 2010, 03:56:27 PM »
I fell in love with hoegaarden in Europe, a few years before wit biers took off in the USA. The last several times I have had one I thought that it was very good, but not worth the price and not any better than many of my home-brewed wits. Here I am on the east coast (love this city) and it is so much fresher and more vibrant and spicily complex. It is really insane how different this beer is fresh. It is even a lighter shade of pale than It is back home (Ive had it all over the west coast from Portland down to San Diego and it is always just very good).

Are you on vacation? I've noticed that all beers taste better when not working  ;D
