Hoegaarden is synonymous with white beer and the Belgian examples are all patterned after it. In the 1800 s Hoegaarden was one of the most notable brewing centers in Belgium with approximately 30 breweries producing White beer. Times changed, along with beer drinkers tastes turning to the new clear lagers. In 1957, the last white beer brewery, Tomsin went out of business. Then came the oppressively hot summer of 1965. The villagers of Hoegaarden missed the refreshing local wit beers. That s where Pierre Celis came to their rescue. He was a milkman who lived next to the original white beer brewery and had worked there from time to time. He resurrected the old recipe and began brewing Hoegaarden white beer on an old farm. News spread and the original Wit beer was reborn stronger than ever. He named his brewery De Kluis, which means monastery, in honor of the village s 15th century brewers. Hoegaarden enters with a dense, snow white head cascading Belgian lace into a hazy, soft yellow, shimmering beer. The aroma arrives on the nose with wheat, orange citrus fruits, a hint of coriander and hop spiciness. Very refreshing, the sharp, sweet-sour flavor is dry with light orange notes, ending with a lingering bitterness with a slight sour tang. It has a nice balance and is well spiced but not overpowering. If this beer is cellared at 45-48 degrees (7-12 C) the beer will shimmer even more, attaining. in brewery terms, a double shine. Brew Hoegaarden for the summer, you will not find a more pleasing and delightful beer.

This clone recipe was created in 2000.
