Hoegaarden Grand Cru

Type: wheat beer
Origin: Hoegaarden, Belgium
Price: €2.70

This is the last beer I had at the Snuffel Hostel in Bruges, and it was a fantastic one. They refer to this as the "Nobelist beer in the Hoegaarden Brewery". This beer has quite an orangish color and the smell and taste impart more orange-ness. The smell is very sour like orange juice and the taste is exactly like Yotz! candy, even with the fizziness in the center (if you never were fortunate enough to enjoy Yotz!, go to 7-11 and buy some. That shit was awesome). Also coming in is a very distinctive toffee yeast flavor, making this beer just plain good.
