Who doesn’t like the occasional sinful indulgence to have a gala time! And what better way to celebrate those moments than to down your tension in a tall glass of chilled beer! I have often enjoyed one of these soft n tasty alcoholic beverages during my rare leisure moments. A few days ago, I was spending some quality time with my family at the Holiday Inn Kolkata and I suddenly got intrigued by my son to have and enjoy some Belgian Hoegaarden Wheat Beer. I was blown away at the rich taste of this fine beverage and couldn’t stop myself from putting my thoughts into words.
All about the Belgian Hoegaarden Beer:
I got myself a 375ml bottle for just INR 550, and for the quality on offer, the price seemed pretty reasonable. What amazed me the most was the lightness of the beer, despite the enriching taste of the hard-hitting alcohol inside it. I could tell that the beer had been processed with care and was intrigued to dig deeper into the brand to learn more about their history. Here is what I found out!
This beer originates from the exotic corners of Belgium, where it is believed that monks were churning out delicious alcoholic beverages as early as the 14th century. In a village called Hoegaarden, is this famous brewery that has floored the world with the quality of beer that they manage to provide for the price. It was started by a milkman, but now it has gone on to become one of the giants in the alcohol industry, delivering to over 70 nations. Although they produce various types of beer, their wheat beer variant is the most popular. From the taste of one chilled sip, I could tell why! The beer is the perfect companion for the thirsty tired soul that needs some refueling before getting back to routine again!
Their other forms of beer include Rose, Citron, Julius, Forbidden Fruit, and many other beverages that contain somewhat the same alcohol content. I was impressed with what I had, and am definitely trying this brand out one more time when I have the opportunity.
A simple beer would have been enough to win me over. So you can imagine my plight when I tasted the excellence of this one, a brand that is over six centuries and fifty years old! It seems practice does make a man perfect!
