DescriptionImported from Belgium. Hoegaarden is unfiltered and bottle-fermented and should have a cloudy appearance and a thick, creamy head. Hoegaarden is best enjoyed from its characteristic hexagonal glass which helps to keep the beer colder for longer. Hoegaarden is the mother of all Belgian-style wheat beers. The beer has roots going back to 1445, when in the Belgian village of Hoegaarden, a wheat beer recipe was developed in which traditional ingredients were balanced with spicy coriander and a hint of orange peel giving Hoegaarden its surprisingly smooth and highly refreshing taste. 4.9% alc/vol.

Description312 Urban Wheat Ale! What kind of name is that? Like the digits suggest, it's a beer that's densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don't filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. that's how you know it's unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of cascade hops, followed by the crisp, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. It's not like any other Goose Island beer. But no less than you'd expect.
