Here's a good thread on making a Hoegaarden clone [although it's mostly geared towards AG].

I wanted to clone Hoegaarden as one of my first brews but I've never actually gotten around to it.

my friend made the clone from clonebrews (or was it beer captured?...one of those.) it was awfully tasty, but it didn't taste like a hoegaarden and it was much darker of course (any extract recipe will be.)

I want to make a hoegaarden clone very badly but most recipes claiming that title look much like many other wit recipes. I don't know how to capture whatever flavor it is that makes hoegaarden so good. My best idea is to culture the yeast from a bottle of it.

no, unmalted wheat. raw, unmalted wheat.

you'll have to add it to beersmith but first you have to find it...

torrified wheat is as close as i can get at my LHBS, but it has made an incredible difference in my wheat beers. gives it a brilliant wheat flavor.

also, use white wheat as it will give a lighter color, pilsner malt, SMALL amounts of coriander and orange peel.

damnit, now i'm going to have to make a hoegaarden clone. i think i'll pick up a 6-pack tonight for study

i'll discuss with my genius brewing buddy, too. we'll figure this on out and i'll post in the next few days.
