I had one last month at Tilted Kilt in Orlando and really didn't care for it either. I've made it already and it was better, imo.

I had the same experience about 6 years back. You'll never go back. **** Blue Moon.

Yes, I've had blue moon and did not buy it twice.

But Hoegaarden is delicious.

Guess I had too many home brews before I answered.

I just brewed the recipe from Beer Captured and it's a great Wit. It's not much like Hoe' , but it's a good recipe.
Got it in the dominion cup this year.

I need to get BCS.

It's reasonably priced too. Nice session beer.

Your BMC friends might like it and then you can have a giggle when they try to pronounce it.

had to add this photo to the thread, since the pictured tanker truck is pumping hoegaarden beer into the bar across the street through that red hose, even as i type.
haven't the foggiest how that works, yet there it is.
