The Anheuser-Busch Company imports Hoegaarden wheat beer from Belgium. The beer's aroma is an amalgamation of spice, orange peel and coriander. Its manufacturer describes Hoegaarden wheat beer as having a smooth, light flavor.

Hoegaarden is served on tap and in amber bottles. Each 11.2-ounce bottle contains 176 calories as well as 13 grams of carbohydrates and is 4.9 percent alcohol by volume. It does not contain fats, sodium, cholesterol, minerals or vitamins.


Hoegaarden beer was first made in Hoegaarden, Belgium, in 1318. It takes nine steps to make this beer, from malting and milling the grains to fermenting and then re-fermentation, over the course of about one month to produce the final product. Hoegaarden is unfiltered, which explains its cloudy appearance and also its nickname of "white" beer or "witbier."

Fun Fact

Hoegaarden is traditionally served in a hexagon-shaped glass, which reduces the surface of the glass that your hand actually touches, preventing heat transfer and preserving the beer’s coldness.
