Beer Tasting - Belgian Strong Ale ('Hoegaarden Grand Cru' by Brouwerij Hoegaarden)

in beer •  last month 

A bit of uncertainty in the markets. Alts pulling back, BTC hovering above 50 EMA. Do we go up? Do we go down?

Let’s put it like this: I’d rather sell a short above and risk it or buy the dip below and risk it than do anything here, right now. That gives better risk/reward ratio. Downside is you miss some of the move. I would always take better odds though.

Price broke below 50 EMA, and had a HUUUGE move in the last week. At this point I’d risk with a short on the basis of the fib level and price resistance point above.

A random find in the local supermarket. It holds up, but I’m not returning to it on a regular basis. There are so many options when it comes to Belgian ales in the Netherlands that I wonder how people even decide. I want some cheap IPAs for a change!

Hoegaarden Grand Cru

StyleBelgian Strong Ale
CountryHoegaarden, Belgium
BreweryBrouwerij Hoegaarden
AppearanceSlightly misty. Straw. Minimal head.
AromaEstery, citrusy. Slight pear.
TasteAlcohol sweet and tart. Dry finish. Simple.
PalateSilky smooth. High carbonation. Warms the palate. Dry to slightly bitter.
OverallI didn’t really like this one. Could be I’m overdoing Belgian styles lately. It’s heavy and taste is unbalanced. Packs a punch though.
Score (subjective)- 13/20

Price: 1.50 euro ($1.70) for 0.33 l. Bottle at a store. Mid-range.
