Maybe they’ve had too much time to spare? Or have had divine providence? History keeps silent about the details but one thing is sure – in 1445 the monks from Hoegaarden came up with the recipe for the namesake Belgian beer. As the first wheat beer was sour, the monks began experimenting with orange peels and coriander brought from the colony in Curaçao: a divine discovery that led to the invention of the internationally famous Hoegaarden recipe.
