Had this several times in Belgium. It was commonly served in small, ridged glasses which would raise the fingers from the glass surface and keep the beer cooler, for longer. Not a bad brew, refreshing.

This blonde beer deserves a little more credit than it gets. Its uncomplicated, yet much better than your average lager. However it suffers on draught when not kept well.

I had this on tap in Gent and it was very good. Its a nice change from the stronger, tastier belgian beers.

Had this beer out of the can. Served cool in a hotel water glass.

A-pale gold body, thick eggshell like head.

S-Saaz hop smell, metallic

T-sweet malt front, some funny corn flavor to boot

M-light

D-nice and drinkable for sure but nothing really interesting going on here. I might pass next time.

Drank this beer during a bowling evening in Holland. Jupiler is a beer which is very available in Holland, not only on bottle but also on tap. It is a good and very drinkable pilsener.

The only thing which is a bit less is that it gave me a slight headache the next morning!

Enjoyed a night full of Jupiler in Belgium. A fair amount of head sat atop the brew for a short period of time. There were not many noteworthy smells and the taste was somewhat bland, yet pleasant at the same time. I'm not sure if I would buy this in a store if I saw it, but I wouldn't hesitate to order it on tap in a Belgian bar.

On-tap at a little café halfway between De Heeren van Liedekerke and the Liedekerke train station. I got a bottle of Hanssens Geuze to pass the time, but when my friend offered me some of her Jupiler to do a review I couldn't say no.

A: Clear straw body with fizzy carbonation filling out the thin white head. Ok retention, decent lace. Not bad.

S: Rather heavy, husky malt. Just pure grain. Pretty average.

T: Smooth malt, with both grainy and bready notes. Some light toffee toward the finish, and solid bitterness on the end. Pleasant enough.

M: Light and fizzy, becoming creamy after a moment. Ok.

O: Nothing I'd ever order when in Belgium, but somewhat better than your average fizzy yellow beer.

Cheers!

On tap into a Juliper glass at a random bar in Oostvletern...Pours a piss clear gold, a white head with ok retention, but nice sticky lacing...The aroma is light grain and skunk, not terrible but I'm not happy either...The taste is light skunk, really pretty boring, a Belgian BMC but about 50 times better than BMC. No reason to ever drink though.

Had to have this at some point in Belgium because it's everywhere. I had it on tap at a small restaurant over some lunch.

A: Slightly hazy pure gold. Offwhite 2 finger head with great retention.

S: Very clean with hints of floral hops. Some soap. Grass.

T: Basic and grainy with a bit of grass. Hint of sourdough bread with a touch of yeast.

Better than your typical euro pale... but still unmistakeably a euro pale.

Being Belgian means this beer is very familiar.

L: To style: golden, relatively low carbonation but with an above-average head and lacing.

S: Nothing wild, a mild grainy smell.

T: Grainy and bitter, though not overpoweringly so.

M: Thin, even for a Lager.

D: Nicely refreshing and cheap, it's fairly uncommon to drink only one.

Jupiler is an everyday thirst-quencher or a beer you drink in large quantities in folk events (Doudou de Mons, Carnaval de Binche,...), never does it claim greatness; but as far as Lagers go, though I might be biased on this, it seems slightly ahead of the bunch.

Best served on tap.
