3.16/5 rDev +8.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
From an 11.2 oz can (dated July 2, 2014) into a pint glass.
A-A normal pour produces a light, yellow-gold brew with a thin, white head that drops quickly. No lacing, not much activity in the beer.
S-The smell is slightly grainy with a mild hop bite. There isn't much here, but a little whiff of banana reminds you that this is a Belgian beer. Conversely, a touch of skunk reminds you that this is a canned, macro-style lager.
T-The taste is mild like the smell, but with less intrigue. The brew is grainy, with a hint of toast, and only a minute kick of skunky, bitter hops.
F-The feel is light to medium with a tinny, slightly fizzy carbonation.
O-This brew is ubiquitous in the old country, but that doesn't make it great. Anyway, I would rank Jupiler one or two small notches above a BMC macro AAL type lager if only for the slightly interesting smell and the slightly heavier mouthfeel.

It isn't often that I go from one of the best beers in the world (Westvleteren) to one of the more common (Jupiler) in just a matter of two hours. I had a bottle at a cafe which was on the Belgium-France border outside Watou. On to the beer:
This beer is pale gold colored with a short head and decent retention. It smells of a strange iron, and it also smells of a standard malted barley. The taste at least is a small improvement over the aroma. It starts with vague cereals and some DMS. Is there fermenting asperagus in this beer? A dry barley note and slight fruitness bring a little rescue effort to the beer, making it half-decent. The beer is light bodied and "soapy", and okay with the drinkability.
Eh, it's okay. It's probably better than a skunked Stella though.
