Well, I guess I found Belgium's answer to Schlitz! This beer was absolutely boring and tasted pretty gross. I got a can of it for my train ride out of Brussels and I wasn't expecting much, quite honestly, but I figured that the Belgians could at least make a cheapo beer more palatable. I was wrong. This was definitely a no-go. I drank it right from the head, so I didn't get a really good look at it but it was quite light from what I could see. Kind of a rank smell, but I think that's just how it is supposed to smell. Don't bother with this one, folks!

To begin with, I would like to say that this is not a proper tasting. I bought a few bottles of Jupiler for the evening because it was only 30c per bottle. I've just opened one and started sipping from it and surprisingly this beer is really good from a bottle. I've had it a couple times before but on-tap and it was terrible.
Because I'm drinking it from a bottle it is difficult to say anything about appearance and smell, but the rest of the features is extraordinarily nice for a cheap commercial beer. It is worth stressing that it has something from Belgian ales - sweetness and banana aftertaste. I will definitely buy a crate of Jupiler the next time instead of Grolsch, Heineken or Hertog Jan.

Having grown up in brussels on jupiler, and the rest, I know the standards of this beer can vary wildly. If served correctly, ice cold, in an immaculately clean 25cl glass, and in a bar full of friendly belgians, jupiler is hard to beat. I dont know what their export beer may taste like, but I think it is a lager that is balanced, maintains its head to the bottom of the glass, has lacing that runs the length of the glass, balances bitterness at the end with the sweetness that first hits your lips, and is really quite refreshing. Looks like lager should look like, served with a two-finger head that hangs around long enough. As far as commerical lagers go, it wins hands down against all the terrible commercial lagers from anywhere but belgium and germany.

Quite mediocre for a Belgian beer. Standard look and taste, nothing special here. A sour edge when it first hits the mouth, but finishes nicely. Bought this while travelling on business in the Southern Netherlands... there are much, much better local choices here.

Not a bad beer for what it is. Consumed in mass quantities by the Belgian proletariat, it quenches the thirst and helps to wash down some of that hearty Belgian food. At the same time, if you are in Belgium there are far better beers to be had! Go out and try 'em instead of just going around the corner to the local bar or convenience store and getting this.
