Alberta (Canada)

2.9/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The first person to ever recommend this to me years ago raved about it being her favorite beer to drink while travelling in Europe. I bought a 6 back then and it failed to impress me, and still does. Perhaps it was better back in Europe years ago, or perhaps I simply don't agree with her tastes. One thing is for sure, it's caught on in North America recently like a wild fire.

This sampling was a from a green 660ml bottle with a freshness date on the back. Poured out with a decent sized chunky white head, but it faded fast. Clear straw coloured appearance. Left a small ring and some small traces of lace. Nose possesses malty sweetness, mild flowery hops, a bit watery. Flavour is some what skunky, the malt and hops jump in to get to you first, but neither seems to win. It's fairly drinkable, but disappointing for a Belgian beer. The Bud of Belgium is how I have it pegged.

3.21/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 1.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

appearance is no better than say Budweiser. perhaps even worse.
That aside, this beer smells fantastic, such a surprised. The taste is at first a reflection of the smell then immediately dies down to something far less impressionable. Undoubtedly does that kill a point or so in the taste score. With a beer of this piss yellow hue of course it will be a tad watery. And so the mouthfeel lost a point or so. Overall since this beer has some perks, I say give it three stars. Try it at least once. Its okay.
