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.
