Very bland and flavorless. Hopefully Bell's doesn't sue me.

Listen to the Mercury movement by Gustav Holst while you try this if at all possible. Blending the two sensory experiences enhances the overall beer in my opinion.

In any case, this is a very drinkable belgian. Great golden haze. Moderate Sweetness. Clean crisp finish.

Pours a slightly hazy pale straw yellow golden color with white fizzy head. Lots of light fruit notes with a little spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness.

A beautiful pale straw beer with a bright white head. As someone who doesn't really enjoy Belgians, I was very impressed with this. The malt was able to shine through the pungent Belgian yeast. This would be a great beer if you wanted something a little different on a hot summer day.
