look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden amber color with lots of thick head with medium retention and leaving lots of laces.
Aroma of Belgian yeast, medicine syrup, malt sweetness and vanilla.
Taste follows nose. Sweet malt balanced by a spicy feeling from its hops.
Medium body with good carbonation with tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 6.6% ABV is completely hidden.
Excellent cost benefit, especially speaking about Brazil given Ambev scale and reach. Even compared to some nationals that tried to produce Belgian Ales, this one likely has a better quality and with half price. Unfair if compared to the top Belgian range, anyway try it in blind tests compared to the low or even medium range, so keeping aside the prejudice we have against the big companies (including myself once they usually contribute to a bad beer education).

Served from a 330 bottle

A: Very soapy looking head that died down pretty quick. Very light copper color. Head was spilling out of the bottle when I opened it.

S: Grainy malty smell. Honestly it felt like I could pick out some weird plastic smell in it too.

T: Very slight Belgian character the rest of the experience is just a nasty grainy after taste which is masked by water. Not hoppy or estery/phenolicy enough for a Belgian pale.

M: A decent crispness to it but nothing special.

O: I got a sixer of this to used the pop tops on my home brew to be honest.Would not get again, would not recommend but I wouldn't turn it down if someone really insisted on me having one.
