An excellent lager. Great flavor. Not over powering.refreshing. Such a superior choice over run of th mill domestic. This is what the big breweries need to survive against the onslaught of craft breweries out there. This import competes nicely against local craft. An excellent beer. Readily available almost anywhere in major cities in the USA. Great go to choice when craft is just not available.

Had high hopes for this Belgian beer...started out well with nice foam and good smell in the glass. Initial taste was good as well, very similar to a Chimay but not as refined. The aftertaste has something with it though, just can't tell what it is however. Certainly not as smooth on the finish at the initial taste though. Overall, I'll finish this 6 pack and chalk it up to experience.

Nice foam head that stays, good amount of carbonation. I detect a flavor of clove and a bitterish aftertaste. Lingers with a semi sweet flavor. Flavorful ale.

Beautiful blonde pour with fruits & spices on the nose. Strong fruit & spice flavor reminiscent of a hefeweizen but with higher carbonation & bitterness.

Not a fan but my wife really likes it! Have been trying to get out of my HOPPcentric ways. Seems to affect how beers w\o hopps taste and sometimes i'm to negative to them. Now i've decided to just drink more of the styles at a time to compare. Cheers to more tasting!
