This is the beer that got me started on Belgians. I had several in France on tap, where this is as common as Bud.
Have been buying it in the bottle here in CT...it's just not the same....it's good though , and worth a try, I think.
Clear gold...big frothy head, settles to 1/2 in.
Smells like clove , yeast , fruit.
Tastes all the above...pretty complex..a little hop coming through and a good amount of sugar..with a bubblegum hint..not too much....gets better with a little rise in temp.
Mouthfeel is medium ...carbonation medium.
Drinkable, I think...I could easily have a few.
I agree with the other reviews that they should not clean this up so much....but it's still a very good Belgian Blonde.

pours a golden blond with a nice head which dimishes quickly (or as quick as it needed for me to drain the old gizzard...)
smells fruity, weak kind of fruity for a belgian...
tastes like a belgian. kind of fruity. surprised at THE BROS' score. i dont feel it's a 66.
although it's not one of my favorite belgians it does have some refreshing qualities to it. i didnt know it was an anhauser busch product until i read it by a previous reviewer, but i agree with his take- rate the taste, not the company. but dang, i need to start reading these labels better. sucks when ya turn 40- cant read anything anymore with out a magnifying glass.

update: yep, it musta been around christmas. i cant say the taste is a 4.5. let's drag it down to a 4.25 and leave it at that. it looks pretty in my glass, but i'm not sure i should have given it a 4.5 there either. i AM very generous with my ratings, however. if it's decent and gets me there, i usually dont deduct a whole lot. and that makes my ratings top-heavy. but it's too late to go back and change them all now. i've had some good ones and my preferences change, but usually after a few (or a bj) i get soft and the whole world is just good. i cant help it....
