A: Didn't have a glass to pour it in because I was just drinking by the pool straight from the bottle. I rated the appearance off of how nice the bottle looks.

S: Sweet smell on the nose with a definite skunk. Some bitterness comes through from the hops and there's also a slight lemon-y scent as well.

T: Sweet with some grassy notes from the hops. Skunky when you swallow and on the aftertaste.

M: Again not a ton going on. Not much carbonation. Very smooth going down.

Overall it's a good beer. Very easy to drink. Would be good on a hot day.

See: Poured into my mug, this beer looks as pretty as its name. Golden with minimal bubbles/ 2 1/2 inch fine white head/bit of lace. A thin top layer & edge survives the whole trip down.

Smell: Pleasant~has a hint of sweet lemon like in a lemon meringue pie.

Taste: Very smooth at first, then a gradual building bitter bite at the end. Not too overpowering, though.

Feel: Bitterness stays, but its ok. Now my mouth wants fish and chips.

Blanket: This is very burpy beer & I feel bloated out. Wouldn't want to be drinking this on the beach, iykwim.

AKA: Stella Belly (not as pretty)

A: Golden Urine Color. One finger head fades quickly.

S: Sweet honey smell. Grainy.

T: Lacks depth. Grainy sweet taste followed by nothing.

M: Feels like water in your mouth carbonation is very light.

O: Overall, this is an average beer. College kids think it's classy but it's really not all that great. I wish it had more depth. It goes down too much like water. Belgian people probably think of this as the Busch light of Belgium.
