look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured from a can into a Hoegaarden pint glass in low altitude Galway, Ireland, on October 25th, 2010. Pours a clear bright yellow with a pathetic two finger head that appears thin and without cream. At least it doesn't look overcarbonated.

Smell: A light note of malted barley. Not unpleasant but not bold.

Taste: A rather pleasant note of cream I didn't expect, and a quite nice balance thereafter, but the build is a bit too sweet especially towards the finish.

Mouthfeel: Some lovely cream on the open. A bit too wet up until the finish, but I want more. The finish goes coarse towards the end but stays wet. Interesting.

Drinkability: I didn't expect this from a budget beer (even if it is from Belgium). For the price and 5.00% abv, it don't get much better.
