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

I drank this straight from the bottle. The smell is light and fruity, appealing. It has a light feel to it with a strong taste on the way down. Definitely strong fruit taste. It is well carbonated and was a quick, refreshing drink. This is above average but not something I would drink regularly.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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....
