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.

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....

Very crisp, clean, and refreshing beer. I usually like some darker Belgians, but this is a nice change of pace. It has the standard fruity Belgian taste with a decent amount of carbonation that leaves a somewhat spicy aftertaste. There are better Belgians out there, but this one is not bad at all. One of "The Brothers" has this beer rated at a 2.2. That is worse than Budweiser. I find that ludicrous.

Presents wonderfully clear and clean in the class, both color and massive froth, with a light banana, clove aroma, followed by a light clove malted tast, balanced against very little to bitter the flavor.

Made a nice starter beer, when followed by a few strong, hopped up American IPAs (Sam Adams' Latitude 48) at the tree trimming party where no trimming took place.
