Wife works for bud and brought this home from work..... hate it but I'm not much of Belgian guy anyways more of a stout and sour type guy. Though it looks great and pours good, it lacks a lot of quality

I smell the familiar smell of a similarly known yeast, Belgian blonde adij ale but one that gives hints of the desired taste but too little and then remains an artificial lack of taste.

This beer looked totally normal at first, golden color had little head to it, and smelled kinda sweet. To my surprise when I drank it, this is the worst beer I have ever had period, maybe it is just me I don´t like sweet beer but this was terrible I did not take a mouthful or drink more than first touched my tounge on first sip. NOT for those who don´t like sweet beer. BAD BAD BAD

A_Nice straw yellow color, medium head. Noted the carbonation.

S_Just OK, yeast aroma. This is followed by a bit of hay.

T_Like it smells... yeast and hay. The finish is dry with a ton of alcohol.

M_Medium feel with an alcohol linger. Liked the carbonation.

D_It's well made beer, just nothing that appealed to me. I won't bother with this again. The aftertaste was the final "straw".

A - It's golden, with some bubbles coming to the top. Big head, some lacing.

S - There isn't a whole lot of smell on this one, it's like someone took a beer and just turned the volume down on it.

T - This is just horrible. Maybe I got a bad bottle, tastes like metal and copper. Disgusting.

M - Other than the bad taste, light bodied, sits alright in the mouth, decent carbonation.

D - Once again, easy enough to drink, other than the horrible taste that makes me want to spit it out.
