Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of malts and spices. Good pale lager.

If the beer were half as good as the young maiden on the front, there might be something to shout about. However, I think this concoction falls under the "Buffalo Butt Postulate," (which I just made up and have copyrighted) which states, "The flavor of the beer is adversely affected by the cleverness of the bottle’s labeling." In other words, if the illustration is one that makes you giggle or think "Wow, what a cool bottle!," then chances are the contents inside are nothing to make a song up over. This stuff is labeled beer because mineral water doesn’t necessarily have an aftertaste. Get this one for the interesting label, but don’t expect anything other than guilt over getting butterflies for an illustration's derriere.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2005
Very sweet-smelling nose. Hazy and yellow-gold hue. Really soft carbonation; light body; rather watery. Chewy sweetness (bread dough, buttery crackers). Earthy and kind of metallic (iron). Overall, dusty and bland with a rough balance. Some off-flavors as well (vegetables and some oxidation).

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Slightly hazy golden color with high carbonation. Decent white head that quickly fades. Minimal, spotty lacing noted. Aroma is of clean pale malts, some grains, and a hint of yeasty funk. Flavor is mildly pleasing, with pale malts and yeast providing the background, and light spices making an appearance. The body is on the light side of medium, and finishes smooth and clean. As pale lagers go, this is one of the better ones. Awesome label, if nothing else!

thegreenrooster (3299) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is grassy and floral. Flavor is musty and barnyard. Lots of floaties made it to the bottom of my glass. I agree with heemer that this is more of a saison than a lager. In the end this is just ok. Nothing really comes out at you except for her ass after you scratch off her knickers.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Thanks to Skaughty for this one! This looks good going into the glass, bright golden color, crystal clear, nice dense white head. The aroma is the first clue that this beer has some faults. Soapy aroma. While there are no horrible flavors to follow the aroma, unfortunately there were no real good malt or hop flavors there either. Thin, wet, cold and refreshing with no more beer character than a typical American Light Lager.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Grassy hop aroma with a light malt scent. Taste is crisp and clean with a light malt, and faint caramel taste, and finishes with a moderate bitterness. Nice subtle smoothness to this brew, and the bottle is probably the most rockin thing i could imagine.

Beerdedone (2730) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a decent sized white head. Aroma of grass, yeast and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet malts, vegetables, and yeast. Different but nothing great.

jimhilt (2428) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Pours a two finger white head that fades to a thin layer leaving a some of lace. Almost clear amber color. Light-medium bodied and light carbonation. Nose is vague maybe bread. Starts balanced but not enough flavor some bitterness at finish but boring, label is better than the beer, not the usual for a Belgian. $1.89 for a 330ml bottle from John’s Market Tigard, OR.

A randomly grabbing hand into my refrigerator and here we go with rating #1700! Woo Hooo - Scratch off her panties and bottoms up!!!!! Yes, the young lady on the label is really wearing scratch off undies. Well, I guess that I should be "sans culotte" while rating this.....Light golden toned, no head and very little lace. Grass and sweet malt aroma - not bad. Body is prickly carbonation, sweet malts (adjuncts - probably, but not overwhelming), a little dust of pepper at the end. Not a brainy beauty. (And you’re going to end up with that gold stuff under your fingernails from scratching off the underwear)
