pale yellow with the slightest of haze. no head. mosty buttery toffee nose i’ve ever smelled on a beer. diacetyl out the wazoo? flavor is essentially the same..like sucking on a Brach’s butterscotch candy.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - NOV 15, 2004
A slightly murky yellow/bronze colour with a minimum of head and a floating wisp atop. This after a vigourous pour. Very light malty nose. Not much going on aroma like. Soft, slightly tangy mouthfeel and a minimum of light malt notes and a bit of balancing hops. Not much going on for a Belgium beer. Quite a disappointment.

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.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2004
Amber color with a small beige head. The taste is sweet with notes of alcohol and light spices. Kind of watery and boring.

Aubrey (3430) - 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).

I fell in love with the bottle. If only it was scratch and sniff! Unfortunately the contents of the bottle is Bud Light. Pours watery, light yellow, very much the color of healthy urine. Had a big white foamy head that left some lacing but who cares? The beer smells like sugar water. Tastes pretty damned awful. Watery, off flavors, bitter in the wrong places, corn syrup flavors. I wouldn't drink this again but I still love the bottle. Too bad.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2005
What a gimmick. No head. Yellow. Sugar aroma mixed with corn. Bitter corn in the taste, finish is the same. Bland.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2003 Clear gold color. White head, quickly dissapated. Skunky aroma. No body. Lacks flavor. One demensional bitterness. Very fizzy. A substandard belgian lager. Not very good. I didn't finish it (a first).
