This is a very professional beer, it’s accomplished and it plays to its audience, delivering a great Belgium Ale in a mass produced way. I’m a fan though because I like the style, and will forgive the commercial nature of the brand.
Given a Duvel, Chimay or this I’d arm wrestle you for the Chimay, you could have the Duval which I find to be slightly sour.
The Sugar and sweetness will catch up with you if you’re thinking of a big night in, but then at 6.5% by the time you got to a well earned 4th you’d be smiling for two reasons.
Get Some, treat yourself

Smells Belgian, tasted extremely Belgian ! Maybe one if the most Belgian beers I have ever tried it at least I think so since it one of the first I tried longtime ago! Now, nothing special, a big classic, but very cliche one, not really something special..

Heldere oranjegouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, banaan, kruiden. Smaakt zoetig, banaan, beetje kunstmatig.

A decent beer. Not my favorite Belgium but very drinkable and it is available everywhere and at an affordable price.

Can. Gold colour, weak white head. Floral yeasty aroma, alcohol also notable. Fairly neutral taste with basement yeast finish and alcohol kick. Been a while, but now this is not my cup of tea.

330ml bottle. A little cloudy but golden when poured. Some carbonation - lively even. Good head, dissipating slowly. Sweet, low hops - taste of banana and malts, with little aftertaste. Great example of a commercial Belgian blonde beer.
