AirForceHops (2953) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Draft @ Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub. On 2 Feb 2013. Mostly transparent amber color with a real thin white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts with a touch of some European variety of hops. The aroma is fruity and spicy. Medium-bodied with a soft carbonation. Flavors is a real weak fruity yeast and generic spice. The finish is short and leaves nothing right after the sip. Watery / thin body. This must be the Bud Light of the country of Belgium simply because I can’t find any flavor. I can homebrew stuff WAY better than this. (and I’m an amateur)

maledictum (609) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 10, 2014
Slightly dusty, but sweet nose with a lovely caramel color. Great head; like a sponge. Light toasted malt flavor, but a little buttery. Slight dryness at the end, but overall more on the sweet side. Creamy mouth feel and an OK balance.

574deadzone (984) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a solid gold with a thin eggshell cap that settles to a ring and leaves some soapy, hanging lace. Nose involves some light citrus notes and some noble hop spice with a touch of doughy yeast. Lightly sweet, a bit tart, fairly bitter. Lighter bodied, a bit watery, a touch grainy, finishing lightly tart and somewhat dry. Really, not bad, pretty refreshing, and somewhat resembling a pilsner or helles lager.

GuideDogSaint (65) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Carrefour, Xintiandi, Changchun. Pours golden with a thin white head. Strange aroma, citrussy lime.A little bitterness in the taste. For a 5.2% beer this is decidedly watery. Belgium can do a lot better.

maxwelldeux (3466) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a very small white head on there. Nose is a little sweet and definitely fruity, with a bit of banana in there if you push hard enough. Tase is slightly sweet and a bit earthy actually, and almost drinks like a flat champagne. Interesting...

dlihcsnatas (266) - Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Light amber with small head that fades out very quickly. Thin feeling with not much going for it other than the caramel flavor and smell. While it is not a bad brew there is nothing great about it. A couple days ago I tried the new Busch Signature. This beer has simular qualities.

RRistow12 (221) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Aroma is fairly mild. Some biscuit, bread, caramel and spices. Taste is smooth and crisp with moderate sweetness and mild bitterness. Pretty well balanced. Flavors of caramel, biscuits and grains. Pretty drinkable. Light to medium bodied. Overall not the best belgian beer but still much better than most macros. Good for a session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbastard (671) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2014
11.2 bottle. Clear Amber pour with spoty lacing. Good blend of malts and Continental hops. Mild honey sweetness mixed with a fruity bitterness. Slight dry finish. Very easy to drink. I have to give this a extra point for sentimental value, 20 years ago it was my first beer in Europe.
