3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Dear God, only upon my return from Belgium did I notice, that this beer had an expiry date in January 2001! That is a beer more than 4 years too old. Normally this is totally devastating for a lager, but well, well, well... Amber-coloured, slightly hazy, flat head with large, odd bubbles. Incredible almost smoked malty notes and then a fantastic aroma of sherry - not madeira. Short, dry bitterness in the palate. A unique experience indeed! Bought from André Paeleman in his tavern in Wetteren - and a close rival to his own Uitzet beer... 160505

Only had it once, liked it more than the normal stella artois. Flavor was excellent (for a lager, that is).

A nice dry standard lager. Very good on a hot day for a big thirst.

A decent bottled beer. Not so much dry though. More of a less offensive taste than normal stella, but strangly stronger though.

the label says: ’without aftertaste’ as if it was the ultimate marketing argument. Ridiculous and tragic at the same time ... - transparent golden colour, fine head, few hop presence, crisp and fresh, dry and short finish. After all, it was not as bad as the label said it was !
