Im glad I got this in Europe so I didnt have to pay the inflated cost it costs over here. Not bad, but I didnt find it to be anything special, fairly smooth, maybe a bit of a spice flavor, with some malt to it.

Nice and tasty, lots of flavour and gets you where you want to be, fast. Not a good breakfast beer.

This is a great conversation beer, when just hanging out with friends. I always have a bottle handy. Bright yellow in color. Light aroma of malt or bread, slight alcohol. Tastes of bananas and slight hop bitterness. Tastes like a Belgian version of a Pilsner. Very thirst quenching and refreshing.

Sour aroma and a large head of foam. Suprisingly good flavor for 8.5%. One of my favorites by far.

The most accomplished mass produced beer on the planet. Great clarity colour aroma flavour. Consistently excellent despite expansion of the brewery.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 750 ml bottle. The aromas really come alive in its bodacious head (please pardon my retro lingo). First thing you notice when drinking is the almost champagne like carbonation, followed by the perfect blend of spiciness, citrus, and hops along with a great finishing taste. For some reason the 750 ml tastes better than the 330 ml to me.

Finally rating this one officially. One of the first big beers I had and definitely did not appreciate it then. Appreciate it way more now. Big fruity and yeasty aromas. Smooth bread and citrus taste.

Pretty standard BSA...rich golden yellow, but it does have a huge fluffy head...almost too huge. Aroma is candi and bread. Flavor is candi, bread, spicey yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is a bit wet and has a fairly bitter finish.

bottle. brownish yellow. very carbonated, tons of lacing and mammoth foam head. smells like a wit. tastes like bananas and huge bittering finish. sour. not particularly pleasant, but the abv is cool.
