Light, clear and fizzy. Thick, loose head which laces. Sweet medium body. A bit of wheat flavor in the finish. The alcohol is only present when warming.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Pours a pale yellow with a large foamy, frothy head. Fruity slighly sour aroma. Quite a bit of carbonation. Very nice flavor, a sweetness that is just about perfect. If only I was able to pour it without too much of a head..... guess Ill need to practice.

Honestly, this beer is a masterpiece and we should consider ourselves lucky to have such great access to it here in the States. At least in NYC. I cant think of one drawback.

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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2006
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.
