I picked up this oddity at the Binnys in Orland Park, IL, for $0.99. It came in a green plastic 16.9 oz twist top bottle and listed the ABV at 5% rather than the sites posted 6%. Frankly, I was surprized to see it listed as a Belgian Ale. It seems more like a cheap pale lager. Looks like one, golden bodied with a fizzy head that quickly reduced to a film. Smells like one, a bready, corny sweetness with a hint of pale malt and some grassiness. Tastes like one, some bland sweetness and a dose of grassy/herbal bitterness followed by a touch of metallica. The bottle calls it a "Premium Belgium Beer." I call it something that I wont be drinking again, despite its cheapness.

Scary soft pffft from the twist-off plastic bottle cap, but pours a straw colored liquid with a fluffy white head. Strong herbal to skunky hops. Trying to decide which way this one is going, a fresh noble hops or light struck mess. Actually settles down with some time, leaving a some minty hops along with a slightly buttery pale malt scent. A bit too much of a mess to think the smell is more deserving. Dry grain and flour start the flavors. Some herbal/wintergreen hops join in the gluey mixture. Fairly sharp bitterness in the finish, with fresh cut grass and weeds. Alcohol comes out a touch in the finish and linger. Very much like a eastern euro lager. I certainly would never have guessed this came from Belgium
