Not much of a fan of this. I realize it is continuing to grow in popularity but I find it pretty bland with a stange, funky aftertast. With so many other great Belgiums out there just leave this one alone.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 What can I say about "Wife Beater" that hasn’t already been said before? Stella has really taken off in Canada over the past five or six years, thanks largely to a marketing campaign in this country -- I’d dare say it may even be the No. 1 European brew over here. Aside from a slight skunky smell (not NEARLY as bad as Heineken, mind you) this is an all-around good pint. A word to the wise, though: If you’re visiting Canada and you pop into a pub to order a Stella, ask that they pour it into a regular, standard pint glass. If you don’t, they’ll probably pour it into one of these pretentious one-pint glasses which resembled an oversized wine glass. Draught beer should ONLY be served in standard pint glasses, but that’s just my opinion.

This is a nice light, smooth and easy drinking beer for the everyday consumption

Miller Lite with a fancy name! Urine colored. Very light on taste. In fact might as well have had a glass of water.

Just like American macrobrews. I.E. not very good. Pale, watery, bland. ’Nuff said.

If nothing else, this is very ordinary. It is not a bad beer, but does not do justice to most of the other products that come out of Belgium. Calling it the Budweiser of Belgium might be a little tough, but not too far from the truth.

One of my all time favorites! Like beer in general, it is an acquired taste.

Clear yellow color with a great head. Ordinary lager but not a bad one, No spiciness in mine...

You’ve got to be kidding me! "Beautiful", "citrus", "hoppy"???? Well, mine WAS from a can, but I’ve had from a bottle earlier, and I didn’t finish that either, so I don’t think that I am biased by the can.... There is little about this beer that makes it noticable over a Tecate or a Corona. And I am not being biased by style, there is much more complexity in a Beck’s, which I recently had, or a Sam Adams. Pours pee yellow with an eggshell head, no corn or rice flavors. I think that there is only barley in this one (so it gets over a 2). No spice on the finish, in fact rather flat on the taste meter. There are much better options, even in Panama. I don’t understand why, when I visited NYC last summer that this beer was so freaking trendy....Rolling Rock is better. This beer doesn’t deserve being Belgian.
