Faint, slightly sweet smell. Slightly sweet taste with a bit of a bitter finish. Taste is weak though. Not much too it... It’s an okay beer I guess, not as strong as many lagers I’ve had... Not repulsive, maybe I’d have it again. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Not sure why peple are down on this ber.....I think this is a true classic and can enjoy this one anytime of the year....great beer flavors and great palate. Get it in the correct glass! TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2006
Beer pours a rather sickly yellow with a frothy, whipped egg white head that is nicely retained. Aroma is lightly skunky with a decent spicy hoppy note. Flavor is grainy, malty with a decent spicy hop finish. A good beer for a blazing hot day in Texas. Will buy again. alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 9, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow, full head when poured. Strong hops, good carbonation. The nose is sweet malts, vegetables and grass... not to apetizing.. looks and feels better than it tastes. A good girls beer i guess. rkn65 (106) - st. clair shores, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2006
Very nice drinkable Belgian. Nice head forms when poured into tulip galss. Totally different flavor when poured into a pint glass. The tulip pour was heady with a slight hop bite. The pint pour was like drinking a Bud.

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. CanadaCam (109) - CANADA - APR 2, 2006
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. zepher70 (3) - California, USA - MAR 31, 2006 does not count
This is a nice light, smooth and easy drinking beer for the everyday consumption stef92 (129) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Miller Lite with a fancy name! Urine colored. Very light on taste. In fact might as well have had a glass of water. awebster (166) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Just like American macrobrews. I.E. not very good. Pale, watery, bland. ’Nuff said.
