Brouwerij Liefmans Yell’Oh on the Rocks – Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 3.8% ABV

Brouwerij Liefmans Yell’Oh on the Rocks Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 3.8% ABV (C$2.89 at Okotoks Co-Op, 250 ml, best before 1-Feb-2019, acquired 1-Sep-2018, reviewed 2-Sep-2018)

Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of creamy white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pineapple, lemon, stone fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, sweetish mild tart finish. (3/5)

Pretty unremarkable in general, which I guess makes it pretty terrible by Liefmans’ standards. (Mind you, their Fruitesse was actually worse, so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised.) The excessive sweetness prevents it from being refreshing, and the pineapple threatens to overwhelm everything. It’s not actually bad, but I think it would get pretty cloying if I tried to drink more than the tiny 250ml bottle. Clearly there’s a reason they tell you to pour it over lots of ice. (14/20)
