Stella beer recalled worldwide due to sour taste and smell

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - If your Stella Artois beer doesn't taste up to standards, put the pint back down. 4,000 casks of the beer are being recalled worldwide, that's equivalent to 850,000 glasses of beer.

Because of an error the pipes at the brewery were not cleaned and the Stella beer was mixed with Leffe beer, a Belgian beer with a stronger fermentation. This resulted in a bad smelling, sour tasting beer and a lot of complaints from unsatisfied customers.

The mistake will cost the brewery hundred thousands of dollars.
