Lightly scented aroma followed by a subtly bitter taste. It leaves a subtle raisin fruitiness on the palate ending with a pleasant bitter tonic when swallowing.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle at Beer Brothers’ Festival 2007, Mechelen, Belgium
Hazy, blond body. White, fizzy head. Ok lace. Very fresh aroma (like some kind of cleaning product) of citrus, orange. Quite complex and interesting nose. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite yeasty flavour. In total, I don’t really like it that much as I did like the aroma.

Eructoblaster (3844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with average carbonation and a nice white foamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with bready, grassy, and flowery hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste that ends with a sharp bittersweet finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 In short: A basic floral Belgian blonde ale. Good but nothing special.
How: Bottle 330ml, drank when about 6 months of age
The look: Clear blonde body topped by an initially large white head with medium retention
In long: Averagely fruity for a Belgian Ale with flavours of pineapples, apples (red and green), bananas, some grapefruits. Hops are very much on the floral side of things, almost perfumy. Sensation of floral petal juice along with some dry grass. Light acidity. Very lively carbonation, maybe a bit too much so. White pepper and salty notes, the beer has a strong mineral presence. An overall crisp and fresh sensation upped the score a few points. Very drinkable in its simplicity, almost underrated. The truth is that this beer isn’t far from one of the best Belgian Blonde ale. Silly is only 70 miles away from Westvleteren.

Borresteijn (6422) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2008
Bottle @ Take One. Hazy golden colour, white head. Very fruity aroma, malty and flowery. Flavour adds some hoppy notes to that, with a slightly bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Becomes a bit boring in the end.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with glouglouburp. Pale clear slightly greenish (?) gold pour with a huge lasting sticky fluffy white head. Very sweet and fruity aroma, very dry spice; green apple tartness and slightly grassy. The taste follows, grassier, not as sweet, some alcohol dryness .... light bodied, dry and astringent, the sweet malt finishes too quickly - easy to drink, but not memorable - good patio beer, thanks to the grassy hoppiness mixed in.

Oakes (15664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2009
Slightly hazy dark straw. Herbal-lemon balm, coriander leaf nose is slightly hoppy and yeast. Fun. Palate is dynamic but still shows some pepper notes. Lots of perfumey coriander. Not bad balance. Finishes herbal and with a dryness that shows gin, hop and alcohol. Interesting, approachable abbey ale.
