4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of effervesence. It was spewing out of the bottle seconds after I began removing the top. The aroma of citrus and fresh baked bread. First sip was creamy and tasted of grapefruit with some sweet overtones. I may be crazy but I always think of candied circus peanuts when I taste belgian beers.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
BCA (BBE 2006, from Bitter Virtue). I dont normally mind floaters too much but this beer went too far - large globular almost jelly like chunks throughout. Pale malts flavours with a hint of caramel, biscuits. There is also supporting spiciness (pepper and coriander) and sultanas. A little sweetness and alcohol - not too much - but the body ends up being a bit easy going. The mouthfeel is again spoiled by the floaters which were quite noticeable and had an unpleasant softly squidgy texture. Could have been better without the primordial ooze but not great.

Pours to a hazy amber body with very nice creamy milken white head. The aroma is minerally, sweet and fruity, spicy, light black pepper. The flavor is much like the aroma. The mineral qualities come to the foreground. A light banana quality is present. Some subtle gingerbread. I like all the beers from Abbaye des Rocs. Oh so good. The palate is minerally, lightly dry, refreshing, medium bodied.
