Cunningham (4490) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
Appearance: Light hazy pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity and light acidic.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet, and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild round fruity, mild malty and yeast. Some acidic notes. Oily texture. Well masked alcohol.
Overall impression: Quite pleasant mild ale. I managed to keep all the chunks in the bottom of the bottle in the bottle. They did not look very inviting.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nett order, Norway

Wasn’t my favorite of the three we had back at BW, but I’m not usually the blonde fanatic either.

(Bottle, Delirium Café, Brussels, 27 Oct 2013) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with tropical fruit, peaches, citrus and grainy malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grainy malt, citrus, peaches, tropical fruit and a balanced bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Quite nice.

Temptation (224) - - NOV 15, 2013
Clear honey color, almost no head no lace. Sediments are present. Highly carbonated. Aromas are weak, with floral and yeasty notes, somehow rustic. The flavors more evident are bread, straw, some caramel, sugars, enhancing the rustic character. Medium development, smooth finish and medium bodied, lessened by its watery texture. It’s a correct beer, but I like a lot Abbaye Des Rocs’ beers and this one is the worst of their great catalogue.

Trappist1 (492) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2013
dark yellow with orange appearance, white head quickly disappearing. still 1.25year to go before expiration, but lot of yeast flakes. Nose is very fresh, yeast, bread, bit citrus but also something sharp. Taste is very grassy, again some yeast. Finish is leveled, somewhat bitter. Okey beer, nothing wrong with.

Hazy yellow with normal head. Aroma of yeast and fruit aroma. Flavour of fruity malts, hops and almost some bacterial sourness. A nice blonde
