2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I bought 2 bottles of this at 4.99 per thinking I could get more beer (Belgian abbey) for the buck. The 1st bottle was the funkiest wasabi spiked garbage I’ve had in a while. I was going to trash the brew masters reputation thoroughly. I opened the second bottle today and it was quite different. Still that indescribable wasabi-sour funk but not as prevalent. Appearance and pour are nice but that sour weirdness is a bit disconcerting. Now as it warms a bit the wasabi spike has diminished and its more of a sour apple. I’m going to the store now get a couple St Bernardus Abt12s

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, obtained in new Orleans; the land of crappy beers. This is by far the best beer I can get in a liquor store. Pours amber hue with beige head, it has aroma of hop and sweet malt. Slightly sweet but not cloying. A life saver in new Orleans.

Bottle. This is a pretty lack luster brew in a fancy bottle. I would give it a miss.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in New Orleans with Bobby and Lex. Pours a hazy amber with a lasting white head. Fizzy belgian spices are in the nose. Taste is slightly creamy, but very generic. Some cereal notes are there and the alcohol is well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy light tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-transparent copper brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was Vienna malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet Vienna malt mild red malt mild hops caramel and breads. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, darker orange gold with a finger of off-white head. Settles to cap quickly with moderate lacing. Aroma is super sweet, malty, mild alcohol, sweet corn. Flavor is sweet, malty, fruity, mild alcohol. Tastes like sweet corn to me. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Don?t remember it tasting like this las time but it reminds me of a big can of sweet corn.

Bottle pours amber with a full light tan head. Aromas of caramel malt and dark fruit. Tastes a bit thin for a dubbel, but lots of sweet caramel, raisin, and a bit of cloves. Slick mouthfeel and a malty finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a clear, medium brown color with a mild, malty scent. The taste is sweet, malty, and toasty mixed with hints of fruits. It finishes clean and refreshing. Quite a well made Abbey Ale from the Deep South.
