3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 Bottled. 1 year old bottle.
Hazy amber.. A bubbly diminishing head. Champagne-like nose, along with wheat. Flavor initially of wheat, but turns into a yeasty flavour. Spicy and slightly smokey in the long finish. Fat lacing!

A lot of yeastparticles.
A fresh, fruity champagneish and somewhat metallic aroma and flavour.

Good head on a golden, slightly cloudy brew. Bit of spice in the aroma. Warming in the stomach as I drink. Fruit and spice in the flavour, with a bit of alcoholic notes upon swallowing. Smoothly drinkable. Not my favourite trappist beer, but well worth tasting.

I like this beer a lot. Looks just like the picture. This is one of the better blonds that I have had and is better than the Achel Bruin in my opinion. Peary, slightly spicey flavor. Yummy.

Yeah, I dont see how joet calls out urine in the aroma, but still favored the quality! Yellow with a slight haze to it. Aroma of sweet play-dough and citrus...just plain weird. The taste was much better than the aroma, sweet, smooth, and fruity, hops and alcohol notes as well....everything came together well and lingered on the tongue nicely....this beer rallied after the shakey start.

Bottle. I wish that my nose were as sensitive as JoeT's such that I could have picked up urine in this, and I'm wondering how he can give it an 8 despite this! :) I thought it smalled more of a typical Belgian single style, maybe a bit more stale though. Nice effervescent and fruity flavor, but not enough to validate the $8 that I shelled out for this so that I'm hitting for the cycle of trappist breweries.

Urine, perfume, honey, yeasty and altogether blending very nice in the nose, light medium body is not spectacular. Mostly volatile flavors.

Hazy yellew color with a nice white head. Taste is mild malt, with a fruity hint. Finishes with a mild bitter taste.
