Abio (1572) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
Nice golden coloured brew with a decent head that holds good. Malty and hoppy brew, with slightly some spices added, but also a less pleasant faint metallic part in the taste. A bit to hard to smell, but good to taste.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer is hazy and yellow, with a finger of white head that leaves some good lacing behind. The aroma brings some yeast, citrus, spice, malt, and subtle alcohol. Nice flavor, well balanced. Lots of citrus, slightly sweet. Yeast and spices add depth and complexity. A delicious beer. So glad to try this rare Trappist ale. Recommended. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011
