3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Woah - lots of floaties! Muddy amber with moderate offwhite head that persists. Aroma is Belgian yeast, caramel and a whiff of banana. Taste mostly follows the nose - maybe a bit more fruit and biscuit in the taste. Fair amount of carbonation, somewhat of a crispness here. Overall, a decent beer, but too many great Belgian beers to seek this one out again.

Bottle pours golden and clear with a great head. Retention is not so good, however. Smells of some caramel and malt. Some fruity tastes, again bready malts and a dry finish with a sharp hopbitterness to it, making the beer very refreshing and invites for another one. Not bad, but not particularly impressive either.

Poured a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma fairly muted caramel malt. Watery body, flavour of the malt and some little fruityness.

Great abbey blond ale, pretty clear golden with a thin white head. Bready/cereal malt aromas are to the fore with a nice light fruitiness in back. Starts brisk on the palate due to good carbonation, then follows a very mildly tart centre with some biscuit like maltiness. I get some pear or green apple flavours on the far end of the centre and then a moderately dry and quick finish with a bitterness to keep the universe in balance.

Very delicious and refreshing. Full flavor which was not expected from a blonde. Yeast, biscuit, malt. Fruit. Complex and delicate, many flavors none too bold. Light body.
