330 ml. Pours to a hazy gold, dense white head. Good aromas, yeast and fruits. Not a lot of hops here. Quite sweet and well rounded. Drinkable without being thin or watery. Very nice this one.

Appearance: Golden with a huge fluffy white head... with lovely lace on the glass
Aroma: Fruity with some pineapple and apple like aromas with a slightly spicy sour note there well. Undeniable belgian yeast nose
Flavor: Very complex ... opens with a sweet malt note which is quickly replaced with sour apple like sourness mellowed by bitterness which is slightly spicy
Palate: Medium light body with a nice carbonic bite.... the flavors seem lively finishes dry and slightly sweet - very balanced
Overall: Very attractive beer. The nose is very impressive the taste leaves litle to be desired but a definite must try beer.

Bottle: Complex structure, with mixes of fresh pineapple, malts, dough and soft bitterness but with a finish that is a bit flat; a "Belgian Burgundy".

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
CLoudy gold body. Aroma has some grapefruit and wild flowers pinched in. Some grainy charachteristics. Taste is chewy and semi bitter, but well balances and strangely refreshing. Comes with grapefruit, yeasty, and pepper with a pinch of clove. Very enjoyable and rather easy to drink

Bottle from Paul (blankboy) thanks! I have seen this somewhere, I forgot where, but this was a bonus beer from Paul. Pours out yellow with a nice white head. Taste is sweet and fruity and refreshing. After working outside all day, this one hit the spot and disappeared rather quickly. I liked this, and feel it may be a little underrated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy effervesce golden body. Floral aroma and vanilla. This was a nice suprise after trying a couple Affligem that were just OK. This one hit the spot for me. Thick buttery mouthfeel for a abbey blonde. Good nutty taste, like almonds. Spices like corriander and a sweet vanilla like taste. I’m glad they sell these in 6 packs.
