Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.

A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

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".

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2006
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.

chicagobears (429) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2006
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.
