3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
the aroma is intriging with orange banana and maybe peach or apricot. the color is a hazy copper. It fell over on the way back from the store, oterwise I think it would be clear. the head is huge, and rockyand lingers for a long time. the flavor is malty with big orange flavors. the maltyness is huge. very much like a german beer. there is little bitterness but some good hop flavor mixed with orange peel and coriander. there is some slight alcohol flavors emerging. the body is fairly light for a 7% beer. this is a little too malty for a belgian beer, but its balanced well and very drinkable. it does have a kind of giant brewery flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2012 Slightly hazy gold, pretty white head. Aroma slightly sour, good yeast pepper and dried coriander. Flavor matches, but slightly ashy. Not bad overall. RERATE: 11/21/2012 - On tap at restaurant in Paris, had it with Pot au Feu. This time, it was clean, not at all sour. Also lacked the ash note, and wasn’t really much in the way of coriander. Just a nice pale malt flavor with a good bit of spicy Belgian yeast. My guess would be that my first bottle rating had suffered from age.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Limpid gold colour with a hint of orange. Sweet apple and malt aroma with slight vinous notes and a hint of orange peel. Very clean palate - citric witha good sharp tang. None of the cloying sweetness that some other commercial "Abbey" beers have. Bittersweet finish with a very slight metallic edge. Overall, a very acceptable, easy drinking beer.

Typical Belgian blonde ale, however I am not a fan of the style. If you like the style, then you will like this beer.

Deep gold in colour with a white head. Aroma of peaches, light hops, faint yeast and citrus. The flavour was spicy, peppery with some yeast. Finishe was sweet with a mild bitterness.

I was awed by the head on this beer. It rose high above th glass in a cloud like form. A good light, slightly sweet ale. Enjoyable and drinkable. I could find myself having several of these. Thanks Urbn.
