Bottle. Aroma was pleasant and fruity, but the taste was more than a little disappointing. Can’t say I will ever buy this again...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Very impressive head, with a yellowish color almost like a Pilsner. But also a slightly cloudy look. Aroma is sweet-yeasty, with maybe hints of fruit citrus and coriander. Medium body. Flavor is bitter-sweet but very balanced I thought. Spicy slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable beer I thought.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 Pours sparkling orange with a big, frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and candied, while the flavour builds on this with bready, yeasty flavours mingling with the candied sugar and citrus. There is also a bit of hoppy bitterness in there, but it is not overly pronounced. When it comes to Belgian abbey ales, this one is fairly simple and basic, but still, all in all, very nice nonetheless.
