25 cl. bottle. Aroma a little disappointing. Average appearance. Mediocre flavor with much too short finish.
Overall, very average.

This poured a hazy yellow with a decent enough head - if only it stayed a while. It has a very yeasty, fruity aroma with a large dollop of honey. Quite spritzy in the mouth. The flavor is straightforward, sweet malt with alcohol. Not bad, but I probably won’t be repeating this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very attractive yellow pour with a substantial white frothy head, aroma is fruity, yeasty spicey. Nice collection of fruity malt flavors, perhaps pear/apple, sweet with a nice balance of spice. Well rounded mouthfeel, finish is sweet with spice though clean. Not real complex but very drinkable and refreshing, enjoyed this very much.

Pours clear yellow with big creamy full lasting white head. Dry yeasty aromas. Smooth rich malty flavor with interesting yeast profile. Slight alcohol warmth. Nice smooth easy drinking abbey. Very mellow and delectable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasant medium-gold with touches of burnt orange; minimal head retention. Heavy alcohol on the nose despite the relatively minor 6.8% alc./vol., plus interesting layers of orange and orange zest, banana, bran bread and rain water. Banana leads the way in the flavour department, followed by bitter alcohol and a peculiar trace of sweet potato. The distasteful bitter alcohol persists on an almost indefinite finish, leaving a negative final impression to what was a fairly interesting brew.

Poured afoamy , thick head. A little sweet and a smalle bite of alcohol. There are better, sure, but this is pretty good.

Warm-yellow colorwith big white head. Fresh nose of citrus, yeast, some malts, and light hops. Taste is clean, refreshing, citrus-fruity, smooth and dry and ends with a fine hoppy touch.

I really enjoyed this. Smooth, creamy, long-lasting head, excellent fruit aroma. Smooth given the alcohol content but not sweet. Sharp on the palate but not harsh.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is pretty light. Apperance is light and yellowish-orange. Flavor is somewhat lacking. It’s a little malty with hints of citrus, but it doesn’t really stand out. It’s pretty cheap for a belgian, at least compared to the other ones at the store. If your looking for a relatively cheap and easy to drink belgian, this isn’t too bad.
