GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Tulipa. Intenso aroma de pera al destapar. Color dorado brillante y transparente con espuma blanca. El perfil aromático despliega fruta madura, especias, hierbas, alcohol azucarado, heno y recuerdos de melón maduro. Entrada vivaz, azucarada y especiada. Cuerpo medio/pleno y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Paladar reseco y cálido alcohol. Las notas de melón y fruta madura junto al bajo amargor, permanecen en el final seco dulce/amargo. Prolongado retrogusto afrutado. 330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Intense peach as cap is removed. Bright golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth. Aroma profile displays ripe fruit, spices, herbs, sugary alcohol, hay & ripe melon memories. Crispy, sugary & spiced upfront. Medium to full body. Moderately high carbonation. Dried palate & kind heat. Melon & ripe fruit notes are joined by low bitterness then linger into a dry sweet/bitter finish. Long fruity aftertaste.

Poured into tulip from 750ml bottle bought at Kroger in Hilton Head SC. Pours a nice deep gold with a huge white everlasting head at least 4 fingers worth. Arome is pure Belgian yeast as is the taste. There is a spice in the background with a little wheat. One of my favorite Abby beers.

Amberkleurig bier. Vruchten en citrus met een hop-bittere afdronk. Koud drinken.. Niet het beste biertje dat ik gedronken heb, maar zeker niet slecht...

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours an almost clear dark gold with a solid 4 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast with something a little sour. Taste follows aroma. Full bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Fizzy carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, pretty good. I could enjoy this again.

Bottle from bier huis, ossett. Slightly cloudy deep amber, with a decent white frothy head. Yeasty malty aroma. Lovely rounded flavour, quite sweet to start with banana followed by a orange peel bitterness and a nice warmth from the alcohol. Medium carbonation, full body. Lovely jubbly.

Cybion (68) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle, 300 ml. Pours clear light amber/blonde with a minimal amount of soapy white head. Big honey note on the nose, with some biscuit malts, spices, and perhaps a little bit of citrus. Getting some alcohol on the nose too. Citrus notes are more pronounced in the taste, and I can narrow them down to lemon, which mixes in very nicely with the honey and the biscuit malts. Not as boozy as I was expecting from the aroma but the high ABV shows itself in the best possible way in the very satisfying level of warmth in the throat this stuff imparts, reminiscent of Rochefort 8 in that regard. Moderate carbonation means this isn’t as smooth as it perhaps could have been, but other than that, a fine brew.

Pours a nice slightly hazy golden color with white head. Citrus, yeast, and some light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. A raw wheat note arises on the finish.
