Orange with a clear white top. Reminds of Orval but lacks the punch. Smells of citrus fruits. Hops, a bit of citrus but the watery finish disappoints. Read metallic in another review and I can confirm...

Benzai (11312) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle @ Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Hazy dark orange to reddish color, full sized white head that lasts forever. Smell and taste malts, European (so probably Belgian) hops, decently bitter but also a slight sweet malty touch. Medium body and carbonation. Decent.

Bottle. Deep copper liquid with medium white head. Aroma of flowers, clove, spices, diacetyl, bread and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of butter, raw sugar and clove. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not good...

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2014
Slight orange color with an off-white head, very good looking. nose: grains, something chemical in the nose, off to me. taste gives a lot of eurpean hops, yeast. MF lacks power, lacks a bit of taste. overall, nose feels off and taste is one-sided, had expected more from BAB, especially with the dry hopping.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2014
Draft @ BAB’14. Ambrée, col blanc léger. Arôme offre un bouquet belge typique sur des notes pâle cara, des effluves houblonnées restant dans un côté noble font de cette dernière une bière typique belge relevée par qcq notes de houblons. Palais est malté, légèrement grillé, caramel moyen. Fini légèrement amer avec un fin citronné houblonné assez basique. Recette maintes fois revue et au final, malgré tout ces houblons je note très peu de l’influence des houblons supposés apporter des notes tropicales.

77ships (6129) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2014
Sampled draft @ Brugs Bier Festival 2014. Amber, orange, white head. Nose is hoppy & soapy, malty, grains, odd sweet spcies, old kitchen spices. Taste is same mix of soap, hops, spices, not really dinging these odd spices, quite a bit of candy sugar, grains, too much soap, caramel, malty. Slightly grainy feel to it. Not digging the taste of this one at all.
