Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2010
From bottle. Mild sweet caramel aroma, straining to be a dubbel. Light diacetyl. No hop aroma. Dark brown amber clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with light malt, a bit of caramel, and buttery character. Dry bitter hops at the finish but mild. Sweet nutty after. Not very impressive.

Fratto (2626) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from pikapp327. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is weak, grainy, a little dark fruity, and uneventful. Taste is mostly the same. No aftertaste. Watery.

Onslow (1185) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber clear brew with a short lived off white head. Aroma of light grains, teaberry. Sweet flavor, light grains, not much in the finish. Thin palate.

Bottle. Poured a murky amber color with a smaller white head, the head did retain throughout the entire beer. Aroma was biscuit, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor was malts, some tart in the finish. Not a whole lot to this beer. Very weak and watery, thin body.

OK, blue moon, I saw you standing alone? Well not any more, blue moon makes alot varied brews like this one; a beldgy. Does have that old style yeast feel to it. Quite strong initial impressions yet well controlled. Not sure if its the beldgy sugar er the yeast that gives it that personality. Couldn’t drink abunch of theser but it goes down fairly easy for a five plusser. Decent lacing. Stands right up there with some of those other beldgy wanna bee american imitations. Aroma is clean and rather sterile, but something is there. Finish is a little creamy and medium bitter. One of the stronger moons I’ve had; they must be trying to approach the big beer category, heheh. To put this in the same style category as orval is hilarious.

jmagnus87 (2438) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2011
From a 12oz bottle from Pick’s Liquors. Very very slight aroma of caramel. Appearance is hazel with very slight head that dissipates quickly. Bland taste. Slightly sweet and salty. Deceptively light bodied for how dark it is, thin texture with average carbonation. Very abrupt finish.

Its like a very light chimay grand cru. Better than I expected, but still not impressive at all.

Wow. Thank God I never joined an Abbey. I mean, when I was younger, I thought (once or twice, maybe) that it would be cool to hang out with a bunch of sweet monks, doing karate and cool stuff like that. I bet they are RIDICULOUS good at karate. But then I had this beer, and thought, "Maybe I should look into WWF Wrestling. I bet THOSE guys can make good beer..."

Dark colored with foamy white head... Fruit like flavored, sweet and bitter notes mixed together.
