COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

This Abbey ale pours with a nice amber color with a soft, white foamy head. A softly balanced bouquet of malt had hops. Full bodied pale ale, bold malt flavor with crisp hints of citrus and lightly hopped finish. Wonderful.

Sampled draught at Freys Hörna, Stockholm, Sweden
Amber coloured, clear, brief head. Rich toffee aroma. Sweet and rounded. Beautiful stable, soft maltiness and soft mouthfeel. Velvetty finish with low bitterness. A very likable well balanced beer.

(330ml bottle) Pours a very foamy, thick, white head and a golden amber body with HUGE carbonation activity. Cloves with bubblegum nose. Slightly acidic. Lovely complexity. Lemon, coriander, cloves, sweet. Desirable. Great stuff!

This beer was a pain in the ass to find on the site. ** Out of the blue, my buddies’ girlfriend went into his refrigerator and opened this beer, put it in a coolie and brought the bottle to me. It was a nice gesture on her part but I was not planning on drinking this beer tonight. After she brought an opened bottle out, I had to drink it, so I poured it in the only clean glass in his house, an American pint glass, and drank from that. * But what I got was a beautiful foggy golden ale, with a fat two-finger pillow of a head. This beer had a nice lacing throughout its entire life in my glass. This Monks Pale Ale had a medium oily palate with a yeasty bread like aroma and flavor. I also detected notes of banana, overly ripe pears, and wheat. Although a very good brew, this beer seemed fairly simplistic; I would like to sample it again soon.

Golden color & mildly cloudy. Well carbonated but not real fizzy. Complex flavors throughout - hops & malts are well balanced. Nice Belgain twang as well. Very nice beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Mild hop aroma with grapefruit, banana, clove. Slightly hazy yellow color with great lacing and overall appearance. Slightly hoppy flavor with certain Belgian wit complexities. Sweet and tart, refreshing and delightful. Very good Belgian with a nice dose of hops to counter the spiciness.

I really enjoyed the subtleties and complexities this one offered before ven enjoying the first taste. The aroma is exquisite. I do not believe this one is as good as the Christmas Ale, but definitely a runner up. Very light in color like a witbier, but a head that just stays and lacing that is present throught the duration of the drink. Powerfully hoppy and complex with a balance that is impressive. Finish is noble with a slightly sweet bitterness.

Very good... not as good as the Corsendonk brown ale, but still excellent. A little lighter in color, a little more alcohol in flavor. I missed the grapes and fruity taste. If you haven't tried the Brown Ale, then you haven't tasted Corsendonk.
