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.

I just did not know what to make of this beer, i had consumed too many european light lagers when i had this one, it surprised my olfactory senses and taste buds. lots of esters in the aroma with a malty backbone. the golden body held a lovely white head that did not want to dissipate. the flavor was very yeasty and spicy at first. the finish was lightly bitter with decent balance. I had no idea that this beer was 7.5% while i was tasting it, in fact i didnt know that until just now and i am very surprised.

This is, in my opinion as good as a Trappist, full of aromas, fruit and damp cellars aso. Full body and a cloudy appearence, and a distinct bitterness lurking behind all the fruity flavors

Flowery belgian ale aroma. Beautiful golden and big head. Fullbodied and fruity. A bit vineous and yeasty. Leaves with the sense of a job well done.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2003 Huge white head. Mod lacing and good mouthfeel. Light and citrusy with lots of yeasty taste. I must admit that at first I was put off by the fizziness. This beer grew on me as it warmed and mellowed. I will repurchase.

Another great one from Corsendonk, though maybe a BIT less delicious than the abbey brown, in my opinion.

complexe smell, fruity, sweet and aromatic, well balanced between swettness and bitterness .

Very large white head witha tawny, hazy yellow appearance. Slightly spicy with a prominent hop flavor. Very light and refreshing, not at all as strong as others in the style category.

2010-08-11, bottle at RisRas, Århus, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Hazy blond color. Dry aroma of malt and spice. Good body structure, very spicy flavor, with all the complexity and balance of the Best Belgian beers, and no flaw. Good bitterness, light final fruitness. Very good.

2003-01-11, draught, 8-5-8-4-15=40
Clean golden color; generous thick head. Nice aroma, some malt, roasted malt and spices. Even more drinkable than Pater, alcohol perfectly hidden; less sweet, less hoppy, more delicate spices. Very good, but less original than Pater.

A quite fruity and nice beer. It’s almost like a wheat beer. I will recommend the draught version.
