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.

One of my favorites so far. Aroma is apricots and pears. It has a wonderfully big head and decent lacing. Flavor is apricots and a bit of spice. Wonderful mouthfeel.. very smooth. I'm very pleased with this one.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2003 This beer pours nice and clear - very golden. Large head quickly diminishes, leaving a few trace lacings. Nose is citrusy, with a little malt, and a nice bready aroma. I was dissapointed with the taste... Perhaps I'm too used to thick, dark stouts, but this felt more like a medium-bodied lager, than a pale ale. Stick with the brown - it's much more robust.

Sweet malty aroma slight spice and must to it. Light cloudy golden yellow; with a large fluffy white head to it. Very pleasing malty sweet, slight citrus and spice flavour. Beautiful feel. Excellent beer.

Pour this beer gently, indeed. Out of the 750 ML bottle, it fills a glass with an enormous, rocky white head due to its bottle conditioning. There are some rather large bubbles and the head does melt away rather quickly with only scant lacing on the glass. The beer itself is a pale, golden yellow color. There is a complex aroma of yeast, light hops and citrus. The palate itself is light bodied and superbly refreshing, with a dry, bubbly champagne-like front end that quickly yields to lemon and grapefruit notes with a hint of hops and, perhaps, coriander. There is a slight, but not unpleasant, hint of alcohol in the short, dry finish.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Beer pours (in corsendonk glassware) a large, foamy head. Color is lightly golden. Initial aroma is of straw, grass, but difinitely gives way to a citrus, lemon-orange. Head quickly collapses to accept more beer in glass. Easily drinkable, hiding its alcohol content well. Has the taste of tree leaves with mixed citrus fruits leaving a definite hoppy (not happy, hoppy) ending. Very good for a blonde beer - will drink again. Digital air conditiner readout says 71 degrees. Beer sampled at 71 degrees, then.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Appearance identical to the pic. Aroma was full of alcohol and citrus. The taste was a nice crisp mixture of citrus & hops. A very nice beer to have at any time but especially enjoyable in the hot summer.

Moderate fruity nose and flavour. Some prominent alcohol notes in the beer are unpleasant. Very clean belgian.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Slightly cloudy light golden color with a luscious creamy white head. Medium carbonation. Smelled mainly of pears and apricots, with a light hint of green apple. Taste was of peaches, pears, golden raisons and banana with an overlay of candy sugar sweetness. No discernable hop or malt flavors. Reminded me of a lighter version of Duvel. Very pleasant.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2003
A simple wonderful pale ale/trippel. Light clear beer with a soft noise. The first sip could be mistaken for an american micro, but the abbey flavors sneak up on you on the next sip.

BBB63 (6394) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2003
Somewhat hazy golden color, good head and some lacing, full-bodied. Pear, grapefruit, pine, clove, mild cheese all detected in the aroma, complex. The fruity and spicy tones are subdued by a nice malt presence, vinous as well. Dry finish, lighty alcoholic with lingering fruitiness. While I'm more of a fan of the Abbey brown, this is still a very good beer.
