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.

Bottle Conditioned. Golden brown with large foamy head. Highly perfumed, piney nose with a grating background peel flavour. Bread notes.

Bottle. Dirty pale colour with an upside down drizzle and soft foam on top. I can't think of any reason why anyone thinks that it looks attractive. But each to their own. Smells like a wheat beer. I suspect there is wheat in here somewhere, which would account for the big head and long head retention. Initial crispness is quickly over taken by a sweet stickiness then by the alcohol. Some wheat beer spice in the finish. Belgian yeast evident throughout. Despite all my grumbling I enjoyed this brew. Finished it quite quickly as well.

I get a very different kind of buzz from this beer. Like getting high? Whatever it does, it's great. Has a great palate and very abnormal but mouth-watering aroma.

Draft - Cloudy yellow beer with great hoppy, sweet aroma. A great tasting beer with perfect carbonation and flavor. An quite enjoyable lunch beer.

Gotta love those Belgian hops and yeast. Nice mild hoppy aroma. Vanilla and floral tastes. Beautiful cloudy golden color.

sparkling gold, not as much cloudiness as I expected. fizzy voluminous head, lots of ester notes, banana, slight fruiti tartness. excellent mouth feel, decently prolonged semidry finish, alcohol completely obscurred

Pours cloudy yellow with big thick fluffy white head. Sweet on initial taste followed by a dry finish. Lightly fruity. Good.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
This beer poured a creamy golden colour that produced a monstrous head. It has a spicy vanilla bouquet. Very smooth flavor that becomes a little bitter towards the finish. A very well balanced ale . I'll definitely drink this again.

Very nice this one, but unfortunately my notes got lost, so this is from memory. Fairly simple for a abbey ale, but pleasant none the less.

Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg. Golden with an ok head. Aroma from yeast and band-aid. Rather thin with a late sourness.
