Thanks to Chuck for sharing. The beer pours to a bright copper/golden body with a thin white head. Hazy with noticeable carbonation. The aroma is very nice. Reminds me of the hay fields. Also black pepper and dried apricots. The flavor is melons and hay and apricots. Spicy. Decent. The palate is a bit syrupy with noticeable alcohol. Almost drying to the palate.

Thanks to Herzon at the Milwaukee Yeha. Hazy straw color with a taller fluffy white head. Light fruit and mild citrus and pepper hops come to play in the aroma. Light and spritzy feel. Light pale malt with a touch of orange zest and melon. Some candi and dry honey also seem to be in the profile. Warming as it continues. a very nice triple effort.

Lemon, citrusy aroma with a hint of pepper in the aroma. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Lemon citrus flavor with some peppery spice and a bit of caramel malt in the finish. Nice and sweet. Palate is a little full and could get cloying. Thanks to EyeDrinkAle for the bottle.

Bottle, yellow gold pour. Kinda spicy bready yeasty candied aroma. Flavors of Belgian yeast, with spiced corriander and lemon and maybe banana. Kinda on the sweet side. Decent Belgian ale.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Textbook Belgian pour - pure gold with a creamy, ivory head. The slightly meaty nose pulls together the light fruity yeast with hints of spiced pear, wlidflower honey and apple. Medium body with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. More light fruit in the body - all honey coated - sweet but not overly done. Perfumey hops throughout add to the lightness of this. Warms my stomach nicely. A great example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yum - smells like honey, spice, sweet malts and pepper. Gorgeous to look at; glowing golden, thick white head, great lacing. Thick malts in a softly carbonated body give this a nice palate, although it bordered on syrupy once or twice. Honey coated summer fruits followed by a dry peppery finish. Good stuff - but why’s the monk on the label carrying a mailbox?
