COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian-style abbey ale crafted like those that Trappist monks brew for their own session beer. It is light bodied, light in color and relatively lower in alcohol with spicy phenolics and complex fruity esters of cherries, nectarines, peaches and bubblegum with a characteristic slightly tart and dry finish from the Belgian yeast.

Can. Pours a golden color with a fair head and spots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, trace of fruit, spice and yeast. Taste of caramel, bit of fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, smooth and quite carbonated. Better than expected.

Pour is a dark golden with a average white head. Aroma is a helping of the yeast with a big helping of some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more of a dull dry malt not much of the yeast esters show up. Finish is dry and bready malt. This was just o.k. Not much of a yeast presence but on the other hand it was not as sweet as I thought it would be. This was more like a marzen than Belgian ale.

MrBunn (2727) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Can. Pours a brownish amber with a thin head and toffee aromas with a bit of leaf litter and earth. Flavor is kind of nutty and watery. Not my favorite take on the style.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Pours clear golden orange with a small head. The aroma has bread, caramel and smooth Abbey yeast. It has a medium smooth body with fairly sharp carbonation. The taste has drier notes and has a little spice and some woodiness. Decent.

Draft. Deep golden body, frothy white head. Light aroma of cobweb, basement mustiness, straw, pear. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not a lot going on here. Taste of floral hops, toasted grain, light spice.

It pours golden with a white full head that produce some lace. The head is long lasting and there is some haze to the color. There are aromas of bubblegum, cherries, spice, peaches, and yeast. There are flavors of sweet malt, basement elements, slight bubblegum, and slight fruity esters. It has a light body with a somewhat dry finish. There is a high amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a wonderful aromatic beer with a light body that makes for a decent session ale.

GTAEgeek (1894) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2016
12 oz. can. Beautiful, unclear orange, with a big, bubbly, eggshell head. The nose is orange peel, bubblegum, cardamom, spruce, and hay. Semi-sweet, with a mild bitterness. Light to medium body, dry and astringent, with a crisp, clean finish. This is a light and simple beer, but nice, refreshing, and interesting.

Beachmaster (444) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Can into a tulip. Pours a clear straw yellow, with a small white head that quickly fades. Nose is Belgian yeast notes of clove and bubblegum. Taste is like a watery Belgian abbey ale. I wanted more flavor. There’s also a weird metallic note on the finish. Drinkable, but could have been better.

Can. Amber beer with a cream head. Yeast and spice aroma with light fruitiness. Spice and yeast flavor with light banana. Medium bodied. Spice and yeast lingers with backing malts.
