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.

Clear copperish golden with a thin rocky head. Earthy and slightly fruity nose with a bit of pear and woody tones. Lightish flavor with pear and bright estery malt and a little grape. Meh.

Can sampled at the Destihl tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/26/15. Pours clear gold in color with a thick white head. Aroma consists of malt, light tartness and banana. Malty flavor with banana and slight tartness before a bready dry finish.

Cloudy yellow amber pour big white head. Aroma raisins, wheat. Tastes banana, cloves, peppery slight raw breadiness. Nice dry finish, but needs some more character, some more darkness.

12 oz. can from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, golden yellow color, clear, good lacing, head does not last. Aroma: fruity malt and yeast, light caramel, light floral hops. Palate: light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, slightly cloying. Taste: sweet fruity and caramel malt, the sweetness is slightly cloying, and tails into some floral hops. Overall, I like it, but it is nothing special, and for an abbey single, not very true to style.

12 oz can, purchased as a "craft your own 6 pack". Aroma of cut grass, maybe some clove. The only positive thing about the appearance was that it wouldn’t have to stop and change colors going thru the system. Big white frothy head.. This beer was watery, thin, fizzy and astringent. This was the first Belgian Style Abbey Single I’ve tried. This beer did nothing for me. I’ve tried one or two other beers from this brewery and they were fine. Not my style of beer.
