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.

GTAEgeek (1843) - 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 (415) - 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.

Pale golden pour with a thin wispy head. Slight metallic aroma. Taste has some banana and some farmhouse funk. Slightly sweet. Medium bodied. Refreshing. A little lace present. Aroma is super faint, some floweriness. Tastes better than it smells.

ajnepple (4826) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2016
12 oz single can from Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Medium to dark orange and slight hazy appearance with a white head. Aroma of light fruity esters, toasted grain, light banana and spicy yeast. Similar flavor, adding moderate sweetness and a light floral, noble hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry finish. OK.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Can. Pours an effervescent clear gold. Big white head leaves a thin film and spotty lacing. Light, American version of a Belgian. Light aromas and tastes of fruit; especially peaches. Taste is somewhat grainy with a bit of spice from the hops. Thin mouthfeel with a dry finish. I think this IS what they were going for; a decent sessionable.

Pleasant enough Belgian table beer, though not as rustic as if prefer in that style. Very light nose and flavor, but it’s pleasant fruit phenols, yeast and florals. Thin feel is ok.
