The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very fine, creamy foam. The beer is strong but very drinkable, a little bit sweet. Well done!

Poured a slightly hazy dark yellow. Fruity aroma. Taste was pretty standard for an abbey ale. More sweet and fruity than expected, however. Overall not bad.

Not as bad as one might expect it to be. Rather better than the dubbel, but not a favourite of the noble Crabapple family.

The Grimbergen is an average Abbey Blonde. The cloud-like frothy head is very unique. The beer pours with a nice golden hue and the flavors are very light, slightly fruity, and malty.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slighly hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma is candi sugar, very light hops, and fruity yeast. Grainy malt and fruity yeast flavors dominate with a little yeast funk. Very spritzy carbonation.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
The aroma has notes of yeast and the head is weak. The flavour has notes of hops and flower and a grapefruit-like acidity takes over and dominates the rest of the experience, and my taste buds went num. I know a lot of people like this one, but I’m not fond of this kind of acidity, even if I like very bitter beers.

Quack-Duck (8415) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2007
0,75l bottle. Clear golden colour. Aroma of rotten fruit. Flavours of malt, fruit and gingerbread. Shy fruity sourness, could be due to the E300.

bigcat03 (211) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Poured into my Watou trappist glass. One finger white head that fades quick and a medium gold blonde color. To the nose are malt, sugar, a very light hop presence, and cotton candy. The taste holds ots of malt along with apples, perhaps granny smith as there is a bit of a sour/tartness. The aftertaste has Malt, yeast, apple, and other assorted fruits. A thin medium body with high carbonation. The aroma, which I enjoyed, faded quickly. This beer feels like Leffe Blonde but not quite as good.

MOgirl (2) - gladstone, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2007 does not count
appearance is honey blonde with a long lastintg, finely beaded off white head. Flavor is like honey, nutty and baby food. it feels prickely and medium bodied. this is something i wouldn’t drink all the time but would buy again.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 21, 2007
Bottled. A clear blonde beer, with a medium sized and disappearing white head. Quite sweet malty aroma with slight spicy and peppery notes and a hint of alcohol. The flavour has some fruitiness and a light bitterness in the finish. Dry, light to medium bodied with high carbonation (perhaps too high). The aftertaste is not so long. Far from bad, but too industrial and not satisfacting.
