Drank with Ramenen. Bottle: Fruity taste, strong notes of pineapple and banana. Complex, lots of malts, cloudy and refreshing. Liked it.

Fruity, malty taste is right. This abbey ale is far more drinkable than many offerings that earn a higher rating on ths site. Id drink this again

Nice clear golden pour with a thick white head. Aroma was pleasant with hints of Yeast and lemon with some yellow grass as well. Tasted sweet and fruity. Had some traces of lemon and hops as well. Good stuff

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2007
So pale its almost white. Very clean, average size super white head. Big foam, nice lacing. Refreshing grassy lemon aroma. Smells like summer. Medium bodied, gentle sweet peppery flavor. Notes of yeast and subtle alcohol mostly noticible due to the warming effect.

Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Picked this up in Sainburys? (I think) a while back and good to try after the Dubbel. Good solid golden colour with a huge white fluffy head, yeasty aroma. Tasted very good with nice fruit, yeastyness and a lovely warming effect from the alcohol as this started to warm up.

Pours a unfiltered golen yellow color with a thin white head. Has hints of sweet fruits and barley. Finishes sweet on the tongue. Alcohol is masked very well.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle from Copper Gate in Seattle (very cool bar). Poured a big fluffy head atop a light golden body. Sour apple flavor that was slightly sweet. Finished slightly bitter with a decent hop presents.

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 25, 2007
Golden orangish color with a thin white head. Grass, yeasts and lemon on the nose. Intense yeast flavor with a nice fruity aftertaste (lemon). Alcohol esthers warm up the mouth perfectly but alcohol is not noticed in any other aspect of the beer, and it has a lot (6.7%). Good blonde beer.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2007
Wonderful yeast aroma. Strong frothy head. Appropriate golden color. Sweetness of malt flavor was delectable, but I got a bit of an astringent finish. May have been the age of the beer - imports can be tough sometimes with freshness.
