Bottle. Clear yellow with a thick but fast-fading white head. Taste is a bit sweet, hardly any bitter. A bit too flat for me

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer decamps the stubby bottle a slightly beclouded coppery color with a magisterial bright white head that settles slowly, the lace forms a concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose has an apple like fruit aroma, malt and bit of sour dough bread. Front has a tangy sweetness, with the malt adequate, hard apple cider comes to mind and palate, top is medium to light in feel. Finish is desert bone dry; hints of hops and the hard cider last to the very end, not what I expected, not bad, but not that good either, drinkable but a disappointment as I love most all their beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color was murky golden with light orange hues. The head had a medium thickness. It was white and frothy. The aroma was a very apparant citrisy lemon note. There were light hops as well. The flavor was light lemon and orange citrisy hops. It reminded me of a belgian white.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Swiped from the WBF. Pours a fairly thin golden with a medium offwhite head. Would have liked more haze or subsistence in the pour. Some lacing though. Aroma is sweet, fruit, spice, mild must, some alcohol, Curacao, . The flavor is crisp, slightly dry, Curacao, zesty lemongrass, mild spice, some grassy hops and a mild funk. Tastes fairly "tripelish" but deviates in a few areas, mainly alcohol and some facets of the flavor. Not too bad though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden ale with large head. Sweet malty and citrus dominated aroma. Flavor with notes of wheat and malt. Medium body and good balance in this nice simple abbey beer.
