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. I’d drink this again

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
