Pours slightly hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast and sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a grainy and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Alengrin (1237) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
The younger, ’weaker’, regular blonde version of Het Kapittel Abt, with creamy foam and peach blonde colour. Malty, fruity esters, some DMS (red cabbage) too; sweet main taste, even a bit cloying in the finish, which is insufficiently hopped to my taste. Nevertheless a well-rounded, honest and enjoyable session beer.

dfinney23 (1643) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours clear gold with a thick head that fades to a thin cap as it continues to effervesce. Aroma of yeast, spice and grass. Taste is similar but doesn’t quite add up.

SlovakSniper (3105) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
L’oeil est monastique. Le nez est classique avec sa levure épicée, ses céréales à la belge, sa tranche fruitée et ses effluves d’herbes. Le goût doux montre une banane avec des épices qui proviennent à la fois de la levure et des malts. En bouche, c’est confortable, huileux et relativement bas en terme de pétillement. En finale, rien ne dépasse, tout est bien enligné, sans risque mais sans défaut et sans aucun doute plaisant et bien facile.

Een heel lekker blond bier. Heel lekkere smaak, een aanrader om eens te proberen

mathieuc (1246) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a good golden with a medium white head that settles into a thin film and leave light lacing. Nose is of fruits, spices (pepper, light cloves) and sweet dough. Taste is moderately sweet, maybe a touch more than I’d like and lightly bitter. Flavors are once again fruity with some bananas, spices and some sweet grains. Body is medium, carbonation low to medium and alcohol is pretty well hidden. Overall it is better than I expected (I thought the Pater was horrid, at least the bottles I’ve had were) and actually pleasing.

Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy bright golden with a medium fully lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, herbal notes, light spiciness and cereals. Taste is yeasty and moderately spicy with malt and herbal presence. Very light metallic presence. Medium body. Medium carbonation (a tad fizzy). Moderately lasting herbal aftertaste. Light alcohol presence. Tasty and well executed Belgian Ale. Better than expected. Decent drinkability.

Necscv (19) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Wheat and Pear on the nose. Yellow, murky, little lacing. Spicy yeast, white grapes on the tongue, silky, not a lot going on on the finish, a little plasticky.
