2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is fruit/peaches and malts, like a fruit ale meets a bitter. The flavor is Belgian yeast, sugar sweetness and a mild fruit tartness in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours brownish orange. Thick head dissappears quickly. Grassy notes on the nose, some barnyard earthiness that is not very pleasent. Some sweet malt comes through but so does some metal on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma of yeast, some floral notes, and some rust. Orangeish-brown. Mild honeyish sweetness; mid palate is much the same; final is mildly sweet and continues the yeast. Medium body. Okay, but a bit bland. Not much complexity. Drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Estery, fruity nose, candi sugar, honey, peach, some banana. Pale amber color with a fine head.
Sweet, fruity flavor, sugary, non-descript but not bad. A typical abbey blonde: too swet, somewhat boring. Very estery, with a somewhat dry finish, some bitterness. Ok.
