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.

darker than one is used to for the style, and fairly flavorful as well. better than average, but not wuite a standout, as it’s #2 rank implies. good dose of hopping and crisp malt sweetness make this a nice summer quencher."
not as good on repeat visit.
