To look at this beer, you might think it’s a lager, maybe even a pilsner. To smell it, you might think it’s a wheat beer. Taste it and you’ll know it’s an abbey ale. Spicy, fruity and a touch of alcohol. Went well with my steak and drank a little too quickly for the price.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color, with an aroma of lemon citrus and other fruits. The taste has both the sweetness expected from a blond beer, with fruity notes, as some more unexpected bitterish flavours. It is easier to drink than its brunette sister beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich amber color with medium-sized, tan head. Banana and lemon aroma. Medium-bodied, slightly sweet, malty taste with a hint of the higher abv in the finish. All in all, a beer that is easy to drink, especially in the summer (like a wheat beer).

Transparent yellow with foamy white head. Nose implies sweetness and reveals some yeastiness too. A banana flavour jumps out at my tongue as does an overall spiciness which is accented by alcohol notes after a couple of sips. Leaves a pleasant feel in mouth although the alcohol starts to gain the upper hand.

Pours golden yellow with large bibbling white head. Aromatic with sweet hops, creamy light fruit. Flavor is darker than expected with woody, cardboard notes and light citrus, banana. Smooth character with a clean finish.

golden with a pretty white head. Smooth and easy to drink. Does nothing to seperate itself from other Belgian blondes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a nearly clear blonde golden color with minimal head. Had a very yeasty aroma with some lemons going on. I was watching some around the horn and PTI while having this. Not a bad session beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The bottle is rather typical for Belgian beers, colorful and full of promise. Light golden colour, white head. Flavor is mild and very sweet, similiar to wheat beers. Getting even sweeter sitting in my glass for a few minutes.
