Slight bit of fruit, and a moderate alcohol flavor and aroma. The alcohol hard about halfway through the sip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 11.2 oz bottle. Always thought I had rated this until I did a sort on the highest number of ratings and this popped up as unrated - good enough reason to make a trip to the beer store! Anyways - medium golden pour, light, tight white head, faint lacing. Fresh aroma of bubble gum and nectarines. Same frutiness spills over to the flavor with some candied sugar sweetness, hints of bubble gum and and some banana flavoring (the artificial variety). Mouthfeel is thick and sticky and a highlight of this one. Very drinkable and approachable Belgian Ale - good starter beer for those just delving into beer geekness.

Bottle. Golden with a red glow and a big white head. Fruit, yeast and alcohol in aroma. Sweet flavour with fruit and some spices.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 Bottle, dark golden colour with a large frothy white head. Sweet malty aroma with touches of yeast. Quite a sweet palate again, but with a good peppery spiciness. Pretty good and I find much better from the bottle than on draught.

semi-light, sugary, bready; slightly fruity beer, slightly yeasty, slightly prickly afterward; sweet pastry flavor... a nice, little belgian ale.

If someone doesnít like sweet beers, can say, itís Little bit too sweet, but canít say itís for women (in Poland lots of people say, sweet beers are for women, i donít know how itís in other countries). Besides taste is not very strong and very characteristical.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Nice blond abbey beer. You donít taste much of the 6,6% alcohol volume and thatís a good thing I think. Pleasant taste, a bit sweet and fruity. Very refreshing

Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2006 on 18/11/06 - Always a good, safe bottled beer. Strong and sweet, but refreshing. If I get a bottle of this, it is not "Leffe" in the fridge for very long!

Just like itís companion, the brune, this holds too many estery banana notes for my taste. Itís quite weissbier like. Lucky me there are so many better abbey beers.
