750ml Bottle. This one got me started on the trail of Belgian beer. Nice spicy, fruity aroma and taste. Smoother than I expected. Decent beer, easy to drink.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2005 330ml brown bottle. Golden/orange colour, some haze/suspended particles.
Head starts creamy, shrinks to leave a thin lacy layer atop the beer. Somewhat spicy and sweet aroma with yeast notes. In the mouth, sweet malts contrast against a yeasty bite.

Interbrew has crafted a textbook Abbey session beer. The philosophy behind this beer seems to be dinkabilty rather than complexity. Although, the beer is enjoyable it is on the sterile side.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus fruit and hops.
A little sweet with the flavor of the malt
dominating at first, but with a strange
tart finish I don’t remember when I’ve tried this beer before in bottles.

This is a nice beer, the body is dark golden in the color, head is big and creamy. The taste i fresh and fruity and reminds of summer, it´s very round and gentle. The smell is also fruity and contains also a bit of wheat. Overall an OK beer..

Pours yellow with thick white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is fairly muted in this beer with hops predominating. Tastes is very hoppy with apricot flavors coming through as the beer warms. OK but not my favorite.
