1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Just like it’s companion, the brune, this holds too many estery banana notes for my taste. It’s quite weissbier like. Lucky me there are so many better abbey beers.

A beautifully crafted ale with sublimely smooth balanced delivery; rounded fruity hoppy aroma and rewarding long finish make this one a masterpiece.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just had this for the first time a little bit ago. A perfectly good beer with a nice amber colour and a head that descends a little and sits there. Definately has a fruity taste, which I initially thought to be banana and most here agree, so I’ll go with that. Nice finish that doesn’t leave an aftertaste. Easy to drink with a nice palate.

Yellow body with a small white head.
Aroma from wheat and dough. Flavor sweet, banana and fruits. An ok Belgian Ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Golden in color. Thin white head. Heavy aroma of banana nut bread. Sweet malt, fruit, nuts, yeast are a few flavors. A little too much sweet malt for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle. Golden-orange with just a film of persistent head. Aroma is spicy, with a hint of fruit. There is initial bitterness, but after that the taste is quite sweet - even the alcohol underlay seems sticky-sweet. The spice (cloves) continues as well with the addition of a yeasty flavour on the sides. Good, but not as good as I thought it’d be; too sweet.

Not much aroma, but tastes good. Really pretty malty throughout, but a very nice belgian blonde. Not as good as their brun, but decent.

I had this in Dieppe, France while I waited for my ferry. The premium beers seemed to be out of stock so this did. The alcohol content is approproate for this yeasty beer that has a touch of a spice. Its a starter beer for abbeys.
