Like its brown countpart it pours with a great "stirofoam" head. Has a golden colour. However it is not as complex in taste as the brown malt and yeast are evident and the overall finsh is quite sweet.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear medium golden, very lively carbonation. head is creamy white with moderately large bubbles. lacing is excellent. aroma is very strong of barnyard, wood, musty and peaches. aroma is impressive for this one, but too bad that doesnt carry over to the flavor. very light bodied and too sweet. still moderately pleasant though. this one gets points for aroma only

I was very disapponted with this beer. It was very light and lacked the many complex flavors i found in other abby’s. It was the first "blonde" abby i have had.

Sweet cake mix-like nose. Clean gold color and big spongy head. Vanilla tones and hints of oranges are well blended with the light malt body. For a light colored beer this has a big full body and creamy mouth feel.

Fruity orange nose. Golden Color with laces. Fruity and sweet. Thin but refreshing. Bitter short finish.

Nice and smooth, but lacking in bite (taste that is, not ABV--the 6.6.% is well hidden). A Belgian Ale for those starting out on Belgian ales (it helped me) but not one of the more complex members of the club.

Great toffee sweet sort of aroma, but the flavor didn’t totally come through to back it up. Nice mouthfeel, a little fizzy, a little creamy. Pale golden, like the description says. I think this would go well with a dessert of some kind, maybe ice cream with some toffee or caramel.
