4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’m usually not one for Belgian beers and if I do have one I usually have to put a lemon in it. However, one look at this Abbey Ale rich head breathing in your challis and you’ll know why it has such a high rating. Then as if the aroma was enough of a treat the taste is just perfect. You will think to yourself, "Self, this is exactly the beer I needed."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden colour with thick persistent white head. Sweet aroma of bread and banana. Medium bodied and effervescent. A little sweet on the palate to start, however it dries out nicely with the carbonation and a touch of alcohol warmth. Not much bitterness, but still refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée limpide, mousse moyennement abondante et de tenue correcte. Classique parmi les classiques, une parfaite introduction au monde de la bière belge. Arômes épicés avec de la coriandre et de clous de girofle et une touche de banane. Peu complexe mais ronde et bien équilibrée. Carbonnation assez fine. Trouvée à intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear full shade of yellow with an off-white head. (Surprised to see it’s filtered.) Notes of clove, honey, light wet rock on the nose. Sweeter than I was expecting, it kind of comes across like a too sweet, underhopped tripel. Up front, sultana raisins, light honey, light mineral notes that turn into more nondescript sweetness, with light mineral hops, and clove in the finish. Very one dimensional. It’s like Belgian beer for beginners.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler, beautiful amber beer, skiff of foam. Aroma is apple cider, peach. Taste is apples, pineapple, cloves, some bitter citrus. Finish is sweet, but it sticky and cloying. Palate is smooth, but not thick. Carbonation is good, fine bubbles. Overall, I like this, especially as a holiday beer.

On tap. Almost orange colour with medium sticky white head, that slowly comes down. Cloudy liquid, medium body and lively carbonation. Sticky texture. Strong fruits and vanilla aroma. Taste is slightly alcoholic, a little bit of bananas, cytrus and fruits. Medium sweet and bitter. Quite long aftertaste. Enjoyed a lot.
