3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Redish brown, thick fluffy head. Surprisingly limp aroma compared with the blonde, had side-by-side. Heavy carbonation makes this a bit sharp if even a little too cool - let it warm and settle a bit. Taste is fairly bitter, both hoppy and burnt malts. However, itís a mellow bitterness, and not at all intrusive. Very tasty, never a bad option.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Trappist Glass.
It has a nice dark brownish red look to it with a off whiteish head that lingers and is thick. A nice capping for the beer.
Aroma of yeast barley and Dark friut.
Lovely lacing on the glass as it goes down, that keeps you wanting more.. Tastes fruitty, but not sickly sweet with a slight caramel aftertaste. I think itís quite high in the carbonation. It is one of the better choices for a popular easy to get hold of abbey ale.

Tried this one up in Canada. Not bad, but I think I like Leffe Blonde better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. poured brown (when held against light its actually very dark red) with a medium off white head. lots of carbonation. subdued aromas of yeast, barley, malt and some dark fruit. the aromas were subtle and had to be coaxed out off the glass as the beer warmed. flavours were similar. lots of good stuff in there but very thin with no complexity. overall it was ok but there is much better out there. maybe a good way to introduce someone to the style.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great beer. Itís smooth and has a nice refreshing, and definately a bit full, mouthfeel. It has a good aroma with itís own uniqueness to it. The taste is nice, with a fuirt and spice mixture in it, one that is more apparent in its aftertaste. I also felt that the color was a beautiful one, although dark for an ale. The head disappeared a bit faster than it should, although not in a too quick way, which caused a 4 instead of a five in appearance. Itís one of the best beers, especially of its strength, Iíve tasted so far, but Iím still new to the Belgian ones. I felt it was a great beer that I would drink regularly, one that held true to its reputation of being a high quality Belgian Abbey Beer.

Pours a deep brown brew. Notes of malt and chocolate and fruit. Sweet taste with a nice vinous hoppy finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Crafton. Clear darker brown rootbeer appearance. Thin creamy head. Mild sweetish candy aroma. Aroma reminds me of Corsendonk in itís own peculiar way. Barley any (if any) carbonation greets the palate. The brew at times comes across with a certain wine like character with itís lack of carbonation. . This is about on par with the Leffe Blonde as far as enjoyability goes. The Blonde may be a tad better. Has a medium bitterness that build thru the session. Beautiful lacing, just enough to let you peak thru to the nakedness of this brew.
