At home. Tulip glass. 27/05/16. Gift from my parents - the most interesting looking beer they could see in a Spanish supermarket. Looks flat. Dark amber. Pungent vegetable aroma. Doesn’t really taste like a Belgian beer. Going back to the flat theme, I’d compate the tate and palate to a flat lager.Not interesting. Not offensive.

33 cl. bottle@ the apartment in Corralejo, Fuerteventura, bought @ a local supermarket. Clear copper colour with a thin white head. Malty caramel aroma. Sweet taste with some traces of smoke in the finish. Overall too boozy, sweet and rough to be truly enjoyable.

0.33 l bottle. Deep amber-light brown color, no head. Sweet, alcoholic aroma and taste with alcoholic finishing. Leaves a dry feeling in the mouth. Soft carbonation, medium body. The too much alcohol in the taste ruins it for me.

DraftDodger (886) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2016
Los Cristianos, Tenerife. 33 cl bottle from Mercadonas. Drawing of Monastery to underline that this is "the first Spanish Abbey ale". Poulsen clear amber with off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Quite a lot of lacing on the side of thde glass. Aroma has a little Belgian touch with some notes of yeast. Caramel, brown sugar and a little butter. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is sweet with notes of caramel and Brown sugar. Followed by light bitterness supplemented by notes of alcohol. Looks quite beautiful. But dissapoints a little when it comes to smell and taste. It takes more than a Monastery to make a Belgian ale.

tfredvik (1641) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2016
Clear medium amber to brown body with a very large, fairly creamy off-white head. Good lacing. Moderate to strong aroma of pale malts, it’s quite lager-ish despite some nice traces of spicy Belgian yeast. Strong flavour of pale malts, with a lager-like hoppy bite, plus some more interesting hints of Belgian yeast and spices. Light sweet taste with a moderate bitterness. A bit sharp mouthfeel, light on the palate, fairly lively carbonated. Feels like a 50/50 mix of Heineken and Leffe Blonde. Strange.
[33 cl bottle enjoyed in my hotel room, from SuperCOR Exprés, Calle Vallehermoso, Madrid]

Really bad beer. Awful aroma: notes from oxidation, vegetables... In mouth, sour is present. Watery sensation. Horrible abbey beer.

Copper amber color with minimal head and not very pleasant smell. Taste so vulgar.
