janubio (587) - - JUL 27, 2013
330 ml. bottle. Amber colour, off white head that fades soon, leaving a minimal lace. Smells of damp earth, some faint notes of caramel and fruits. Too much carbonation for a light body. Taste of caramel, with some spices and herbs. A big company trying to say they make good beer. Just a normal one, and not much to do with a real abeey beer.

tfredvik (1555) - 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.

Bottle@jeppe Santa Anne. One finger foam. Dark golden. Malty sweet. Fruity esters. Clean. Low body. A bit boring.

Gurthnar (4097) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle. Quite drinkable. Full malty flavour, caramelly, toffee, toasted. Only light oxidation, but not very disturbing. Overall a pleasant beer considering where it comes from.

From Carrefour. In Legado de Yuste glass. Watching Breaking Bad 5x01.MG! This an abbey beer? Any monk would be ashamed of this junk. Brewing this is probably be unholy, a sin. Seems like a bad sweet macro lager

25 cl bottle bought in Lisbon.Amber colour with nice head.Toasted malt and caramel taste.I hate beers that contain sugar and I’m guessing that this sugar was not intended for bottle fermentation.Meh
