COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. It’s always been a simple life – the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldn’t sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we weren’t sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

On the bus to ZBF. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a nice, small, creamy, white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is malty, some yeast, a touch of alcohol, hay, grass, caramel, toffee. Medium carbonation, fair, lightly dry mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet, chewy malts, some orange-like tartness and a super hoppy balance. Very dry finish with a long lingering bitter touch.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Aroma of grassy hop, peach, apricot, pale malt, yeast. Honey? Slightly hazy orange tinged gold color with a decent white head that laced just a little. Medium body with thin, but creamy, carbonation. The flavor is astringent (not exactly a flavor, but ...) with peppery spice, floral hop, and pale and/or bready malt. The finish is also a bit astringent, decently dry, and has a floral/bitter hop aspect. It’s really, really, a pleasure.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy pale golden color with a fluffy white head and some spotty lacing. S: The nose is very heavy on the clove and coriander with some spicy hops. There is a bit of breadiness to it as well. T: The spices completely dominate the flavor. There’s a very earthy flavor to the beer as well. These two factors really overwhelm everything else, unfortunately. M: The body is medium with a crisp, dry carbonation and feeling on the tongue. D: This beer just seemed too heavily spiced for its own good. The base of the beer is overshadowed by these flavors.
