3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An enjoyable beer that makes a nice change from the standard IPA. Distinctive "Belgian" taste and not too strong (to have another) - what’s not to like.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy golde n colour, huge white head, which collapses quickly; aroma and taste of yeast, grassy hops and some malts - very similar to Maredsous 10, with a bit less hop dominance and body and a bit more carbonation; great ale

Bottle from Albert Heijn. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin slightly broken white head. The aroma is big yeast. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium to weak bodied with medium carbonation. Not as good as the 8 or 10 and a poor blond to be honest.

Golden abbey ale, nice taste, head disappears quick, fresh and fancy. Good all-around, just not exceptionnal.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Nice clear golden pour with a tall white head. Aroma is of pale malt, sugar, and bananas. Some pear and apple notes as well. A bit of clove and white pepper spiciness and a touch of tart lemon zest. Flavor is nicely sweet with a subtle fruity tartness. Sugar, pale malt, and lemon zest. A bit of banana and underripe pear. Slight spice and yeast notes. Pleasant and easy drinking.

Nice apéritif blond, dry taste, some fruity notes. Nice and lasting foam. Perfect with some cheese before a meal

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very dry but fresh ale. The aroma is probably the best part. Very fruity, peaches, vanilla, and herbs. It is sweet and dry. Not a big after taste, just more of the same from the initial taste. A nice Belgian ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bu à la pression en 50cl, aucune mousse, et une couleur dorée limite ambrée.
Une bière avec peu de goût mais une petite amertume sympa, une bière de soif quoi...

Golden color, nice head. Just another blonde.... Aged version (BB 04-2005, sampled 05-10-2009, about 6 years old): Some port notes, very fruity, still quite thin, watery finish. Not really aging material.
