gorgeous gold-red color. slight head, no clinginess. quite thin mouthfeel but has some sort of ooomph. very apple-ish, reminds me of knight’s ale in a big way. tasty. it’s a toss up with knight’s ale, imho.

Not bad. I may have a bit of prejudice in favour of the Trappists when sampling a BSA, but this is a good solid beer with a lot of flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Light amber with a decent, lasting head and lace. Subdued aroma of light cookie dough, yeast, herbs, alcohol and more. Light to medium bodied, tame carbobation, a malty and yeasty flavor profile with notes peach, brown sugar, spicy alcohol, hops and more. Turns creamier and sweeter as it warms. Very drinkable, warming and satisfying. Reminds me of Chimay red a bit. Pissed me off because when I opened, it gushed everywhere and made a friggin mess. Good belgium. Thank you ecrvich.

Found this beer to be alot like the Leffe Blonde, had a distinct hint of citrus rind in the after taste.

Sweet, caramel malt flavor, something of a toffee taste, with notes of cookie and apples. A decent bitterness and a peppery spice round out this very drinkable beer.

Good belgian Ale. Weak head, very simmilar to Duvel in my opinion. Slightly odd aftertsate, but I like it. Can’t place it though.

Copper brown, foaming light beige thick head, slighlty lace. Yeast in nose at the start of the glass, but at finish also flowery and malty aromas. Sweet, yeasty, spicy aromatic, some alcohol, a bit sour, dry and mild hop aroma. Aftertaste is dry & sweet, a bit yeast-like and quite long.
