330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy yellow, thick white head, high carbonation, bit gassy actually. Light soapy aromas, light lemon citrus. Taste brings a spicy note, but mostly a bit soapy. Coriander comes through. Thin, fizzy, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Moderate lemongrass, a little ointment, some hay and Pinot Grigio. Appearance: Translucent pale gold pour with lively carbonation supporting a foamy white head. Flavor: White wine meets lemongrass up front; ointment/slight gum becomes more prevalent mid-palate; dried out, but slightly yeasty finish. A little clove comes through as this warms. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Overall: Definitely worth a shot for Belgian beer lovers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The latest Sint-Bernardus, an ’enkel’ inspired by similar ’refectory beers’ from the trappist monks, tasted at De Vlasbloem in Sint-Pauwels. Snow white, moussy, stable head over a deep golden blonde, misty beer. Aroma shows subdued fruitiness, pear, apricot, peach, pineapple, but also cardboard, baker’s yeast, white bread, dried orange peel, raw potatoes, grass, tea leaves. Soft, restrained, vaguely sweetish fruitiness in the mouth, peach and pear again, sharp carbonation, minerally, over a bready yeastiness and somewhat grainy maltiness, dryish, with yeasty, leafy and grassy hop bitterish and slightly malty finish. Well-made Belgian blond abbey beer, but somehow I expected more from this, being a member of the noble Sint-Bernardus family...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amazing beer. Estery, like apricots and pears. Black pepper and clove. Dry, but great thick mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Fantastic table beer. A bit of a soapy aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has light golden color and a full white head, with a lot of CO2. The aroma is grassy, floral, spicy, fruity (hints of banana and citrus) and a little yeast is noticable. The taste is spicy and light sour but also a nice hop bitterness in the end is noticable. The taste is well balanced. The finish is refreshing and a light bitter. A nice ale, which reminds me of a white beer. Not as good as the rest of beers from Bernardus, but I like the idea to brew a low alcohol beer.
