A good beer...but too much of a bread aroma to make it a GREAT beer. The taste was smooth and full and about what I expected but just too much of a sourdough smell for me. This beer is not common on tap nor is it in broad distrubution.

330 ml bottle poured a clear copper brown with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, spices, fruitiness and yeast. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, clove light fruit [banana] and toffee with a smooth sweet finish.

Beaver (1413) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 11.2 oz bottle, best before 8/8/08. Pours a tea color with a large but kind of fizzy off white head that retains well.

The aroma is metallic bananas, bready malt, yeast and a little clove.

The flavor is pretty mild. It’s some bready malt and sweet nuttiness with some very subdued spices and a little lightly metallic light bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a little harsh carbonation.

Overall, a little on the bland side, but the more I drank of it, the more I started to enjoy it.

Tejas (909) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Malty but not too sweet. Dry palate. Little bready flavor too. Maybe a little apple in the nose? OK, but nothing too special. Kind of expensive too. I think a 4pk was $13.99.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Semi-hazed, rusty and ruby brown in color with widespread tan cotton foam that’s one-inch tall for the head. Aroma revels in glory. Dates, whole wheat bread, brown sugar, caramelized prunes, golden raisins, nutmeg, maple fudge, anise and chocolate-dusted banana chips. Devine. Certainly a flavorful array. Pepper and flower petals introduce a sweet visage with a silhouette of chocolate butter, cloves and brown bread. Spiced intoxicating enclave. Chocolate dipped licorice sticks, pumpernickel, golden raisins and a plum flavored, milky cheesecake character. Creamy, palatable and an absolute enjoyment wherever the tongue tosses it. Everything melds so well. Brown sugar and seven-grain muffins help with the encore, along with cloves, bananas dipped in peppered cocoa butter and sweet recognition that lasts long into the night.

A complex flavor full of caramel and bitterness. I felt it was somewhat lacking in what I expected of an Abbey Ale though.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2006
Smells of sweet malted milk, caramel, nutmeg perhaps. Nice flavor. Very sweet but then also a finish that reminds me of a good espresso. Nice and quite quite dry. Quite a nice Belgian. I havent had one in a while.

SHIG (3851) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 26, 2006
Dark brown with light brown froathy head. Very sour floral aroma. Bitter citrus flavor jumps to the front, but finishes with a smooth spicy caramel malt.

Pours a dark amber with a thick, rocky, off-white head. The aroma is golden raisins, cookie dough, candi sugar and caramel. The flavor is very fruity with plums and bananas, cola, caramel and candi sugar. The mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation.
