11.2 oz. bottle, purchased in Kansas City. Poured cloudy/hazy golden, foamy off white head. Aroma of bread, malts, fruity and coriander. Taste was less sweet than expected, creamy.

Hazy yellow ochre, thin white head. Mildly sweet, flowery notes, fruits, fresh, belgian yeast, herbs and bit spices. Light body, crisp, lively carbonation, mild sourness, long finish. Nice, fresh, light, spring-like, lively and nuanced.

33 cl bottle served in tulip. Pours hazy orange with a nice head with decent retention, eventually turning into nice lacing. Sweet aroma of spices, fruits and yeast. The taste is balanced, mostly yeast, but also fruits and spices. Pretty nice.-

Evilman (53) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUN 22, 2016
Everything you can expect from a good Abbey beer. Strong taste, generous but not agressive, very pleasant aftertaste that lasts in mouth for a classic beer overall. Maybe not very original or surprising, but definitely a great choice for any occasion. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Nez fruité, banane, bois. Bien fait, assez plein. Manque un peu de développement. Bonne biere. Finale plutôt courte. Pas mal fait.

hauxe (310) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2016
Pours orange from the bottle. Lots of evident carbonation and swimming sediment. The crown subsides to gentle creamy lacing that lasts for the duration. Aroma is lightly floral with hints of pineapple, but on the whole subdued. Taste is a rich blend of pear, clove and pepper set over a yeasty background. Overall remains quite dry with just a touch of sugar on the tongue after the swill. Full bodied with a gentle alcohol warmth at the finish. Nice aperitif. Would also work well as a sparkling wine substitute for special occassions. Excellent.

330 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy golden with a white head. Mild aroma of breadish malt and some yeast. Medium to full body with soft to lively carbonation. The taste is moderately sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Aromas of stone fruits and dried fruits.

bonev (92) - POLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Piwo metne w kolorze brzoskwiniowym z obfita jasna piana ktora jednak bardz szybko sie redukuje. W aromacie pieprz i inne przyprawy. W smaku slodko i troche drozdzowo. Wysycenie na poziomie srednim z ledwo zaznaczona goryczka. Po ogrzaniu czuc lekkie nuty alkoholowe.

Aroma: sweet, fruity, spicy, dusty. Taste: sweet fruits with some soicy bitterness. Very light body. Flavour: pepper, ripe apricotes. Good but not too complex.
