On the basis of ancestral recipes, this relatively light blonde, remains faithful to the principles of the monks who populated the old abbey of Belgian. It refreshes intelligently, and will charm the thirst in hot weather.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2005
Murky golden brown with a bubbly head that disappears relatively quickly as there isn’t much carbonation to refuel it. Floral aroma that is very high in wheat characteristics, with some banana/bugglegum notes, and detectable alcohol. There’s some acidity and astringent sourness, which leaves me tthinking it may be a dodgy bottle. Some bitterness at the end, but all of it isn’t balanced at all. Surprisingly thin and metallic palate, with sharp sensations that gives the beer a scattered appearance.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2005
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Pale golden. Sour pale/wheat malt dominates aroma, then there is fruit and spices, almost menthol. Flavour is rich fruity, pale malty and has notes of anise. This is a very pleasant and tasty brew. Light bodied.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2006 Cloudy golden colour with a medium white head. Yeasty aroma with a bit of vinegar. Plenty of background sweetness and sour fruit in the taste, but a welcome dryness as well. Just a bit too much carbonation, but I enjoyed this.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) He’s back!!! The cute, little,fat, beer-drinking monk on the St. Idesbald labels. Golden, rather light in body, sweetish, pleasant and very easy to drink. The kind of beer that wouldn’t offend even the typical pils-drinker. Only here you get something a lot more interesting. 070996

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 22, 2005
Coriander and candy nose. Huge head with poor retention. Over spiced with little depth otherwise. Sweet and honeyed character with a candy sugar finish.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2005
(Bottled) Hay orange-yellow color with a medium, tight and lacy head. Mild, yeasty and perfumy aroma. Fruity (oranges), acidic flavor with a mildly bitter finish and somewhat noticeable alcohol. Medium-bodied with a bit hard carbonation. Still quite balanced. A refreshing, basic blonde with no serious flaws.
