COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Posh packaged 33cl bottle (gold foil on top, orange front label), best before June 2011, poured into a íCorsendonkí badged stemmed tulip glass in Aug 2010. The beer was a dull orange colour and full of floating sediment, Iíd stored this beer for over a year (upright and in the dark) and moved it for chilling the day before opening, yet it still came out of the botle like a torrent bringing all the sediment with it. The head was a balloning white crest, but the sediment just refused to settle in the glass. Yeast and grainy smell, strong and heady. The flavours were of yeast, mixed spices and mild hops, no real malt presence evident to me. OK, but middle of the road stuff compared to a lot of Belgian Blondes. The sediment leaving the bottle and not calming down any didnít help the scores given.

Sevenlee (1271) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2011
Pours a cloudy orange with visual sediment and a tall frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, some peach when first poured, yeast and spices. Taste is also fruity with some yeast leading to a dry spicy and lightly alcoholic finish. Pretty decent.
