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.

Dirty orange and quite cloudy. Nose is a little abrupt with some strong spice and corriander notes. More of the spice in the mouth with some noticable bitterness and sour notes. Does feel a little clumsy to be honest and some overt alcohol heat doesn’t help. Interestingly I picked this up for $3.75 at a competitor which gives me some confidence I can sell for close to $3.25, so in the Oz market good value for the style.

Fules (658) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2016
Monumentális, tartós fehér hab. Enyhén homályos borostyán szín. Intenzív, malátás, korianderes illat. Szénsavas, kissé édes, tipikus apátsági stílusú sör. Talán van benne egy kis koriander és egy kicsit élesztős. Utóíze enyhén kesernyés és korianderes. Közepesen testes, jól csúszó, finom sör.

Cerveza de color dorado, con una espuma agradable y firme. El aroma es complejo en nariz, con notas de ginebra, lima, cilantro y lúpulo. El sabor es amargo, fresco, ligeramente redondo, picante y equilibrado. El regusto es suave y ligeramente amargo.

jamaty (1777) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 11, 2016
Dorada bastante clara, de espuma abundante y duradera. Aroma dulce, bizcocho y levadura belga. En boca gas elevado, quizás excesivo. Sabor equilibrado, de base acaramelada y contrapunto frutal. Levadura presente y cierto punto acido.

Vinx (106) - ITALY - FEB 5, 2016
Strong aroma of coriander, orange peel, citrus, then stone fruit and a little honey from the malt. It really reminds a blanche. Pale golden color with a very significant long-lasting foam. Bitter and well attenuated. High carbonation, light-bodied. Not the best belgian ever tasted but a decent one.

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Craft Room, Zagreb. Golden-amber body with a tiny white head. Honeyish flowery aroma, yeasty, strong and fruity, grapey. Honey, grapes, thin sweetish, far from cloying, perfumey, simple but interesting. OK Belgian ale.
