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.

Papsoe (25083) - 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

Bottled@SBWF2007. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Spicy, malty, hoppy and yeasty aroma with quite much the same kicking in in the flavour. Not very pleasant.

harrisoni (14113) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy gold, lasting white head. It’s an ok blond, bit like a mix of a blond and a tripel. Rather a mature likeable bond. Yep, fine, bit more syrupy than some. Maybe could do with a bit more hop.
