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.

Draught served at 48˚ Appearance is clear golden with a large head that settles slowly and leaves solid lacing. Smell is sweat socks (in a good way), black pepper and paprika. Taste is orange and malt with a background of coriander and a bitter finish, very well-balanced and complex. An excellent example of an abbey style blonde ale.

Best beer of the tasting by a long shot, and my best blond iv ever had, including woman. Aroma was super peachy, pineapple sweet malts and raisins, very very nice. Taste is similar fruityness, not so sweet as easy drinking, really peachy. An excellent beer in every way.

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.

Grzesiek79 (3222) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Dobre ale nie rewelacyjne. Wyglad pomaranczowy piwa z wielka czapa trwalej piany. Mocne sykniecie spod kapsla podczas otwierania, zwiastuje wysokie nagazowanie. Piwo jest wspaniale aromatyczne, morela i brzoskwinia w tle. Owocowo-biszkoptyowy smak lekko slodki nie nachalny i wyrazisty. Malo alkoholu przy belgijskim piwie w tym przypadku jest uzasadnione.

Hazy orange and gold in appearance. Aromas are are sweet oranges and spices with yeast and floral hops - good. Flavours are sweetened oranges and spices with yeast and a nice peppery feel on the tongue. Fairly dry on the finish. This is delicate in many ways but still quite complex.
