2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from local Sake Marche. Lots of yeast in the aroma. also slightly lemony. Cloudy dull green-tinged yellow with a big puffy head and very thick lacing. Sharp yeasty and sourish initial; mid palate goes tangy with citrus; finish is a little bitter. Medium body. A bit too heavy on the yeast -- and not terribly pleasant. Like a bitter fizzy fruit soda.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Big vast, a little bit creamy white head on top of a yellow / golden colored beer. Smell some lemon or citrus, slightly sweet and orange peel. Taste citrus/lemon-fruityness, sweetness and slightly bitter. Suitable carbonation, low to medium body. Easy to drink, refreshing blond. Better than expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma: Dusty wheat, yeast, lemon rind, light spiciness, faint malt and possibly candy sugar
Palate: Creamy, smooth mouth feel
Flavor: Wheat, understated pear and lemon chiffon. Finishes with more wheat, light malt and yeast.
Comments: Easy drinking. A "safe" but good intro to Abbey Ales. Good balance. Though not intense, powerful nor complex, it has a persistent white head and a good mouth feel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
6 Pleasant soft bready aroma.
4 Hazy blond, large head. Glad it survived the brief freeze while my fridge was set to max.
7 Simple, but very tasty bready body. Yeasty and lemony retronasals.
4 Super smooth palate, but with nice carbonation. Finish is bready, but packs a wicked bitter tingle.
14 Bready and bitey, pretty much bang on for a Belgian blond.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
13/07/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 3/5/13 (2011-323)
Cloudy yellow to light beige beer, off-white creamy head, stable and bit adhesive. Aroma: grapefruit, lemon zest, dish washing soap, reminds a bit of a Hoegaarden witbier. MF: too much carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of citrus, almost artificial lemony flavour. Not really bad, but somewhat one dimensional. Aftertaste: bit watery, more citrus and sour hops. Weird they call this a blond abbey beer.
