3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had great retention and superb sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty sweet Belgian yeast with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), bubblegum and coriander.
The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a touch of apple and a hint of banana early on, with a nice fruity ester creeping in along with a bold yeasty presence and just a bit of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time proceeding the swallow with the fruity yeast taste lingering for a little while, before fading away entirely.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and a strong lively carbonation.
Overall a light flavorful Abbey Ale with a great drinkability, which could be dangerous considering the somewhat higher ABV...

Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.
