4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Floral, yeast, bread, citrus, lemon peel, notes of candy sugar and coriander-like spice.
Flavor: Yeast, bread, caramel, followed by lemon, more bread and dried flowers (chamomile) on the mid-palate. These flavors carry on into the finish and the yeasty quality reappears.
Palate: Soft and smooth; the carbonation seems, paradoxically, to explode on the tongue, adding a unique dimension the palate.
Comment: Great complexity. Of the few 1000 or so beers I’ve tried, this is my new favorite. Very few can top this. Tasted on 2 different days with consistent notes. When allowed to warm a bit, pear-like fruit comes through on the mid-palate.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy straw golden with a thick, tall rocky buoyant eggshell head that lasts forever. Nose involves light banana notes, spice, big yeasty doug, lemony citrus, a touch of cellar must. Fairly sweet, some bitterness, and a little tartness in there. Rich and creamy, high carb, champagne-like, not too heavy bodied at all, with a long, spicy finish. Killer brew, totally appropriate to toast for special occasions, pair with a variety of foods, or just drink and feel like a million dollars. Loved it.

Light golden color, little cloudy with nice head. Aroma of grains and yeast. Taste is much better, firstly sweet & spicy with citrus background. After that appears some yeastness. Long sweet & spicy finish. Full body, high carbonation. Very good abbey ale, but not as good as Orval.
