Slight yeast and straw. Does now smell like a Belgian strain. Not a good sign. Very light, clear orangish-copper color. Taste has a bit of corn, and yeast..might be a belgian strain, but if so it is very faint. Not as strong as even the usual session Belgian ales. Very watery, For this clear of a beer, not seeing bubbles rise. Besides the brief yeast upfront, and the mouthfeel at the end, would never guess this was a beer - let alone a Belgian style ale. Drinkable. Will not buy again. Might be the worst Belgian ale I have had due to lack of flavor, complexity, and anything that makes this style enjoyable.

Bottle, poured on the back patio to relax and soak up the 100* heat. Good color, dark golden and a small sandy head. Noticeably Belgian yeast in the nose, but not overwhelmingly so. Floral and slightly dirty, there is nice grassy and floral note. Really hit the mark on what I was hoping for; a sessionable golden ale with a light bit of Belgian yeast.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is pale yellow with a quick white head. The nose is toast, bread, mild sugar, mild spice, and grass. The mouthfeel is light. Toasted sweetness to begin with a slightly bitter and spicy finish. Easy to drink

Bottle @ home, picked up at Boulder Liquor Mart. Golden orange appearance with a tan head. Mild black pepper, light banana, lemon, light cracker nose. Moderate high sweetness. Quite a bit of spice. A little twangy. Some orange, light banana, hint of clove. Low bitterness. Fine.

Bottle from Brewers Haven. Definite Belgian funk going on, musty nose. Lightly hazy golden body with creamy head, some decent streaky lacing. Taste brings the yeast full on, some malt, very bready. Decent Belgian.

Interesting beer made by the monks. Pretty dark and pretty malty. This is a good Belgium beer.
