Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Cloudy yellow, big foamy head. Bready, yeasty aroma. Fruity, a bit musty, and some crispness. Nicely understated, and surprisingly drinkable.

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with a medium head. Sweet fruity aroma with a yeasty note. Malty and quite sweet flavor with a yeasty and light spicy finish, but it becomes very watery.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB nov 07). Some alc noticeable amongst the fruity slightly spicy nose. Moderately sweet, body slightly thin compared to this and a short empty finish.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, big white head. Wheat, yeast, malts and fruits in aroma. Flavour is the same in a very wellbalanced and pleasant mix. Like a good little brother to the triple.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2006
Hazy light straw/yellow body with a good size, white head. Soft spice on the nose. Very light sweet malt taste, some lemon, light to medium body and a touch of yeast.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2006
Hazy blonde ale with a thick white head. Gushed out of bottle. Lemony malt aroma, with light orange notes. In mouth, a lightly sweet malt, with lemony charater, light sour notes, a bit overcarbonated (explains the gushing?), and herbal overtones. Medium bodied. Bieropholie bottle, BB 12/03/05

SSSteve (3834) - - JUN 18, 2006
clear gold under a large foamy head. mild sour citrus and malt aroma. smooth watery palate. sweet candy and citrus flavor. some yeast in there too. very light.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2006
Hazy tan-blonde colour. Light spices with marshmallow malts, dried herbs and the like. Fairly light body and flavour with dried flowers, dusty yeast notes, creamy sweet pale malts and a splash of late lactic tartness. Well-made but ultimately a bit simple. (As Westy Blonde proves, a light abbey need not be simple).

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Bottle... Lightly hazy, yellow ale with a large, fizzy, white head. Grainy, fruity aroma. Notes of mash, banana and delicate spice. Mildly sweet, grainy flavor with sips of honey, straw and lemon. Tangy, but not tart. Barely medium-bodied and on the verge of being creamy with spritzy carbonation. Sweet, grassy finish. Very subtle in all aspects. Spendy brew at close to $10 per bottle. Not much bang for your buck... unless you are really into ’almost.’

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
Very fizzy clear straw colored with a white head that stayed around for a while. Lots of sediment on the bottom. It’s spicy and a bit on the dry side.
