Cloudy yellow, big foamy head. Bready, yeasty aroma. Fruity, a bit musty, and some crispness. Nicely understated, and surprisingly drinkable.

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.

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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.’

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
