Dayton, OH AleFest:This beer formed a small sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles.The body was cloudy with lively carbonation observed.The hue of this beer was straw yellow and its nose was that of clove, spices and fruits.The flavor was bitter from start to finish and it had a lingering effect.This beer had a smooth mouthfeel and it was light in body.There was a fair amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 This brew poured a small head of fine white mostly diminishing bubbles that left a good lacing and a hazy yellow colored softly carbonated body behind. It had a fruity floral aroma and a smooth bubbly mouthfeel. Its flavor was mild, light and very well hidden. It was hard to pinpoint it. Fruity is anything was all that came to mind.

Pale yellow body topped with thick clouds of head that cling to the glass like the top of a lemon merangue pie. Soft and full of lemon citrus; a dash of hops at the end. This is really easy to drink - would be a great Belgian Lawn Mowin' beer!

Very nice meringue head on top of a banana yellow body. I sure like this style: the chuggable Belgian Abbey Single. There is noticeable alcohol in the aroma and flavor which cut the spicy coriander and pils malt sweetness rather nicely, and works well with the light hops. A real pleasure to drink. The price, however, dampens the pleasure a bit.

The aroma is sweet, slightly fruity and slightly wheaty. The color is a clear yellow with a beutiful head. The flavor is very fruity with wheat and lemon notes. It is soft, a little acidic and ending on a dry bitterness. It has a good palate.
