KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with a small particles of yeast sediment floating throughout with an average size white frothy head and had excellent lacing. The aroma had a strong scent of a flowery hops, light grainy malts and a mild soapy yeast odor with notes of citrus. It tasted moderatley bitter and slightly acidic at first then mellowed into a smooth bitter yeasty flavor with notes of citrus that lingered on the palate for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall an outstanding Abbey ale.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2014
Abbey blonde since 1996 and brewed on the premises of a former monastery, albeit not by monks. Hazy light blonde beer with medium thick, moussy, snow white head; estery, fruity, malt sweetness, yeasty with some soft spiciness, medium strong carbonation, mild herbal hop bitterishness in the finish. Very drinkable, even quenching, but not outstanding.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas of bananas, yeast, weird popcorn notes. Taste has a lemony sweetness, bit one-dimensional and over-carbonated.

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent, Belgium. Hazy gold with white head. The estery, bubblegum notes come out in the aroma, but are a little underplayed in the drinking. There is a sweetness to the beer, candy-floss notes with Pear drops and yeast. Sweet cereal in the finish. It’s ok but little more.

didierlewallon (141) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
Tiene un color rubio ligeramente fangoso y una espuma blanca. Posee un aroma perfumado y houblonné. Tiene un gusto cremoso y distinguimos notas de limón. No deseca la boca y desarrolla un carácter agradable y amargo en conclusión. Una frescura de salida la hará más agradable. Guardará un abrigo ligero blanco a lo largo de la degustación.
