3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle, at Ebenezer’s (Lovell, ME). I’ve wanted to try this for a while; I was excited to see it on the menu, and even more excited when they told me it was in stock. Poured yellow-golden, capped with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of wheat, grass, soap, mild hops, and lemongrass. Flavor is similar, with grass, wheat, bread, apples, and mild hop crispness. Long wheaty finish, accented by lingering floral hops.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a creamy one finger white head. Aroma is a lot of grassy hops, with a hint of fruity sweetness, banana. Taste is supremely balanced, with a light biscuity malt note sitting underneath grassy hop flavor coming out early and sticking around through the clean, refreshing finish. Creamy, crisp carbonation, seems to expand in your mouth. Supremely light and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, fresh, grassy nose with pears and green apples. Malty, grassy taste with fruity hints of apples. Spicy, almost metallic bitterness in a dry finish. Superbly balanced (even more so than the other Westmalle beers). Rather thin body, fairly dry. Very nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thx to fonefan. It pours a golden-yellowish body, some microfloaties, topped by a dense, white head. Rather hoppy aroma with a good fruityness, on a grainy, pale-malty background. Surprisingly hoppy and flavorful for a small trappist beer. Fruity, piney and citrusy, and quite bitter. Full to medium, rather dry mouthfeel. Long, bitter and hoppy finish. A really good one, especially considering it being one of the small trappists, still I’m having difficulties giving it a score higher than the others. Rerate wanted. (080412)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 33cl. Pours a cloudy blond coloured brew with a huge white head. Very fresh, citrus, mango, ananas and lemongrass nose. Taste first grassy like japanese green tea, light body and texture, dry hoppy but seductive finish. Belgian yeast taste, amazing spring water, an impressive composition. A masterpiece.
