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.

Courtesy of Fonefan. Slightly hazy and light golden with a nice head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of fruit, yeast, spice and malt. The flavour is refreshing and hoppy with notes of citrus, spice, mostly coriander and malt. It’s light, but very charming and refreshing.
