4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours bright yet hazy yellow in colour with a big, foamy head and loads of sediment. Taste is surprisingly simple and refreshing. Nice tart, crisp and mildly citric taste...this would be my session beer if I lived near the abbey, and, unlike most beer it’s great with food.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 Pours a hazy "electric" yellow color, some sediment on the bottom, and a small but lingering white head on top. Aroma is bannanas and spices. Flavor is very tart, banannas, cloves and other spices round out the flavor of this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy yellow/orange with a large head of foam. Aromas are citrus fruit, yeast, spices, peppery, fresh hops - good. Flavours are grain with bags of floral, bitter, dry hops. Grassy and aromatic in its hopping. Has a grapefruit pith bitterness on the finish that lasts....and lasts. Its a simple beer made very well. Incredibly addictive.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow/light orange color, thick head with millions of small bubbles in it. Peppery, fruity and yeasty aroma. Spicy, dry and somehow metallic flavor with a crisp bite. Dry, long lasting finish. Medium bodied. Although I’m not a big fan of Blonds (as far as beer is concerned) I was expecting more from this. Slightly disappointing after 8 & 12.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours effervescent and golden with a fizzy off-white head. Smells of a belgian wit - pear, grapes, and spices. Taste is of white grapes with a hint of spice. Very dry, with a long bitter finish. Refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 Light yellow cloudy color, big white lasting head. Spicy, peppery aroma, some citrus comes up too with mild yeast, nice aroma. Medium to full bodied. Strong flavor:starts with spices and fruity tones, ends with strong dryness, bitterness, pepper, hops and yeast. Excellent bite in the end coming also from carbonation. Lasting aftertaste, yeast dominates it with hops too. Excellent blonde!
