Sometimes hard to get, even in Belgium. In 2004 they just stop brewing it for almost a year. Superb blond ale, fresh taste.

No label, just the green cap says it all. A unique and masterly crafted beer. Yeast and malt that is consistent in a medium grainy but smooth mouthfeel. If only I could have this all night. Very fresh

Poured nice golden yellow with a dense white head...smell is ultimately unimpressive...yeast, hay, grain, hints of cirtrus and some clove...taste is sweet malts with a nice doughy quality turning a touch bitter toward the finish...very good but seems a little overrated...

A wonderful beer to begin the daybeautiful big pillowy head with nice gas release.noste of jasmine flower and grassy hop scombine with a slightly honeyed and dry malt character. Had thisoriginally at the cafe "in de vrede" across from the monastery. My first ever religious experience.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light looking Belgian beer with a light fermented fruity aroma and a relatively dry flavour that is fairly strong and sustained in its finish. Overall quite a disappointing beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy orange beer with a large head. Aromas of citrus, yeast and spices. Flavours of bitter dry hops are noted too. The aftertaste gives a hoppy bitterness that keeps on going. The fathers know how to brew big stuff. Somewhat discouraging how they handle there distribution strategie...
