Comparada con sus dos hermanas defrauda, igual debería tomarla un día ella sola únicamente. De todas formas, estaba rica.

Trappistenflasche (@Rudat, Oespel, 0.33l 13.33€!): Golden, cloudy, floaties visible, small & stable creamy head; moderate fruity and yeasty nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, creamy MF; lingering bitter and fruity finish, some residual malty sweetness detectable. Surely good, but totally overrated…

29/04/2016 @home - 33cl bottle bought @ In De Vrede. Hazy blond with creamy white head. Nose is grains, fruits a bit floral. Taste is sweet fruits, bitter fruits, some spices. Wow, didnt expect to like this that mu h. One of the loveliest blondes I ever drank!

TtV (365) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow with a sturdy bright white head. Aroma of malts, sugar, peaches. Fresh bitter taste with an even more bitter aftertaste. Dry for a blond beer but still very good.

emartell (328) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - APR 28, 2016
Buena cerveza, fácil de tomar y muy fresca. Buenas notas a lupulo herbal, algo amarga pero con buen equilibrio. En lo personal me sorprendió la intensidad de notas especiadas, principalmente canela y clavo.

Z butelki w barze przy klasztorze St. Sixtus. Bardzo klasyczny, bezbłędny i smaczny blond.

Nice blond beer, very bitter and dry finish. Nice yeast aroma. But honestly, more legendary than tasty. Nothing compared to the marvelous XII from the same abbey

Ladna biala piana, zolta metna piana. W aromacie bardzo delikatne estry, fenole i kwiaty. W smaku wszystko, co dobry sesyjny blond powinien miec. Lekko drozdzowe w odczuciu. Srednio nasycone.

Bottle bought at Schaliënhuis Temse. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Strong bitter flavour, hops, very malty and grainy... Light fruity touch.
