3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a transparent gold with a foamy white head and tight, small bubbles reflecting plenty of carbonation. Nose is mild but there is some Belgian candy, yeast, bananas, some malt, and some perfume. Flavor is similar, a little sour, malt, yeasty with some sweetness. A little chalky on the palate. Very drinkable, but a little bland.

11.2 oz bottle poured in tulip glass. Nice carbonation, sudsy foam head-thin and fizzy from start to finnish. Orange tinge with a thin pallet. Crisp and slight citrus notes with a light hop presence. Had a bit of a nut-grain quality but not really standing out, even with the yeast from the bottom. Dry-semi sweet finish.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellowish. Smells of classic abbey yeast. Taste is somewhat subdued but smooth. Aftertaste is subtle and straightforward. A nice example of Belgian Blonde.
