330 ml bottle from Colruyt, Antwerp. Served in a tulip glass. Coriander, cereal and fruit notes. Sweet and yeasty, but in some way dull. No bitterness. Nice foam head. High carbonation. Dark golden colour like a Pils. Good Blond, but my favourite.

A wonderful Abbey Ale. Pours from the bottle clear golden with a large thin white head. Aroma and taste is fruity, yeasty, spices, some banana. Taste is nicely sweet. Medium full mouthfeel, with lots of carbonation. Lightly hopped. Oh, and there’s a gnome on the label. Fine beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dorada profunda de tonalidad naranja casi ambarina, espuma generosa de algo mas de un dedo de grosor. Aroma a pan, levadura, fenólica a clavo y notas especiadas a cilantro, algo de cítricos. En boca de cuerpo medio-bajo y un carbónico que se hace sentir acentuando los amargos. De entrada ligeramente dulce con un final seco y amargo moderado. Bastante especiada, alcohol bien integrado.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a cloudy dark orange with creamy white head that stayed for years. Aroma mild, soft bread malt, doughy, and faint herbs (not sure what). Flavour eludes at first sip; an assault of warming alcohol. Complex; seems to have a bit of everything hiding behind the booze. Quite bready with a mix of light sweetness, medium bitterness, and light sourness, mixed with a good helping of cloves and spice. Full bodied and thick textured, with dense soft carbonation, and a long bitter-alcohol finish - beautiful palate. Overall, a damn fine brew and I will be keeping it in mind for special occasions, but only those I will not be driving a car afterward. **Wife tasted it and said, "gah, tastes like beer wine". Bless her.

Not particularly keen on the aroma, notes of dough, spices and citrus. Semi-clouded with a miniature head. Tastes much better than it smells - fruity, spicy, lovely, with a great finish. Brilliant!

It pours whit dark golden colour and creamy head; the fruity aroma is strongly present in the taste, which is not so alcoholic.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Virkelig lækker øl. Tilpas med bitterhed og sødme. Ikke for kraftig smag af alkohol. Kedeligt udseende.
