Pours a dark orangey color. Sweet, spicy aroma, nice lacing. Nothing amazingly great. But not a bad beer.

Bottle. Poured out with a nice clear, golden color with good head. Had a banana spice aroma. Based on the smell, I was expecting a better tasting beer. It wasnt terrible, just not what I was expecting from the aroma. Overall, I could drink this beer, but I wouldnt go out of my way to get it.

I first tried this beer in Brussels Belgium and then came back to the states and couldnt find it. About 8 months later a small independant supermarket near me (Acquistipaces) started stocking it in bottles and a short time later a local pub (Columbia Street Tap Room) started carrying it on draft. It has one of the prettiest blonde colors Ive ever seen. Medium yellow with the slightest hint of red. Almost a "strawberry blonde" color. On first sip, the taste is downright startling. The first sip made me blink. Not in a negative way, but with surprise. Its got a powerfull buttered-toast-with-some-exotic-fruit-jelly-on-it sort of taste that I wasnt expecting. But... a few sips later and Im saying, "Damn! Its good though!" The mouth feel is thick and creamy. The aftertaste is carmel/chocolate, almost like when youve recently finished a candy bar. A really, really uniqe tasting brew, and very good!

Bottle. Pours perfectly clear gold, very filtered. Short fizzy white head. Lively carbonation from the center of the chalice. Smell is biscuits and yeast with some fruity/vinous tones. Taste is harsh at first almost metallic. After allowing to warm to almost room temp it acquires an almost buttery yeasty flavor that isnt disagreeable but isnt especially good either. Mouth feel is medium full and lively. Not terrible but I expect more out of a Belgian.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Honey golden color, filtered. Deliciously sweet and creamy, with nice yeast character. Lovely honey-floral aroma. Light candi sugar flavors come through. Moderate alcohol isnt overwhelming but certainly makes itself known. A great standard Belgian beer.

Poobah (396) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Sweet floral aroma. Golden color with great head initially that fades quickly. Malty intro that transitions smoothly with light carbonation into a clover honey aftertaste. The alcohol reveals itself early on but is not a detriment. My wife actually likes this beer and I do too. Now, if I can only find the Brune version...

ILduce (270) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle in namesake chalice: Golden-amber under a nice head; nice lacing. Fruity aroma with good strong hops...some almonds. Tastes slightly bitter with well-rounded alcoholic feel. Malty with traces of sour-apple. Flavourfully warming on the palate...what abbey ale is a ll about.

I had this beer poured into a trappist glass in Brussels. It had a clear, darker gold color with a medium-sized, foamy white head that featured average to good retention. The aroma was sweet grapes and some malt, with a bit of citrus hops. It tasted more sour than I expected, but still had some sweetness too, and just a touch of bitterness. A wet, fuller body with tingly, ample carbonation. A very solid beer.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Nutty, doughy, and banana nose. Rich gold in color, crystal clear. Great complexity and balance, very enjoyable. A Belgian session beer.

Great Belgian from a nice Abbey. Pours a beautiful golden color, nice head formation from a bottle. Good aroma and a wonderful mouth-feel. All the good things about a Belgian in a nice blond beer.
