COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. Its always been a simple life the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldnt sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we werent sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

Cimbasso (840) - - JAN 17, 2016
Sampled on draught. Clear orange gold with a foaming white head. Aromas of pear drops and a taste of candy, pear drops and Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Some bitterness to offset the sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Interesting, but not a classic. Might appeal to lovers of bubblegum.

haukur (1848) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 14, 2015
Hazy holden with a firm head. Aroma is esters, slight pepper, slight citrus, distinct dupont smell. Estery palate, grassy but overpowered by esters. My least favorite from this great brewery.

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 25, 2015
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Served in Tulip. Pours golden-orange with white head. Both aroma and taste are candy, yeast, cereals banana and some hops. Very lemony on the palate, similar to a Saison beer. Mouthfeel is medium with decent carbonation. Nothing incredible, regular Belgian stuff is a much better option than this.
