COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s 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. It’s 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 wouldn’t 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 weren’t 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.

Dry and yeasty with an axtra does of hops, this reminds me of an extra hoppy saison.

Bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is a little like a czech pilsner with some belgian yeast and american citrus / pine hops. The flavor is the same, and slightly herbal. For me, this blend of flavors doesn’t work.

Bottle. Thanks to my Santa for sending me this one because I had one bottle earlier in the year that was skunked and wanted to try this again. Poured a nice golden body with thin head. Aroma is light yeast, earthy. Flavor is light spices, earthy and very dry. A good warm weather beer.

50. Pours lightly hazy bright gold with a fluffy white head. Light body. Sweet fruit, citrus and bread aroma backed by herbal hops. Some nutty malt flavor comes through, along with citrus in the taste. Rather dry and lightly spicy finish. The pine bitterness builds as I sip.

mjg74 (3199) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Bottle from South Bay. Aroma is a little sour and dusty with some spiced dry peppery hop character. Fairly dry and grainy up front. A little Belgian yeast and dry hoppiness. Pretty full flavored yet subtle Belgian Ale.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle, pours a clear golden color into the tulip with an inch of fluffy white head. Scents of barley, hops and grains. A yeasty flavor with some hints of grains, spices and pepper. A nice Belgian Ale, that could use a little more in the way of complexity.

750, capped and corked.

Pours gold with a beautiful fluffy white head. Nice belgian-style yeast aroma: oranges and pepper, crisp and clear. Marvelous dry flavor, plenty of citrus and grass, lovely peppery yeast tones. Somewhat straight-forward but Incredibly drinkable. Great beer.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2007
750 from Bmartin08. Cloudy orange color with large white billowing head. Aroma is a lot of citrus, yeast, spice, medium sweetness, orange, very nice and light. Flavor is earthy, spice, oaky, pretty dry, nice pine hops, almost winey. Medium body and creamy, but hotly carbonated. Excelent, I think the flavor could be a little more refined, but other than that, I like it.

3.7
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the brewery. A goden amber pur with a gooey tight lace. An aorma that remindes me somewhat of corn and hops. A flavor that cries out earthiness and adjuncts but hops kick ass as well. A very good lingering bitter. Carbonation is very good mouthfeel is solid but just a tiny bit thin. Oveall good beer a very pleasant drinker.

bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
750 bottle from the Patron Saints club. Glad I joined this club-better than the golf club!! Pours bright gold with a small white, loose head.. Very carbonated. Nose of funk, biere de garde, barnyard, spices, alcohol. Sweet. Taste is the nose, barnyard, wet blanket, tons of spices, pungency, earthiness. Body is soft, fluffy, carbonated but it really smooths out as it warms up. NIce saison style beer. Good job guys.
