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.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 bottle....appearance: orange-brown hue with a thick/fluffy white head. very much resembled an ipa in nature.....aroma: crisp, hoppy citrus nose.....taste: light medium body, somewhat like a lighter belgian ale with a nice citrus bitterness. some wheat qualities come into play as well.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Golden-hazy pour with a nice white head. Aroma is grainy and yeasty with a nice bit of citrus. Flavor has a bready, yeasty mix to it with some orange and spice. Nice brew, but way too average to be worth "Lost Abbey" prices. Ill take these average brews if it means Tomme makes such great brews.......

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle: Hazy, honey-ish golden pour with a frothy white head. The nose is Belgian yeasts, plastic-y phenolic notes, and citruc spices; slightly herbal. Has lively carbonation on the medium body. Spicy citruses dominate. Lots of orange type fruits, herbal undertones, with a spicy (white pepper) character. The finish is long spicy (peppery). Not very complex, but somewhat well made.

Sammy (11498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Lovely pale yellow with lots of foam, normal Belgian yeasty aroma. Leaf dry hoppiness that works with the yeast, and works up in the finish a fruity and grassy climax. Well done "blonde". Finished the bomber myself at lunch, I was tempted by the relatively lower ABV. It was a good pale Belgian.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Re-rate, 10/07, bottle: A bit too malty/sticky for a Belgian Ale, this thing approached a saison, although a decent and competent saison. Plenty of hoppy dryness in the finish, light spicing, but the caramel and fruity malt profile was actually a little bit sticky, too thick/bodied for a great Belgian ale, although enjoyable, nonetheless. Original numbers stand. Original Rating: KSBF07, special little keg. Orangey-amber color, nice initial head. Aroma was floral hops, wheaty grainy malt base. The flavor was firm floral hops, fruity notes, with a citrusey-wheaty slight sourness. Earthy yeasty finish, body is hearty, somewhat crisp. Looking forward to the 750 in my cellar, although this was surely no Orval, not nearly as complex.

ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Very clear pour, color is pale orange and very clean, no haze at all. Aroma is light and floral with a touch of citrus. Flavor is a very smooth with a really clean aftertaste of green apple/honey/wheat/malt. Low in alcohol and very easy on the tongue.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle. Clear, brite, pale copper color with a large white head. Somewhat sweet malt aroma with notes of spice and grass. Dry and light on the palate. Griny malt flavors with some apple and wheat or straw notes. Much bigger hop bitterness than I expected. Very dry finish.
