Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy orange with a white one inch head. Aroma is malt, some grass, citrus and spices. Taste follows, medium body, a minor lingering bitterness. Was expecting more contribution from the yeast being named "monastery beer".
Bottle. The colour is slightly hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of hay, grass, apricot, spices and some Belgian yeast. Sweet flavour of apricot, weeds, wood and grassy hops. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A malty, sweet and decent ale. Nonshaugen (622) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017
33 cl, bottle conditioned, BB May 4th 2018. Hazy, golden amber, thin white head, low carbonation, minimal amount of yeast sediments. Aromas of light malts and brown bread crusts. Mouthfeel is medium with a sharp bitterness, dry and lemony at the end. Flavours of sharp, fresh and citric bitter hops, blended with a nice maltyness. A good, hoppy, well balanced Blonde.

Øllen er abrikosfarvet med en hvid skumkrone, der hurtigt reduceres. Duften er malt honning og citrus, medens smagen er honning, rugbrød og gær. jobe977 (104) - Töreboda, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget (5%). Color is amber and hazy. Nice crown. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is a bit sour and lemon. Decent. Tezminator (257) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2017
Aroma: not much, some doughy and fruity tones. Taste: orange, bread, faint grass and pine. Hints of caramel. Pretty nice and balanced. Good stuff.
NORSAND (107) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - APR 15, 2017
Golden colour with short lived white head.
Nose: Light malt sweetness. Some hops with a whiff of pine in the distant background.
Taste: The arrival is relatively rich in carbonation, then some light and modest malt sweetness. The aftertaste is "correct" with a slight bitterness.
Most of all reminds me of a dry pilsner. Absolutely drinkable but not very exiting.

Bottle from systembolaget. Very disappointing. Metallic smell, odd taste, pretty nasty and confirms containing worries about gotlands! Maits (508) - ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2017
Little hazy golden beer with some white head. Aroma yeast and sweet fruits. Taste is balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Medium body. Hoppy finish. Beerhunter111 (21245) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2017
33cl bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden colour with a mid-sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of dry yeasty fruits, mild hops. Taste of mild fruity hops, yeast, stone fruits, okay! bartlebier (4010) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2017
33cl bb03/2017 Maruhn, inter festas. - A very odd blend of Ename-style "single" Belgian ale, British Golden Ale and Swedish cover of a German pilsner... - Honeydry malts rounded as if polished, refined with smooth grassy hops. Doughy biscuit in body. Little yeast profile in aroma or flavour, not necessarily a bad thing for Belgian drinkers overdosed on sawy esters and phenols.
