Cheap abbaye beer bought from Lidl supermarket. Little 25 cl. bottle. Not sure this is authentic beer brewed and sold for the benifit of monks' works, though.
Smells very much like a macro pilsner/lager, like Heineken or Grolsch, but with a hint of roasted malts too.
Grassy hops, orange golden colour. Taste is flat of malts, a bit of bitterness from the hops. Watery mouthfeel. Decently drinkable, but very boring overall. Seems like a macro abbaye beer... how can that be?
Nice label, but that's about it.

Got this beer in a sixpack from my brother in law. This beer is sold in the Lidl shops in Holland and they cost almost nothing.

Poured in my Struise glass the beer has a very nice broken white head and a somewhat darkyellow fluid.

The smell is OK, nothing spectacular. Taste is normal some hidden fruits in it.

Not bad for a reasonable priced beer!

Poured from 25 cl bottle into pilsner glass. Deep gold, small firm head and good lacing. Hints of carmel and pepper up front, malty with no hint of hops in middle, slightly sweet and decent finish with a burst of sweetness that is not cloying, yet present. It reminds me a bit of Pelforth Blonde with less character. The ingredients list glucose syrup which must be a preservative of some sort. This may add to the sweetness, not sure. Very cheap at Lidl and not the worst thing I have had in awhile.

Beer bottle (25cl), tasted in 2006.

Appearance : golden amber color, with white foam head (not persistent, but lacing).
Smell : spicy, caramel aroma.
Taste and mouthfeel : sweet, fruity, lightly bitter finish.
Drinkability : an average beer in Belgian pale ale brewered by Lefèbvre for LIDL distribution (oud Kerken = old church).
