New Hampshire

4.1/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 11-171-01-12:16-1711. Sampled on May 6, 2012. It pours a very attractive top of the line heady, pale yellow with a slight fog floating around and busy carbonation. On the nose I get an enticing dose of Belgian yeast, soft, delicate malts, sugar, and pear. The body is pleasantly creamy and a bit better than medium in texture. The taste is sweet with malts and yeast and a light hopped ending almost bitter ending. This is a marvelous Abbey Blonde.
