It has been a while since I have had this beer (it's really difficult to pass over the Grande Reserve), so I thought "it's about time."
This beer is amber in color (emphasis is on red) with a reasonable sized tan head. Starts somewhat murky but progresses further as more and more yeast is poured. The smell is rather tame for a Belgian abbey style beer. Fruity with a slight nutty aroma are noticed in the smell. Tastes rather malty with a decent hop bitterness. This beer is not as fruity or as "big" as the blue label. Malty and somewhat spicy. Subdued fruit flavors, particularly banana and citrus fruit. Quite crisp and very drinkable.
