Uma boa cerveja. Ela é mais leve e tranquila. Dourada e de sabor e aroma moderados, porém possui seu equilíbrio e condescendência com a proposta. Uma notável representante das Belgians Blond Ales, talvez até uma das melhores nesse estilo não tão badalado.

4.03/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a - amber/brown colour, pours a 8mm head that dissipates to a 4mm lacing (not too quickly mind), partly cloudy-bit of sediment in bottle

s - malt/wheat odours, hint of vanilla, pear, subtle

t - yeast is present in the taste, then comes fruity and slightly sweet aftertaste

m - medium body, slight carbonation, slightly dry and crisp. Relatively smooth for its type

not too bad, there are more flavour in other abbey beers out there, but relatively low alcohol content could be a bonus (or not, depending on taste)

750ml corked/caged bottle split between two large snifters. Best before 03 2015 L4287 07:48.

Pours slightly cloudy golden -- slightly cloudy because I poured some of the sediment in. It was crystal clear until then. White head, not much carbonation. Smells Belgian, yeasty, spicy. Maybe a bit of banana.

Taste is mild, but very fruity. More of the banana, some other fruit, maybe apricot. A little funky yeast.

Mouthfeel is very light. Overall, very good beer.

Dumpy 33cl bottle: BBD 05 2016, poured into a Westmalle chalice during 11 2013.

Looks good, almost clear golden body with a full and lasting foam blanket of white bubbles, I don't mind the slight haze if all the beer leaves the bottle.

The aroma was of semi-sweet fruits (apricots, oranges and peaches) dipped into Belgian yeasts: almost like a fruity breakfast spread of marmalade or jam.

The taste was a little less sweet, with the yeast taking centre stage, an old, musty feel arrived which added to the whole flavour. Herbal, spicy notes kept my taste buds interested and i thought it was a good brew from start to finish.

Body and mouth feel were fine and this is a fine beer, I look forward to finding it on-tap somewhere one day.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a chimay glass. Deep golden color with a nice two finger head. Lacing nicely as I near the bottom of the glass. Mildly sour with fruity notes in both the smell and taste. This is my first impression but I would leave this one out of my top five Abby style beer. Great beer but it is in a tough catagory. Price point was on par with the beer though. A good value by comparison to other Belgian Trappist style beers.
