Hazy orange colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a non compact lace. Smell of dark fruits, honey, and lemon. Medium body, creamy and sticky palate. Good carbonation. Taste of dark fruits, hoeny, lemon is more perceptible. Good, but not near the best trappist beers.

Came off a discount shelf. Seemed a bit skunky with limited secondary flavors.

Benno has a thin, white head of foam, an opaque, orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of honey, for sure, with some rich grain husk and sourdough bread. The flavor is of honey (which fades), sweet & sour sauce, sourdough bread, and relatively low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and prickly, and Benno finishes semi-dry and pretty drinkable.

A hazy honey coloured brew(brewed with honey ha!) massive head of foam since I didn't put the bottle in the fridge. Lacing is all over the place.

I smell the honey and what I reckon is a citrus spiciness. It's a very floral smelling brew overall.

The taste has some earthy malt and honey taste to it. I detect some lemon citrus that seems to grow with every sip. This is more of a hoppy brew than malty and that surprises me.

Medium body, not quite medium carbonation. Good mouth feel.

I wish I could say I loved this, being born in Austria and all, but I can only say I like it.
