Look: Splendid orange color with a thick large bubbled ivory foam that dissipates to a sheen that leaves lacing.

Smell: Sweetness, honey, fruits, and a hint of tartness

Taste: Similar to smell with sweet honey flavor and a more pronounced sourness

Feel: Good carbonation fizz that accentuates the other characteristics.

Nice beer. One that I would have again happily

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.
