From an 11.2 fl. oz. bottle marked 19/01/11-4322:48. Sampled on March 27, 2010 and served about 45 degrees. The pour is a cloudy yellow-orange with a short-lived off-white head that diminishes to a thin ring around the glass and a thin coating at the top of the beer. Clove, malts, and thin hops are the key sensations in the aroma, which is quite typical of a Belgian Abbey Ale like this. But it it not quite as pungent as some. The mouthfeel falls in the medium category with a likeable creaminess. The taste has all the right characteristics of clove, coriander, hops, and wheat typical of a Belgian Abbey ale. This is a beer that is a delight to drink but really does not stand out from other Belgian Abbey ales out there.

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
