This beer is, well, fairly average and I'm having a hard time with the 250 character limit...as I always say, however, try it for yourself and you may find yourself wondering why you can only use 5000 characters. And yes, I had it at 48 degrees and it was served in a tulip.

Belgian ales are in a separate class of they're own ... and this one is a great example!

I am a brewer and I wish I knew how they did these, there has to be some secret to getting that slight fruity twang underneath it all ...that's what separates these beer from all others!

Slight head might have something to do with the high alcohol and I pour at an angle to minimize head retention. Strong ...about three times the flavor as an standard Belgian, imagine that. When I drank this one, I followed it with three other Belgians, because I wanted to see the difference. Three different beers, three different abbey's ... and much to my surprise, they all tasted the same, except in strength.

Floral honey notes with a twang!

330 ml stubby bottle, poured into a tulip at home, leaving the sentiment on th bottom, in the bottle. ABV 8,5%.

Big white head, three fingers in height, soapy in texture. Very good retention, leaving heavy lacing behind. All that, on top of a clear pale golden body, with minimal activity in it.
Aroma is yeast, slighty hoppy and with some fruit notes.Very subtle and faint.
Taste is sweet, with fruity notes, slighty alcoholic.
Full body and carbonation above average. Very dry and long finish.
Overall an okay beer.

11.2 oz bottle in a Stella glass

Dark cloudy yellow think two finger head large bubbles thin cap dissipates quickly

Lemon fruity light sent floral notes very light funk I would like to see a little more from a Abby

Light fruity flavor, slight malt, thin mouthfeel very light and drinkable. Little carbation.

Not bad overall, light easy to drink.

330ml bottle into a chimay goblet. "L2019" on the label. I don't believe this is super fresh. Gushed upon opening.

A - Very clear dark yellow body. Two finger off white head with large fizzy bubbles. Thin spotchy cap with minimal lacing.

S - Lemon, apple, doughy malts, spice, and banana. Has an almost sugar cookie sweetness to it.

T - Lemons, apple, spicy yeast esters, bananas and sweet caramel malts. Yeasty aftertaste. Mouth feel is well carbonated and medium bodied.

O - A really solid tripel. Tasty, but not on the same level as Chimay for me.

Bottle pour at the bottle share hosted by Adam Fine Wine & Liquor held at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same along with some slight fruity flavors. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is easy to drink but it tastes better than it smells in my opinion.
