3.35/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

I poured this from an 11.2oz bottle into a Watou chalice. It had a sticker stating best before the end of 2008. So why does it have so much floating yeastie particles in it, really large mis-shaped globs which look like loogies in my beer. Honestly I hate this appearance, I've seen these large particles in several other beers and it's really hard for me to stomache.

The arome is nice and Belgian-y, with hints of bread and esters which remind me of St. Bernardus Tripel. The taste is hard to rate, with the gelatinous crud floating around making me feel apprehensive with each sip. I guess it was OK flavor, but my cringing made it seem less tasty. Was this bottle subjected to improper treatment? I cannot try it again, I won't.

4/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This beer is fairly new to the Austin, TX area. This is my second time trying a brew from Abbaye des Rocs, the first being the Triple Imperiale. The TI was pretty good, so I have some high expectations for this beer.

Poured an 11.2oz bottle into a snifter.

Appearance - After popping the cap, the brew produced head that slowly grew over the top of the bottle. After pouring it into the snifter, it produced a 2 finger white head that quickly dissipated into a halo around the edges of the glass. The head has a seafoam-like texture. It has a hazy translucent honey gold color. It became more transparent the more the beer warmed.

Smell - I can smell yeast primarily, along with green apples and just a touch of bready malt. I can also smell quite a bit of alcohol, which is funny considering it is only 7.5% ABV. Most Belgians I have imbibed do an excellent job hiding the alcohol content in their scent, it is like this one didn't even try.

Taste - The malty sweetness is pretty subdued, with just a hint of caramel. Very bready and yeasty. The main fruit flavor I get from this is green apples. There is just a hint of lemon zest in the backend of the drink. There is a slight tartness that leads into a dry, spicy finish. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Light/medium bodied. The carbonation level is near perfect for a beer like this. It coats the mouth in a way that wasn't expected for a beer of this style - in a good way.

Drinkability - Really good. It is a very easy drinking beer. I could see myself easily drinking several in one sitting.

This is a good beer, and I am glad it is available in the Austin, TX area. I would definitely buy this beer again.

11.2oz bottle

Golden-orange honey color with a fluffy white head that stick around till your done.

Smells sweet and yeasty mostly. Some fruity esters and slight alcohol as well.

Lots of hints at bread dough. Light yet sweet maltiness, slightest hint of caramel that is balanced well by a decent dryness on the finish.

Great soft mouthfeel that is quite substantial for how light the beer actually tastes. Reminds me of a drier Leffe blonde, much more thirst-quenching to me. Nice.

3.9/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours from a 750 mL bottle with a semi-cloudy copper golden straw hue topped with a densley packed attractive thick beige cap, leaving some drippy lace in the glass.

Light herbal nose with some hints of juniper and a farmhouse musty warmth.

First swigs: Herbal floral Belian with a chewy moist bread dough aspect. Earthy middle with a hint of phenolic flavors. Flour and dough leads up to a dry chalky finish.

Last swigs: Probably could use a touch more depth, but the straight forwardness contributes to a drinkable Belgian.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle bought from Belgianshop.com

Poured a murky rusty orange colour with an incredible amount of yeasty chunks floating around. Light creamy head poured big, thick and meringue like then faded very slowly to good thick layer... lots of good sticky lacing...

Aroma - Loads of spicy Belgian yeastiness, rich creamy and spicy fruits (oranges, apricots, overripe bananas, pears), some medicinal notes, quite strong aniseed notes, honey / candy sugar sweetness, candied peel, some grassiness, floral notes, butterscotch traces, very light malts, some sulphur traces...

Taste – Not quite up to the standard of the aromas.... spicy fruits (bitter oranges, apples, pears), light biscuity malts, nice peppery hop bitterness, light candy sugar / honey sweetness, faint anise notes, some saltiness, quite floral and perfumed...

Feel - Pretty smooth and creamy with a little bite... medium bodied... very drinkable although at 7.5% it might catch up with you pretty quickly..

Overall - An excellent Belgian pale ale although the huge chunks of yeast might be a bit off putting.... recommended...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hmmm, possibly the least impressive of the Abbaye Des Rocs line.

11.2oz bottle poured with medium carbonation, and typical for Abbaye Des Rocs, many yeast solids were suspended in the bottom 1/5th (mostly left out of the glass). Smell was mildly honeyish and sweet. Taste was was nearly there. Balanced in the sense that the 7.5% abv was well hidden, but other than that only some mild hop bitterness stood out with a slight touch of sweet.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a golden orange color with some yeasties floating around and a large creamy white head with excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is deliciously fruity (apples and pears) and yeasty as well. There is also a slightly buttery malt presence in the nose as well as must and spicy hops. The taste is slightly tart with must, spices, yeast and a pleasant maltiness that is finished with some spicy hops. Mouthfeel is light with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a delightfully satisfying brew from a simply phenomenal brewery. Recommended.

3.88/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearnace: Pours a cloudy deep yellow body with a dense, off-white head. Even with a careful pour, I still got a whole horde of yeasty chunks in my glass. I suppose that's what I get for buying such a tiny bottle.

Smell: A flower-filled, bready nose full of secondary fruity notes, mainly pears, white grapes, and lemon peel. Maybe some notes of soft, creamy cheese as well. Soft caramel notes appear after the beer has had a chance to warm up.

Taste: Light sugary sweetness mingled with soft wheat, over-rippened pears, herbaceous hops, and some mild flavors of clove and white pepper. Hints of caramel comes and goes. A touch of alcohol curaçao and a pinch of sea salt are thrown across the floral, mildly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated. Powdery texture.

Drinkability: One of the more enjoyable tripels I've had to date!

I bought a 330ml from a store on commercial ave in portland maine. This beer poured nice dark yellow with a great foamy type head with dense bubbles that have a heft to them as you take you first sip, There is in the smell, some sugar, some aging some hint of the grand cru brandy alcohol flavors, even though its a blond.

The mouthfeel is just enough, there is sweetness, a firm malty middle and a great taste of spice in the middle to finnish; there is alcohol, but it is warming and pleasant. The finish beckons for more. Its bdry, refined, with a spicey "hop type bitter" rounded out with sweetness finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle says best before 2008 (cant read anything else).

Pours out a dark hazy orange copper; haze is from tons of floaties. Nice thick white head rises and is retained for a while.

Smell. Lots of spices, cinnoman, some clove, and pepper. Fruit aromas are red apples and apricots, the apricot aspect gives it a creaminess. Big inhales i get a lot of sweetness, almost of cotton candy.

Taste. Quite mild flavor - seems very smoothe and mellow. Lots of nice fruity flavors, red apples with skins, dried apricots, and even some cherry. Spices i got in the aroma do not really show here, just the essence of them. Flavor is certainly on the sweet side. Finishes initially sweet, but then i get a tiny sourness like it was candy.

Mouthfeel. Body is medium, carbonation seems average to low, but goes well with the beer. The lower carbonation also gives this beer a nice creaminess that coats my mouth nicely.

Overall a great beer... these beers from this brewery are starting to become my go-to beers when i want a nice belgian.

another fine beer from Abbaye Des Rocs

pours just a bit hazy golden

smells just a touch of phenols and spicy esters

blondes don't usually excite me ( except my wife ) but this one comes across as a soft, mild tripel

all the drinkability of a basic blonde with a bit of spicy finish

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Like the three finger head in my Goose Island tulip glass. Good carbonation and sunshine color. The only thing that brought down an almost perfect performance was the crazy yeast flakes that were abundant in this brew throughiout the whole 750 ml's of this bottle. At first I thought it was ice from maybe sitting in my fridge for too long. Not the case, straight up yeast sediment that decided to stir at this moment I guess. The aroma is a light fruit and alcohol. Pretty muted from a Belgian Brewery of this prestige. The taste seems very m,uted and subtle with the usual fruits and spices I've come to expect and enjoy from this brewery. Touches of honeydew and cantaloupe and anise and fennel. The light palate was hindered greatly by the alcohol with the feeling of sediment on each and every sip of this beer. Didn't drink with as much exuberance as expected.

Pours a two finger white head that fades to a ring leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color with a ton of chunky bits. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Starts malty and smooth, hops become noticeable but are balanced with the malts, sharper than some Belgian blondes but still good. $3.90 for a 330ml bottle from Liquid Solutions Tigard, Or. Label has: best before end of 2007.

Purchased a 33cl bottle at Beaumont Market. On clearance; dated "best before end of 2007". Poured to a 'La Rulles' mini-goblet.

A: Fuzzy golden blond. Whoa, I thought I poured carefully - however, there are massive amounts of suspended yeast globs. Lots of yeast coating the bottom of the bottle, too. Some vigorous carbonation streams wiggle through all that murkiness. Frothy 1 finger+ white head with good retention.

S: Wheat, with an herbal effervescent tingle. Spiced aromas of coriander, clove & some dry pepper.

T: Sweet but with a dry finish. Lots of yeast and spices, resembles a tripel in flavor. Flavors are generally likable, except for a funny tasting pepto-bismol/medicinal chalkiness in the finish. Has a raw, natural/rustic quality and good strength.

M: It's an odd sensation sipping a beer and having discernable clumps of yeast in your mouth...it's only happened to me one other time (Millevertus' Blanchette). A bit prickly and crisp mouthfeel with a slightly sticky dry finish.

D: A good Blonde - nicely spiced. Despite the funky appearance, I'd probably get this again. Strength is sneaky at 7.5% abv...one of these would be enough. Give it a try...

This beer pours a orange color with lots of carbonation and a big head.

Smell of honey and light caramalt, good malt smell and some alcoholic whiffs. Bitterness comes through.

Taste is honey and spicy with a good bitterness. Carbonation is sizzling on the tongue. Body is somewhat sticky and aftertaste is dry. The typical yeast profile of Abbaye des Rocs is evident and leaves a sort of Trappist kind of taste with some solvent-like notes.
The alcohol becomes prominent after swallowing.

Not the best beer from Abbaye des Rocs, but certainly an above average tripel.

11.2 fl oz. bottle, "Best before end 2008" on back.

Upon first pouring this, I thought the seal had been broken and mold gotten into the beer. The sheer volume of floaters was scary. I enjoy unfiltered beer, but this was ridiculous. Consequently the mouth feel was like drinking orange juice with 'lots of pulp.' So much stuff floating around, it reminded me of Flying Dog's Horn Dog barley wine. The taste was good, but nothing outstanding. Honestly, drinking 'beer with pulp' really killed the experience for me.

750ml bottlecapped green bottle with best before end of 2008 on the back. Pours a hazy sediment filled orange amber with a nice cramy head and pretty good lace. Some skunkiness noted during the pour but once in the glass a nice malt presence is detected along with honey, slight brown sugar and a bit of citrus. Big Belgian malt flavors followed but nice hop flavors and biterness. Somewhat citrusy and a bit earthy. Fruity. Warming, surprisingly so for a 7.5abv. A decent brew. The only down side was the skunkiness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

More orange than amber, with a huge amount of large, proteinaceous floaters that I tried, unsuccessfully, to keep out of the glass. With a 'best by' date of end 2007 I wouldn't have expected the beer to look this scary. The head is great, however. Rich, creamy, rocky and sticky, it resembles very lightly toasted marshmallow and leaves fantastic looking lace. Minus the junk, the appearance score would be a 4.5 easily.

The aroma is enjoyable. I'd rather continue to sniff than drink that wispy crap that's floating through the glass. The beer smells like an especially fruity, yeasty tripel. Buttered, spiced apples, peaches and pears greet my nose with each sniff. Very Belgian and very nice.

Blonde is good beer despite its chunky nature. Actually, I'm not even able to appreciate the proteins, so all is well. It sure isn't subtle, that's for damn sure. It tastes young, thanks to the somewhat harsh, still bombastic alcohol. If I'd waited any longer, though, it might have been a solid mass of protein and would have been unpourable. The 'best by' date makes me think that it's at least several years old.

There's no doubt about it, I would have guessed Belgian tripel in a blind taste test. Each sip results in a burst of unripe pears macerated in young, still raw, pear brandy. The clove and white pepper spiciness is pretty hot as well, but that might be due to the alcohol more than anything else. Hard to believe 7.5%. It drinks at least two percentage points higher.

The taste score is a moving target, but I'll settle on 'good'. Be aware, though, that this is a boldly flavored, unsubtle, ripsnorter of a BSPA that lacks the refinement of the world's best versions. In fact, it would probably be great when paired with all sorts of food. It wouldn't back down from even the spiciest BBQ or the most pungent curry.

The body/mouthfeel is firmer than it is full or creamy and is exactly what this beer needs. It holds its structure through the long finish and is even a bit slick on the back end. As well, it's no more carbonated than most Belgian beer. That is, it's lively without being manic.

I know that the clumps of proteinaceous crap are only cosmetic, but visuals matter. Even though I can't detect them while drinking, I'm still put off by the thought of ingesting them each time I tip up the glass. Brasserie Des Rocs Blonde is a good version of the BSPA style, but is far from a great one. Drinking it is turning out to be a wild ride that I won't be all that sorry to see come to an end.

Chunky proteins suspended among glimmers of orange and peach coloring. Full, creamy Belgian foam that lasts. Those Belgians sure know their head retention. Fairly expressive nose, which hints of lemon and lime, as well as hints of orange, tangerine and a spicy, peppery hoppiness. Flavor is fairly sweet, hoppy, with some honey covered fruit notes, citrus and vanilla. Nice balance.

For the record: my low appearence scores reflect the gross and nasty chunks that are often present in their beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Peachy, bright gold in hue; the color is lovely but I don’t care for the massive amount of floating protein, it looks like a shaken snow globe. White head, at the apex the foam was one finger tall (which is too short, IMO); surprisingly the head faded to a soapy collar fairly quickly. I was expecting a larger and healthier head, oh well. The subsequent lacing was spotty and disorganized. Overall, the appearance is decent but more “flawed” then special.

Even though I purchased a capped bottle I smell cork. How odd. Other notes included spiced apples, orange peel, herbs, and coriander. At the back is some sourness. How odd. Low potency; not too chatty really and I am confused with what it is saying. I don’t want/like to classify Belgian beers but what is this? A Sour Wit/Pale Ale? I’m not getting much depth; some of the aromas are agreeable but others scare me. I hope the palate tastes better then this smells. In the end, I’ll call it inviting.

Well… it doesn’t taste much better then it smells. On the palate I get about everything on the nose indicated. I like honest beer. I taste woody notes, spice, coriander, fruity jam, orange peel, a sprig of herbs, and some wheat. It is taking me a bit but I am starting to like this beer. For 7.5% abv the alcohol is a little too vocal. I don’t really understand the woody finish. The more I drink the more flavors emerge, like pepper and a very distant kiss of bubblegum. What I am supposed to do with this beer? It really isn’t a very good Pale Ale but is it really a Pale Ale? I don’t think so. It is a fairly tasty beer with oddities. I wonder if I have an off bottle as I can’t imagine this woodiness is wanted. Maybe it is. The only thing holding back the palate is the lack of complexity; I have little more then a pleasant tasting but straightforward beer. Good but forgettable.

Medium in body, I can feel the yeast clumps on my tongue when I swallow. Low carbonation, the mouthfeel is adequate but it’s nothing special.

I had very high expectations. I love Abbaye des Rocs but this offering failed to impress me. Still, this is a solid beer but others like it are better. Yes, this beer is drinkable but I am no real hurry to rush out and get more. I do think this beer would kick ass with a fruit salad. I purchased my bottle in Kansas City, MO. Worth a try.

12oz bottle dated best-before May 2008.

Poured cloudy yellow-peach with out-of-control off-white meringue-like head. Lots of yeasty-looking floaters even though the bottle was allowed to rest and was poured carefully. Sweet alcohol citrus fruit and and hops in the nose. Slightly toasty grains and carmel on the tongue, with medium-sweet finish and gently prickly hops. Flavor is pleasing but uncomplicated; earlier fruits are almost absent from the taste. Well-carbonated and somewhat creamy in the mouth, but the texture is ruined by the floating yeast. Pretty drinkable, but mouth-feel and somewhat disappointing flavor ultimately bring the beer down.
