Nose high in alcohol but also think of coarse grains. The presence of alcoholic who tickle our nostrils is as strong in the mouth and not very pleasant, it seems that beer is more than the alcohol content listed on the bottle. In addition to this, it offers a heavy body puffed cereals which gives a sensation of food. Taste. Very heavy on the stomach and very indigestible. A comparison with the Leffe 9 can be interesting.

This is beer from a 750ml corked and caged brown bottle purchased from an ALDI store in Ireland, possibly brewed exclusively for the chain. The label reads Abbaye du Park Abdijbier blonde. On the back label there is a piece of history about Park Abbey (Heverlee) and brewed by NV INFRA S A, with the address of the Haacht brouwerij given. A consult of the Park Abbey website (in Dutch), says nothing about beer, so I reckon that the name is being used as a marketing tool.

On to the beer;

Best Before 17/07/10, tasted on 02/05/09. Poured into an oversized wine glass giving a crystal clear copper coloured brew with small bubbles rising to give a nice enough white head. Some lacing remained.
The smell was mostly a pilsner hops type aroma with a coppery metallic note.
The taste was subdued, with some maltiness with a touch of honey (?). There was a dry slightly metallic finish to it.

Overall not bad, and priced at €3.49 for 750ml was reasonable, but this is no world beater, and not particularly "Abbey" in style.
