look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear golden color with a medium top of white head, decent lacings on the sides off the glass. Aroma off green apples,pears,lemon, grains,ligth bread, honey and sugar. Flavour is at start sweet with quite malty notes inn the back, then it gets slightly sour in the middle before it finishes off dry with some bitterness. Decent lenght in the aftertaste. medium bodied with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. All in all is a decent and easy driking belgian ale, but nothing really exiting about it.

Deep veiled golden color with storming activity. Frothy beige 3 finger island head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with generous legs. Flavors of apples, caramel, sweet grains, pears, clove, floral yeast, lemon, honey, herbal spices. Thick sweet malty feel with a dash of bitter spicy yeast and hops. Smooth medium body with almost champagne like carbonation. Medium strength finish that last a while, with lingering ester fruits with some honey dryness, a dash of citrus, and a cheese like barrel aged feel. Superb balance and intensity. Very tasty and a pleasure to drink. Overall excellent quality craft.

Amber color with a thin thick head with decent retention.
Initial slightly sour and somewhat funky aroma with notes of pear, some herbs and green apple.
Flavor with notes of green apple pure, pears, orange from concentrate, coriander, grainy malt, bread dough, sugar cane juice with lemon drops, herbal and earthy hops and a bit of perfume. Dry aftertaste with just the enough bitterness to balance it.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
I found this rather decent; not super complex, but within what is expected for its style, and balanced and quite pleasant. I wouldn’t think twice to have this over a regular Lager.

From Alcampo. In La Trappe chalice. After dinner. Peachy nose, not so much peach in taste but a nice bitterness.

head rigid, pretty big, white, fine-bubble, a long time remains on the surface of the liquid, lavishly adorned with glass.
Malt aroma, with a touch of honey, caramel, slightly noticeable alcohol, are also delicate floral notes.
Taste falls very pale, feel a little caramel, honey - although beer is not sweet, some bitterness there, all in all not too special and much, just enough. Saturation large,
on the tongue feel scratching bubbles. And that was that.

330ml bottle, another cog in the 1/2 Meter of Beer mixed pack from this brewery now available in Alberta.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden amber hue, with four fingers of puffy, frothy, and chunky eggshell white head, which leaves a fair bit of splotchy linked-island lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away.

It smells of sharply toasted pale crackery malt, white and black pepper, warm apple slices, metallic yeast, and a further dry mixed berry fruitiness. The taste is baked apples and pears, bready, kind of doughy pale malt, a touch of sugary caramel pudding, edgy yeast, faded table pepper, white wine must, and earthy, floral, and faintly perfumed hops.

The bubbles are decently playful in their rounded prickliness, the body an adequate medium weight, and generally smooth, in a low-fi, slick sort of manner. It finishes off-dry, the lingering pale malt breadiness contending yet with yeast, bitter fruit, and a suggestion of warming alcohol.

A pretty well-rendered BPA, the cast of characters more or less complete. Fruity, yeasty, spicy, and a tad boozy, all in balance. Worthy of multiple rounds, if this is your sort of thing - me, I'm just happy to try a new Belgian Abbey brew, with a few more to come.
