Medium, grainy sweet. Medium bitter, yeasty bitter. Medium-light body, high carbonation. Spicy, creamy. Long dry finish. Bit harsh.

Not bad.

This is the first Trappist beer I've had and it was an absolute treat with a really vivid banana flavour, a nice head, and a good cloudy golden colour.

light orange color is nice, but head retention and lacing aren't enough.
smells orange, mandarin, slightly banana and floral hops.
taste is semi sweet, but aftertaste is dry. finishes warm, nice.
medium bodied, too much carbonated and it hurts the feeling.
nice fruity and balanced pale ale, good refresher.

Broke my rule and included a Dutch beer into my beer advocate review list.

This one is all over the place, look and smell are nondescript, a mild hazy appearance coupled with a dishwater head that is gone faster than the Bandit with Buford T Justice in hot pursuit!

Smell gives very little away, and I am struggling for any meaningful aroma.

The taste and feel however are definitely this brews strong points, a nice fresh fruity feel which is smooth and also leaves a little fizz lingering in the mouth.

Overall I think this is a pretty decent beverage, easy to drink which is the main thing!
