Bought in Madrid...

Looks great, deep red ruby color.

Standard beery aroma.

Fruity redcurrent taste. Not great...and too fizzy.

Tastes like alcopops, maybe some girls would like this. Though it´s simply not a beer that should exist

From Carrefour. In Legado de Yuste glass. Watching Breaking Bad 5x01.MG! This an abbey beer? Any monk would be ashamed of this junk. Brewing this is probably be unholy, a sin. Seems like a bad sweet macro lager

330 ml. bottle. Amber colour, off white head that fades soon, leaving a minimal lace. Smells of damp earth, some faint notes of caramel and fruits. Too much carbonation for a light body. Taste of caramel, with some spices and herbs. A big company trying to say they make good beer. Just a normal one, and not much to do with a real abeey beer.

The liquid is clear, the beer is obviously filtered. The colour is copper (22 EBC), the off-white two finger head sinks rather quickly down to a thin lid without any lacing.

The smell is quite bitter, it is a clean almost chemical bitterness. Some earthy frowsy notes of yeast (autolysed?). Exotic fruits, yeasty-spicy notes. Hints of leather. It is like an odd mix of an old lager and a Belgian ale.

The taste got some Belgian yeast notes, clean bitter notes and a fruity sweetness (apricots, bananas, pineapples, blue grapes). Passing chemical alcohol flavours. Some toffee. The body is surprisingly light. The aftertaste got warming alcohol, yeasty flavours of earth and Christmas spices and a dry note of green bananas. The finish is short with some fruit toffee flavours.

The carbonation is mild, the small long-lived bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is light with some creaminess.

Considering the ABV, this beer is very light. The taste is better than the smell, though.

Served from 33 cl bottle into a goblet. The label says it is an Abbey Beer in the Flanders tradition.

A - Medium copper color and very clear. Head is off-white, fluffy and thick. The head is fairly persistent and leaves good lacing.

S - If this is an ale it is the most lager-like ale I've ever smelled. It smells like a Vienna lager to me, not a Belgian ale. Bready malt, noble hops, some dark fruit, faint brown sugar and a bit of sulfur-tinged yeast. It is a good smelling lager, but way off the mark as a supposed Belgian Abbey style.

T - Taste is of bright noble hops and bready malt. Some brown sugar and maybe a hint of plum. No yeast notes. Like the aroma, all the elements are appealing and clean, but not right for the style.

M - Thin body. Fizzy carbonation with a slightly harsh carbonic bite. No alcohol noted. Low to moderate hops bitterness.

O - This is a well-made beer that does a lot of thing right in a generic way, but should not be called an Abbey Ale. As a Vienna lager or even a German Bock I would give it respectable ratings. I appreciate the effort by the brewer in a nation where beer is almost all a fizzy, watery, yellow afterthought to wine, but it needs some truth in advertising.
