    Fairly clean, light golden-yellow colour with a big frothy white head, good retention and some foamy patches of lacing. Sweet malt nose with some wheat notes of bananas and hints of herbal hops that do help. These hops do help even more in the taste. Pear flavours with enough dryness to cut the sweet malts. The bananas are still present, but really not offensive (oversweet) like the nose gives out to be. This aroma sweetness does calm down with time, and a little haze appears. Quite a nice light Trappist ale.

    330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 4.8%. Pale golden colour, vigorously carbonated, large white head. Pleasant aroma of Trappist yeast, yellow fruits and mild spices. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavour has the same elements as the aroma, with surprisingly distinct bittering hops in the aftertaste.

    Bottle courtesy of Fonefan: Poured a clear golden color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry malt base with a floral hoppy touch as well. Taste is a mix between some dry malt base with some Poppering hops, which provide a slightly dry finish with some floral notes. Full body with some great carbonation. Definitely an interesting beer to try and a refreshing Belgian ale that would be fun to try more often but in the end I would go to the Westy blonde instead of this.

    A fine Trappist brew from Westmalle
    Aroma: The aroma is a combination of hops and malts, rounded out by a little spice and floral scents.
    Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy, pale gold colour, with a generous white head..
    Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, with good carbonation. Some bitter hints as it rolls around the mouth
    Flavour: The flavour is a mix of malt and some citrusy flavours, followed by a nice bittermellow aftertaste
    Overall: Nothing more to say

    Thanks to sk8viking for this beer. Pours yellow gold, hazy with a foamy white head. The aroma is yeasty. The flavor is a bit yeasty with some citrus backbone. Great beer on a hot day.

    Deep golden colour with a large frothy white head. Sweet and and fruity aroma of red apples and strawberries. Small yeasty notes. Fruity flavour of yellow plums with a dry yeasty finish. Very good but a bit expensive session ale.

    Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour, small creamy beige head. Apricot in aroma along with malty hints. Dry apricot and some berries in flavour. Quite dry finish, weak berries in aftertaste.

    cloudy orange colour with a giant foamy head, yeasty nose, grapefruit, light- to medium-bodied, very creamy mouthfeel, robust bitterness, the finish is very dry with some earthy notes - thin-bodied but charming

    2004... Poured a light golden color with a large white head that quickly diminished leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy cardamom, perfumy orange peel, and yeast as well. Much of the same in the taste, with lots of lemon citrus, earthy yeast, and moderate carbonation. Very clean and crisp, a fabulous light Belgian.
