Abbaye D’Aulne Triple Blonde 9°

750 mL corked and “braced” (as opposed to caged). No: 144302 on the cork. Best Before 03/10/07 which almost certainly means Oct 3 2007. Past that date, but I have no qualms about the ability of this beer to withstand that.
Healthy pop on the release of the cork. Poured into the Abbaye des Rocs chalice it provides a simple, golden honey colored hazy body, a lively but light head, and some nice lace.
Very light in the mouth and lacks much body. There is a white pepper note about the beer (in the aroma and the taste), but very little alcohol presence considering the ABV and it lacks a great deal of character. Finishes with a tiny note of bitterness amongst the thin fruits.
A bit like a “Belgian Strong Pale Lite”! Not much sense in that statement I know, but that’s what it feels like.
One of my favorite styles, but if truth be known a pretty average example.
