3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014
330ml bottle as “Montagnarde Ambree” bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.
Preparation: rested from the fridge for 10 minutes, then popped at around 12°C onto the Chimay chalice.
Looks: Cloudy hazy honey amber colour with traces of scrappy yeast sediments; One finger head with light beige foam which lasted for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with very small and bubbly carbonation.
Aroma: fragrant honey, banana, vanilla, strong caramel, light pineapple, raisins, assorted light dark fruits, malt, fairly light alcohol and Bel yeast.
Taste: nice sweet malt, with gingerbread, cookies, spices, light rum raisins, sweet caramel, very light alcohol, light Bel yheast, plus shades of lemon and grassy hops.
Body: Mid to light body, thin but slick palate.
Mouth Feel: body is somewhat thinner than most BSAs. Decent maltyness. The low sweetness is not sugary and paired nicely with caramel and light rum raisins. Spicy gingerbread and cookies took the main stage, very notable. The 9% booze is perhaps the most well hidden among BSAs. Nice!
Hoppiness: None in arona, slight lemon and faint grassy taste. Notes of bitterness. Nice and low sweet-bitter finish.
After taste: Quite dry, very easy and neat to mouth.
Comments: Whereas Abbaye des Rocs Brune is rich and expressive, this one is rather thin, low key and reserved: moderate head, bare minimum sweetness, light and caramel aroma, gingerbread and spicy taste with well-managed booze. Recommanded for light-hearted enjoyment at any time of day, but this ain’t no top dog like the Brune.

Orange-amber colour, hazy, head doesn?t last. Indeed, nose and taste get caramel, ginger(bread) and pepper but I also taste some sweet fruits, honey, clove, wood, even a little smoke and a nicely sour bitterness. Very well balanced, as expected from this brewer. Typical spiciness. Lively mouthfeel coming from the big carbonation, medium-thick body. I prefer the Brune but this is good...

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lively caramel color. Lazy white head. Aroma of wild yeast, 6 mo. old cut wood, earth and parched plum skin. Absolutely delicious. Bubbles make a show on the top. Taste is so smooth and mellow while maintaoning a fully satisfying experience, its not toi heavy. Sorry for the run on. Put this on your short list. This brewery knows Belgium.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.
