3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 Hazy blond with a thinnish head for a Trappist but pretty damn decent for anything else. One big ring of lace and a few spots. Mild nose is lightly yeasty. Smooth mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Slightly thick and slightly sticky. Mostly sweet with some wheat malts apparent. Yeast esters add notes of cloves, earth, and banana. Eight percent ABV hidden well with nary a hint of alcohol. A good bitter dose of hops in the finish rounds things out nicely.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow with a average head and good lacing, medium-bodied. A lot of spice and citrus in the aroma. Sweet and warming taste, hoppy zing to balance it off. Very slight dough aftertaste. Lively mouthfeel. A darn good trappist blond. Recommended.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
There was a medium white creamy head with fine-medium bubbles when this brew was poured. The body was a cloudy gold color. The lacing was excellent on the sides of my glass. There was carbonation with this brew. The aroma was citrusy and spicy. There was no aftertaste and the taste was relatively smooth.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew pours a large head of fine to medium sized white bubbles and a very carbonated cloudy blonde body. It has a mild but very plesent aroma of malt, hop and floral scents. Its palate is smooth but fizzy at first then settles. Its flavor is mild with slightly complex flowery notes mixed with yeast and bread.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foam flows out of the bottle. White head that diminishes quickly. Cloudy golden body with an incredible amount of yeast coming into my glass(it's been standing in my cellar for 2 months!). Acidic and yeasty aroma. Thick body. Complex taste with sweetness, salt, slightly acidic and a bitter-dry finsh

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty cloudy blond. Aroma has a nice floral bouquet and a hint of sweetness. Definite yeast notes and hop character in the mouth. Meaty body with a surprisingly sweet finish.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 When pourred into glass the head quicly dissipate but reveal a beautiful cloudy golden ale. Smells of hops and yeast emerge from this beer with a very sweet finish. Very fine trappist beer.
Re-rate 2008: Spicy yeast with a light dry hoppy finish. Well done.
