Cloudy orange, with a huge white head. Aroma is grape and a hint of dishwater, but in a good way. Has a dry is flavor, with notes of white wine and figs and grapes. Pretty for easy to drink for an 8% brew.

hazed orange yellow body with a lot of floaties and a substantial white pocked head. yeasty warm plowe filed aroma with a light lemon citrus and anasthesia. flavor reminds me of the polish the dentist uses when i get my teeth ckleaned. a bit minty with some resin. somewhat sticky a bit rubbery.
biting bitterness that is nice. plum and mint in the finish. a nice sweetness emerges as this warms. a bit soapy, but not bad.

Pours out a golden color with a nice white head, and a lot of yeast sediment left in the bottle. Aroma is fruity. The flavor is of fruits most noticible bannana and apple. Finish is somewhat citrusy, a good brew, but not one of the best trappists.

Poured light golden with a thick white head. Unyielding retention. Smell had apple, corriander, lemon, banana, cloves and white wine. Taste had candy apple, caramel, cloves, banana and white wine. Kind of like a strong wheat beer with more alcohol and caramel added to it. Apple cider comes into it as well. I would call this a Tripel personally. It has the strength and complexities.
