3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yeah, I dont see how joet calls out urine in the aroma, but still favored the quality! Yellow with a slight haze to it. Aroma of sweet play-dough and citrus...just plain weird. The taste was much better than the aroma, sweet, smooth, and fruity, hops and alcohol notes as well....everything came together well and lingered on the tongue nicely....this beer rallied after the shakey start.

Bottle. I wish that my nose were as sensitive as JoeT's such that I could have picked up urine in this, and I'm wondering how he can give it an 8 despite this! :) I thought it smalled more of a typical Belgian single style, maybe a bit more stale though. Nice effervescent and fruity flavor, but not enough to validate the $8 that I shelled out for this so that I'm hitting for the cycle of trappist breweries.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Urine, perfume, honey, yeasty and altogether blending very nice in the nose, light medium body is not spectacular. Mostly volatile flavors.

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.
