4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2004 first in a trappist rating string of 5. Musty citrus aroma, with notes of orange, lemon, and lime. Pours a cloudy yellow, with floaties and a perfect, beautiful rocky white head (in my Belgian Ommegang glass). Nice citrus malt flavor, with a little taste of said fruit. Malt flavor is creamy, and all indications point to a very well made brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright golden orange color with a creamy white head. Very beautiful in appearance. Aroma was a bit yeasty with a little bit of banana. The taste was crisp and matching of the aroma. A bit too bitter for my tastes but better than your average beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy yellow body topped by a creamy white head. Lacing is excellent. This beer looks very nice. Pleasant yeasty fruity aroma. Flavor is quite nice, fruity, peaches and citrus. Somoe bitterness develops towards the end. Body is medium and smooth. A very nice brew worthy of its Trappist label.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Very hazy, yellow ale with a large, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Great lacing.
There's a lot going on in the aroma and flavor. Tons of spice, banana, zest of orange, etc. Full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Lengthy, crisp, dry finish. Complex brew... to say the least! Thanks to bierkonig for the bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
As light as an unfiltered wheat. As light as a snowflake. Yeasty nose and citrus flavor. My opinion the lightest of all of the Trappest ales. Refreshing.

This beer came across light looking, but within a first taste and deep smell of yummy citrus. Very bubbly freshening crisp going across the tongue. I enjoyed this beer.

Bottle pours a hazy yellow amber with a minimal head but good lace. The aroma is yeasty and clovey. The flavor is yeasty, citrus, clovey, sweet, and well balanced with hop. The palate is sort of slick in the mouth but also carbonated. Overall, this is fine.
