3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy in the glass with a reasonable fluffy head. Honey and banana in the nose. Flavour is dry and hoppy with some metallic citrus flavours that remind me of acid drops. A slight spicey undertone. The alcohol is prominent in the aftertaste. I had this bottle for a few months and was really looking forward to it. Not the best Trappist, feels like its still finding its idenitiy, I understand they’ve only gone back into production fairly recently, but a good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2007 (Bottle) Pours light amber. Big white head. Fruity, malty, a bit spicy aroma with hints of metal, corn, pears, bananas and apple tobacco. Small undertones of allmond paste. Well carbonated, fruity, champagne-ish flavour with some sugar peas, pears and minerals. Short and pretty dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enormous offwhite head over orange body. Delicate aroma of stale hops, metal, and tropical fruit. Taste is powerful tropical fruit overlaid with metallic, stale hops and spice. Dry, astringent spice aftertaste. Very difficult to characterize, and quite complex. Very unusual, but nice, with lots of character. (0.33l bottle.)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden, slightly cloudy colour with huge creamy head. Aroma is citrusfruit, spices, caramel, alcohol and dough. Flavour is spices, wheat, slight alcohol and dough. Gets better while you drink and it gets a bit warmer. When warmer, it "smoothens" up abit. Pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle-poured a very mirky golden color w/a lot of floaties & a huge foamy white head. Sweet, fruity, floral aroma. Sweet flavor of straw, dough, citrus, bananna, & spice. Complex multi layer brew, another one that seems to get better as you drink it. Lots of carbination, lacing lasted thru the beer. Long, full chewy finish, very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Yellow gold color, no head and light lacing. Nose of sweet apricot, nice malts. Nice cake and a sweet tea. The flavor is sweet and nutty like rose water, brown sugar and straw. The finish is balanced. Nice creamy blonde, not snappy enough nor citrusy. Too caramelly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flowery and sweet, both nose and taste. No banana flavour tho, which is good. Very good blonde in my book. Not at all like weiss bier like many blondes tend to be. Very good mouth feel with good carb.
