3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours a rich medium brown with a large beige head. Aroma is a bit dusty, with Belgian yeast, mild sugars, and mild dark fruit. A little cream too as it warms. Flavor is metallic overall, with underlying brown sugar, cream, egg whites, banana, yeast again. Pleasant flavor overall if you take the quarters out of the equation. I don’t know why its so metallic; maybe it was kept improperly before I assumed posession? Medum viscosity, pleasant carbonation on the tongue at the finish. Overall, good.

Pours slightly cloudy chestnut with big but light off-white head. Honey, chocolate, roasted malts, slightly herbal and grassy on the nose. Sweetish, medium bodied palate, rather long finish with notes of roasted almonds and next to no bitterness.

Robijnrode keur. Geur: Gebrande mout en hazelnootjes. Smaak: zoetig, wat kruidig en een vleugje zurigheid, maar mooi in balans. In de afdronk terug zoetigheid met een zuurtje.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
8%ABV. Belgian Strong Beer.
Poured out of the bottle a turbid black brown. 30ºSRM.
Nose has the same carbonated sweetness that is remiscent of a bottle cap coming off a 7Up. There is a malty sweetness with a grain like sourness, which combined can only be described as the aroma of rye.
Carbonated mouthfeel. Light and sudsy. The same flavor of a herbal tinged sweetness with a slightly rounded and mildy sour palate. "Chin Chow" again for those who know. Those who don’t may compare this quite nicely to the flavor of rye.
Finish is beery and otherwise not very interesting.
Malt or carb-balanced. Good traditional product and an exemplar of the style. Been done that way for some time now. So you either like it or you don’t...I suspect, they don’t really care.

Sweet lightly toasty hoppy flavour, Mildly bitter in the finish and both bitter and sweet in the mouth. Pours reddish dark brown and retains a small white head.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Bought in La mise en Biere in laussane. Deep smell, but not that complex for a trappist, good anyway. Deep golden color with white head. Taste is really really good; a classic trappist with a lot of flavour in the back. Pepper, strong malts, cereals and everything is there. A fan of Achel from now on. This has nothing to do with the beer, but the label is fucking awfull.

Bulles fines et abondantes, très ronde et douce en bouche, caramélisée juste comme il faut, amertume absente, houblon(s) très léger(s)... bref, ça passe tout seul, un vrai délice.
