turbothy (1109) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a deep, cloudy golden colour with a dense head. Floral aroma. Initial mouthfeel is somewhat "spritzig" and sharp but quickly gives way to a pleasantly warming flavour. Good.

Mistig gouden kleur, witte kraag. Aroma van citrusfruit, gist en alcohol. Smaak sinaasappel, gist, alcohol. Lekker en verwarmend.

Benzai (8748) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle @ MaartenRF10. Thanks for sharing Maarten! Clear golden color, huge soapy off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, yeast, some fruityness, a touch of herbs or spices, some alcohol. A bit thin texture, average body, medium carbonation. Decent as always with trappist beers.

In fles van 75cl. Troebel geel van kleur met een matige schuimkop. Bittertje is goed te proeven naast de kruidige smaak.

75 cL bottle, poured in increments into an Achel glass. Lovely golden colour, effervescent with a foamy head. Yeasty, spiced aroma, nice dry hops. Dry, bitter aftertaste, a little yeasty. Smooth for the strength! Another tasty trappist.
