This should not be compared to the Trappist Monks. It fell short. It was kind of bland.

16 Fl OZ ($3.99) had this with my dinner and ordered it being the beer junkie I had to try it. it wasnít half bad. I like the choice of hops which set it apart from most of the other USA abbey wannabes. It was good and seemed very fresh. I would order again.

Tap at bjs columbus. Pour red amber with little off white head. Nose is fruit ester and floral. Light bodied and thin for the style even. Hints of raisin and fruit with the normal floral tastes coming thru. Was hopeful but wasn't blown away.
