Colour: bright yellow gold. Medium white head. Nose: fruity (lemon). Hints of wheat and grass. Not too complex. Flavours: Vanilla, orange peel, citrus. Hints of bread and banana. Finish: Mellow, refreshing. Not lingering about. Verdict: A fine drinkable Trappist, but not all comparable to the more common Chimay expressions. Gotta love the ABV, though.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with a average,,lacing and off-white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Light to medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice brew.

sk75 (20) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - SEP 20, 2014
A cloudy light amber coloured beer with a mighty white head that stays for quite a while. The aroma i get is a floral, grassy smell with a fruity, malty taste with some spice.The mouthfeel would be medium with lively carbonation..i also find it has a dry finish. A great easy drinking beer.
