3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium copper in color with an average sized off white foamy head that was mostly lasting and had some what fair lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a light resin hop and a sweet yeast with a hint of apricot, banana, dried fruit and some spice (cinnamon and maybe a little nutmeg).
It tasted very light, sweet and malty with notes of sweet dried fruit and banana in the beginning and finished moderately sweet with a tinge of bitterness that had a nice malty feel to it with notes of caramel and spices at the end. Although I would have liked the flavor to last a nice long while, it only lasted a short time.
Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and watery yet somewhat creamy in texture with a flat carbonation.
Overall a very enticing brew, but anything from this brewer seems to taste well.

Big, spritzy and floral. Subdued Belgian yeast. Pleasant balance between astringency, acidity and bitterness.

Bottle to a tulip. Deep amber brown with foamy tan head and lacing. Belgian roasted malt, caramel sweetness and yeasty spice. Balanced, smooth, delicious. Top notch...

Pours with a nice cream head, aroma is nice with a apricot overtone. The copper color is pleasing. Mildly sweet with a slight bitterness at the finish. A great sipping beer before a meal.

On tap at Niks Wunderbar. Pours a cloudy red with thin head. Hint of dried fruits, figs, raisins. Dryness shines through as it warms. Not extremely complex but enough malt to balance the dry finish. Love it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance- ruby/brown, quite dark, a bit murky. 1-2 finger off-white head which slowly settles down before disappearing. Aroma- yeasty, dark fruit hints, cherries, plum, a bit vinous, bready malts. Taste- lots of cherry, fruitcake, nutty hints, malty, medium mouthfeel, fairly short finish. More sweet than bitter. Very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky red-brown. Ample carbonation. Taste is very malty. Caramel, raisin, toffee and some light bittering hops to offset the sweetness. Very good Trappist ale.

Botella 33cl. De color rojizo oscuro y espuma ligera, con sabor a caramelo que se va deshaciendo hasta volverse a tonos tostados. Gran sabor y muy buen cuerpo. Una agradable sorpresa.
