4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On Draft - Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Poured out yellow in color into a goblet with tall bright white foam head. Malt, spice and yeast aroma. Soothing Malt, spice and yeast flavor balanced somewhat by the citrus hops then slight bitter/sour finish. Carbonation was low for a Belgium beer which created the soothing mellow mix of flavors. Very tasty and refreshing. Didn’t sense any alcohol.

Bottle - Bought it for a special treat for stop day. First go at an authentic Trappist. First impressions a sweet almost fruity taste. Final impresions, wow that was well worth the money, and when I get a job will be put into the rotation.

11.2 oz bottle - Pours a hazy, light amber with a moderate head that soon fades to thin. It has a citrus and yeast aroma. The flavor mixes the sweetness and sour citrus of a Belgian very well. It’s bubbly, medium bodied and smooth. The 8% ABV is well masked and the finish is crisp. A bit more intensity and complexity would have suited me, but this is certainly a high quality ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dirty yellowish amber, with a massive wipped cream head and excellent lacing, and a full body with a nose of cookie dough, dried fruits, pine. Palate is all alcohol! behind the ethonal is a very compex tasting of bread, yeast, wine, dried fruits (apple and apricot) and some melted butter. This tasted subdued by the alcohol comes back with a dry finish. Not my style, allready drunk. Maybe as a cocktail drink it would be great!.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle. Cloudy amber honey with streaming bubbles. Creamy white head; ready to shave. Umber streaks emerge. Aroma of soft dough, orange, banana, melon and Vienna Fingers. Simple but classic. Sour citrusy taste with apple and faint ginger(?). Not sweet; slight champagne vinegar. Nice full mouthfeel but still light. Finish is dry but leaves a oily, buttery coating; odd.
