Light red colour. Aroma is light tang with zest - sticky and musty. Taste is yeasty tang and oh so interesing. Finish is sticky. Overall a delicious example of its style, but not a style I would run a hundred miles for.

Dobre piwo w stylu francuskim. Belgijskie piwo klasztorne nieco inaczej. Mocno strzela korek spore zmetnienie i brunatny przybrudzony kolor. Mocna i spora piana i pełny smak biszkoptowo-rodzynkowy. Aromat siana i skoszonej trawy. Troche nuty alkoholowej ale tylko w zapachu odczuwalem. Ladna stara stylistyka etykiety.
