A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

Bit of a stealth beer this. Almost orangy straw yellow with an easy froth head that goes the distance. Beautiful penetrating nose of lemon rind, candy sugar, dried fruit and yeast. Dry in the mouth, it always seems more carbonated that I last remembered. Not at all off putting though.More dried fruit on first taste delivering a long warm bitterness with spice and hints of thyme and rosemary. Superb complexity and devlopment over the life of the pour. Just builds and builds as the 9.5% ABV comes into play.There’s a lightness of touch too with finesse and elegance but a penetrating stern strength too.So much balance and restraint. Really kicks the brain heart and palate into action. As far removed from ’sessionable as possible. And I like it that way.

Hazy orange colour, with an off-white head. This beer has got to have the best smell out of any beer I’ve tasted, with lovely complex aromas of marzipan, raisins, dough and vanilla. Taste isn’t as good as the smell, I would rather say watery, with some fruit and spices. Medium body, medium carbonation.

LasseVPedersen (243) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Pours unclear, hazy orange with quickly vanishing off-white head. Bit disappointed at this point, but... Wonderful rich aroma of wheat, yeast, rich and intriguing spiciness. Dried fruits, hay, grass, juicelike apples and pears, lemon acidity and herbal notes. Taste, oh well, yeasty, fruity and citrus dominated. In-between of spices, malts, banana, apples, pears, apricot, cloves, hops. Warms as the booze, alcoholic middle and end kicks in. Full body, warm alcoholic, medium-high lively carbonated.

milo91hd (112) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottiglia, colore ambrato chiaro abbastanza torbido con una schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma molto fruttato con un accenno di malto. Al palato è davvero ottima, apre dolce con malto e frutta per finire poi con una nota amara mai fastidiosa. Corpo medio con una carbonazione media. Ottima tripel insomma.
