330ml bottle. It is a pretty attractive brew, a hazy reddish amber with a huge off-white head that falls into rocky mountains à la Duvel. The smell brings to mind the Saison Dupont yeast, subtley spicey. It mixes with very nice bready malt tones and a slight with of earthy hops. Seriously the smell is amazing on this one. The flavor fits the smell nicely. Rich dark malt tones meld with the slightly fruity but mostly spicy yeast and a floral and surprisingly zippy bitter hop backing. Surprisingly good. I think the malt in this one totally outshines its counterpart.

Currently drinking whilst typing. Wow very nice indeed! Aroma is of sweet malts and spicy Belgian yeast with a slight mint character from the honey. Appears as a rusty orange/amber coloured vessel with a large white pillow like head that stays as a skimming across the top which leaves nice lacing. Taste is well rounded, sweet and malty with honey and a spicy yeast/hop character. Smooth and silky palate, gentle carbonation which is suitable and a medium body. Overall it is certainly delightful, a great addition to the Trappist family! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quintessential Belgian. Nothing overtly superb here but everything is done just right. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma reminiscent of a weissbock. Spritzy like a good Saison. Taste has a honeyed sweetness, with a dry, spicy finish.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2013
Amber, spicy, pineish aroma. Full-bodied, almost heavy, wild dark honey in the flavour (and in the recipe indeed). A bashing, utterly convincing hop aftertaste, a kind of how your head feels after a proper thrash metal concert. Actually, somewhere you can compare it to Orval, but this guy has more body and no lambic hints.

330ML bottle from Beer Tempel, Brugge - Cloudy orange body, pillowy white head, nose is sweet honeyed, bit of yeast. Sweet taste, lots of warmth there too, good bitter finish. Not sure it as good as Gregorius, but it is a lot more palatable if you want more than one.

Excellent trapist. Rich in bread, toast, roast with quite a bit of yeast. Herbs, citrus and very woody. Congratulations. The New Yorkers will love their shippings!

Takie troche delikatne jak dla mnie jak na Belgian Ale, Gregorius z miodem znacznie, znacznie dla mnie lepszy. Choc ma znaczek Authentic Trappist Product to zobowiazuje. Piwo jest z ladna i trwala piana o mglistym kolorze miodu, z niewielkim wysyceniem, stylowa etykieta i dobre wrazenie ogolne pozostawia to piwo z austriackiego klasztoru trapistow.

Bottle, BBE 08/05/15. Pours an orange amber with a decent-sized, yellowish brown head. Aroma is plum, dark fruit, peach, some yeast, a bit of marzipan and honey. Taste is a lot of the Belgian fruits: Peach and apricot as well as their darker, more dried up cousins. A little bit of honey and heather, dries up and turns more flowery on the finish. Very good, easily quaffable. Fairly gentle carbonation, medium in the mouth.

Pours a clear reddish beer with little saturation. It does have a nice white creamy head. Smells fruity and a bit sweet. Really nice smell. Tastes bitter and a little bit sweet. Has a nice sweet fruity palate. Really good beer.
