crossovert (7900) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
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.

Storm_Warning (80) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
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

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Mightily impressed with this. Pours a dark brown with decent head. Sweet Mars Bar / Caramel aroma with a taste that marries yeasty tripel flavours with a dark fruit-laden dubbel; vanilla icing and honey blending alongside some spicy, plum-fruit notes. Hugely complex and forever evolving towards sweet marzipan territory. Like a good episode of Game of Thrones you fine yourself wanting to drink it again to further understand it more.

ectuohy27 (627) - ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2014
Excellent--yeasty, spicy, strong, lively CO2, all you would expect from the style and with a nice velvety palate to boot. A bargain at €5/0.33L ($6.20/11.2 oz) in Tallinn.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy orange-brown coloured with spicy red fruit and burnt currant flavours, pineapple and zesty lemon and vanilla on the finish. Excellent!

sjjn (7) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2013 does not count
Aroma reminiscent of a weissbock. Spritzy like a good Saison. Taste has a honeyed sweetness, with a dry, spicy finish.

schuimkroaat (423) - 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.

ZodiacM (140) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2014
Een mooi donker-amberkleurig bier met een fraaie schuimkraag. Geur van mout en fruit (peer) en caramel. Smaak van mout en fruit (peer), caramel en noottonen. Door de koolzuur vrij fris van smaak ondanks de wat herfst-achtige smaak. Heerlijke kennismaking met deze nieuwe Oostenrijkse trappist!

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 I opened the bottle and put it one meter from me. 2 minutes later I could smell the strong aromas from the beer, with still the bottle one meter from me!
