kindacold (213) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours orange/amber, small head. Smells yeasty, and a bit vinegary. Tastes malty and sweet, with a huge yeast presence. Spices, mild sweet citrus, bread, bit of salt. Finishes slowly, with sweet spiciness and pepper.

janubio (444) - SPAIN - DEC 15, 2014
Hazy orange colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a non compact lace. Smell of dark fruits, honey, and lemon. Medium body, creamy and sticky palate. Good carbonation. Taste of dark fruits, hoeny, lemon is more perceptible. Good, but not near the best trappist beers.

turbothy (1120) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2014
Pours orangey golden with a big head that quickly collapses to a more managable finger-wide sagging foam crown. Undefined bittersweet aroma, while the flavour is more sweet from the honey with nice hops. However, the intense carbonation makes it hard to enjoy the beer.

Cantabrian (883) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2014
An Austrian Trappist, eh? Somehow it feels it’s always been there. Really nice, with a wonderful aroma of sweet dark berries, more specifically jaboticaba jam. The flavour is yeasty, malty, with berries and a nice bitter finish. Copper coloured with a creamy off-white head. Excellent velvety palate, super easy to drink.

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!

Boxereddy (155) - BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Amberkleurig bier met beige schuimkraag. Gebrande mout, hop en specerijen in de neus. Karamel in de mond met scherpe bitterheid. Drooghoppige afdronk met bitterige nasmaak.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 12, 2014
1/4 liter Tulip glass draft at Redlight Redlight in Orlando, Florida. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a well formed one inch off white head. The aroma is slight fruit sweet, cracker malt and a bunch of herbal yeast. The taste is heavy on the spiced fruit sweet yeast elements, along with spice (potpourri) that lingers. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, mouth coating, yeast in the finish. This didn’t totally work for me, way too heavy on the yeast character for my personal taste.

Bottle, 330 ml at Pivkan, Zagreb. Pours orange with big white head. Malty and spicy aroma. Malts, bit fruity, yeast, spices, light bitterness.

corkyrory66 (709) - BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
Trappiste autrichienne d’Engelhartszell authentic product. Bière ambrée de 6,9 % abv. Couleur roux moyen profond, avec un voile de levure. Bulles fines partout par milliers en colonnes et quelques dissidentes. Mousse beige clair très épaisse avec des cratères en haut, superbe. Arômes de malt grillé, houblon, quelques épices et herbes, foin, pain 6 céréales. 1ère bouche bien texturée sur un très joli ensemble grain/houblon, plutôt malté. Arrière-bouche sur une amertume très pointue, girofle, câpres. 2ème sur un beau maltage cara et grillé. Arrière-bouche plus variée, assez pointue encore. 3ème sur malt et levure. Arrière-bouche sur du houblon quasiment en dry hop. La longueur donne beaucoup de nuances de baies (rouges, blanches, des bois), piment, poivron. Les jambes sont très marquées, un rien collantes. La levure est fine, très beau caractère. L’alcool est progressif, il est un bon soutien à l’ensemble. La finale ne s’envole pas. CONCLUSION : une trappiste, oui, mais pas dans les sommets de l’art. Juste bien réalisée, avec un bon côté visuel et quelques belles touches gustatives. Ce n’est pas assez pour le genre. Notons aussi que le miel qui est présent en ingrédient ne se ressent nulle part ...
