Made in the style produced by Trappist monks in the Abbeys of Belgium, Resurrection has complexities not unlike wine and there are very definite spicy/herbal characters both on the nose and palate. Deep copper red in colour with a light white head. The nose has distinct bubblegum, spice and herbal characters from the yeast used and the fermentation regime. These aromas are noticeable on the palate too along with a Gewürztraminer wine-like perfume. The palate is complex and rich but balanced with a cleansing bitterness. Drink with care! We suggest warming your glass with cupped hands to fully release the flavours and aromas of Resurrection.

jercraigs (9894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
2016-05-31. Lightly hazy mahogany brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of fruity estery Belgian character. Light sugar and alcohol. Flavour is relatively sweet, fruity estery character, lightly sugary and caramel notes. Very light alcohol. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft to low carbonation, is adequate but feels thin for the style. Pretty simple but enjoyable. 7/3-4/7/3/15+ On tap at Galbraiths, Auckland, NZ.

Bif (2073) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Served a mahogany color with a small head that fades to just bits of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, spice and herbal. Taste of dark fruit, with a solid presence of malt in the background with some spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Medium body,smooth with a richness that increases as it warms. Enjoyable sipper, from a brewer that tends to lean towards british style ales. Worth checking out.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 15, 2013
It’s a brave brewery who attempts a Belgian ale in New Zealand. So often it goes wrong or misses the mark. What impressed me was that blindfolded I would have known exactly what it was supposed to be. Appeared dark amber with a cream coloured skim of head. The persistent carbonation gave a certain sherbety character in my mouth along with plenty of Belgian style flavours: tarts, orchard fruit and allspice, dates and even a hint of musty basement. True to character and enjoyable in form. Well done.

TimE (5100) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2012
very rich malty character with notes of caramel milk chocolate and cherries. Rich warming. Not massive complexity but well made and enjoyable. Alcohol is a bit present

AussieAl (5) - - MAY 9, 2012 does not count
This is a truly lovely beer. Even if the "Belgian" word seems scary, don’t be afraid. This is a big soft rich warming beer with fruitiness, sweetness and subtle alcohol. Like a cold northern Christmas to a Pom (me). It’s a sipper, and it changes as it breathes and warms.

Dudar (108) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 16, 2011
Ruby brown, low carbed, minimal head. Nose: spices, caramel, toffee, fruit. Taste: malty, fruity, peppery bitterness, some raisins, biscuit, bread. Alcohol apparent but not unpleasant.
