COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 08:59 K17D14. AROMA: sweet and spicy aroma background with some orange notes. some perfumy and honey-like alcohol aromas. APPEARANCE: intense gold color and translucent but with deposit that may give a very hazy appearance. good moussy white head with good retention and lacing. TASTE: smooth flavours with light notes of sweetness, esters (orange like) and spicy alcohols. medium-low bitterness with a medium-sweet finish. no hop flavours noticeable. PALATE: medium-low body with high carbonation. smooth alcohol warmth. OVERALL: an average exemple of a classic belgian blond ale (altough La Trappe is brewed in the Netherlands).

eduardovl (867) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Hazy orange color with a small bubbled white head. Some lacings S: Sweet malt is a must. Nice earthy yeasts and some honey T: Very nice sweet malt taste. Honey. Earthy yeasts. Dry in overall. Some bubble gum taste can also be felt. Light bitter "hoppy" end M: Medium body and carbonation D: High. Despite to its medium ABV, this is a quite drinkable beer. Good quality Trappist beer. Not a Rochefort or a Westvleteren but even though, worthy. [ BA Review @ 4/5/2010 ]

Pours a full golden yellow color with an of white head. The smell is spice, toasted malt, mild caramel and fruit. The taste is tasted malt, fruit, caramel, yeast ending crust and fruity. The body is light+ with crisp, nice carbonation. Certainly another nice La Trapped beer.
