bouteille brune de 11.2oz, bue dans un verre Chimay
belle couleur ambrée tirant sur le orangée pale, la mousse blanche et mince disparait très rapidement, nez d’épices agréable, la bouche est épicée, piquante, très longue et bonne. j’aime le petit coté agressant en bouche.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very attractive 0.33 l bottle. Pours yellow body with medium head. Beautiful aroma of banana and some other sweet fruits. Some floral hops also present. Flavor bitter, a bit fruity and just a hint of sweetness felt in there. Ale yeast obvious. Quite full bodied beer. Finish is long and pretty complex. Very good, although I’ve expected even more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 ml bottle, from a Monastery gift shop just outside Cadubec en Caux, France. Pours golden color with a slight tangerine hue and a small fluffy white head that leaves a bit of lace. Aroma of sweetish summer fruits, citrus notes and spice bread. Spicy orange flavors, yeast and clove with undertones of shortbread cookie, and an herbal / floral hoppiness in the finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Nice belgian blonde, good but not remarkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beige beer with quite large white head. Aroma is slightly sweet but too light. Flavor is quite sofisticated but too light. This is too light for being good trappist.
