330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a big off-white head. Aroma is soft fruity and yeast. Flavor is a sweet, fruity and almost like matured apple cider. Medium body and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. Refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at Arendsnest in Amsterdam - Pours mostly clear golden with a one finger white head. It smells of yeast and pale malt. The flavor is of sweet, yeasty pale malt with a touch of hops in the lightly sweet finish. It’s light to medium bodied and overall a decent session brew though I expected a bit more for a Trappist brew.

Had from a big ass stone corked bottle ..very hoiy grail. Drank down from a La Trappe Goblet, yes ,I came prepared. What to make of this beer. Its very eazy to sink,if dull and errtatic. It might be only 6.5 % ,but it feels heafty,yet paradoxically its drinkable. Dirty yellow..with sediment floating pointlessly..aroma was a werhl-wind of subtle fruit esters.spices and raw alcohol. Its too sweet on flavour range. I meant its sweet then boozy and dryisly sharp. Alcoholic spices zipping around..everywhere.

0,5 l ceramic bottle.Clear golden-honey colored beer with a small off-white head. Fine fruity aroma with coriander, some hop and malt. Medium bodied beer with smooth mouthfeel. The coriander is the leader with fine top-fermentation tastes, nice fruity flavor, rich malt. Delicious hop in the finish, dry herbal aftertaste. Nice ale.

33cl bottle at home, iRate: Lightly hazy dark gold with an amber center brew with a fading and somewhat creamy white head. Pale malt aroma with some oxidized caramel qualities. Golden raisins and some tea leaves... The tea goes with the oxidation. A touch of biscuit and a faint far off vanilla. Nice pale malt in the mouth... But definitely oxidized. Wet newspaper flows into more pale malt with brown sugar and a drizzle of caramel. Touches of toast, caramel, and soft cassonade sugar finish it out with just the right ammount of residual sugars.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is the first time I try a trappist beer from Holland, and quite frankly even if its geographicly close to Belgium, its beer is far from its neighboors.
I pours a clear gold color with an almost non exsistant white foam.
It has a malty taste but nothing special to my liking. I have had many regular lager that are much better, and for a Trappist I was very dissapointed.
