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.
