4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep golden/orangey color ale with a huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of floral malt with candy-like sweetness, which is very enjoyable and reminiscent of the other beer from this brewery. Taste is also dominated by the candy-like sweetness and big malt. This beer does the same thing that Christophel did for me for Pilsner if you see what I mean.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer started and ended poorly. It was a struggle to get the cork out. Anyway... Hazy orange body with no head. Aroma is fruity with other fun Belgian stuff. Almost a stale basement feel to the flavor which hurt the fruity taste. If itís not that itís the yeast strain... and I donít like it. Really an odd fruity taste, not good in a beer IMO. Almost no hop presence here other than a bitter finish. Maybe the bottle went bad, but either way I didnít like this. I wanted to like this but it just didnít happen. I didnít want to post this before I finished the 750ml bottle, and believe me... it took a while. I even feel like 2.8 is a gift :(

Lasting white head, peppery dry hops hit you at the start. Taste has pepper with a touch of anise and ouzo.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2006 Pours a gold and beautiful beer with a big foamy head that diminished fast and leaves a good lacing. Aroma is malty/yeasty, full of fruity notes, melon, apricot, vanilla and peaches. There are also some alcoholic hints. The flavor is sweet and leaves a warming sensation. Very fruity as the taste with little if any bitterness. Goes down smooth with a fine alcoholic note.
Light bodied and well rounded. Fine Belgian Ale.

bubbly, small white head (i poured it crap). Fruity/floral aroma that is very faint (tho i had a bit of a blocked nose), colour is golden and turbid. Itís alright, nice belgian ale taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle this beer pours a gold with an orange hue. Nice full white head. Aroma is banana with spice yeast and that unique monk magic smell. Flavor is a blend of fruity malt with a small bit of spice in the finish. Light to medium feel in the mouth with a good amount of fizz. The fizz really dominates the flavor. This beer may be a good gateway beer to introduce a less experienced beer drinker to the more complex trappist ales. Not a bad trappist at all.
