3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice, light brown amber color, with a white/amber colored head.
Complex smell, spicy yeast, some caramel, fresh and lots of fruity (citrus) notes.
The taste is very good. The beer has a slightly bitter taste (a great mix of spicy hops and yeast) with a fantastic fruity aftertaste with some faint hints of caramel. It’s is a surprisingly well balanced amber beer.
The mouthfeel is very smooth, but the beer is a bit high in carbonation.
Overall a very good Dutch beer, especially for the summer period. One of my favourite La Trappe beers already (although not better than the la Trappe Quadruppel).

Dark orange. A lot of yeast but more fruit than a std Belgian (Dutch) ale. Some sourness/acid. A bit watery palate. There’s some bitterness but it fades off and finish quite bleak.

Tasting – The Wine Source. Hazed copper, creamy off white head. Soft rich figgy-orange nose warms to light caramelized plum-like notes. Subtle dark fruity flavors balance on a lighter toffee-pear undercurrent throughout. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, soft bittersweet finish. Worth checking out at least once…
