A reddish brown ale with a thin light moka head. In aroma, loads of barley candy, maderized, faint cardboard. In mouth, maple, treacle, nutty notes, light alcohol warmth, a bit light and tired. Shared with GRM, March 10 2011.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a light copper. Nose is malty/yeasty. Dry with fruit notes, Belgian yeast and a dry finish. Seems like a Belgian session ale,but there is decent depth and warmth to the flavor. Caramel/honey finish.

This beer has a very sweet and tart taste. The aroma reminds me of a stick of Blackpool rock

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip glass from a bottle. Appearance is a mildly hazy amber with a huge beige head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is toasty notes of bread and fruits. Taste is a lot like an apple. On the verge of sourness, but it just doesn’t quite get there. This is a very nice beer. Definitely one to pick up if you get the opportunity.

Draft at the double windsor. Huge aromas of grapes, dark fruits and yeasty bread. Flavors follow the nose with perfect balance of sweet and dry. Pretty good.

12oz bottle, new Trappist tick, spicy Belgian aroma, quite a bit floral and yeasty, easy to drink, not a bad option.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle, unique cap to this beer. The first Konigshoeven beer to be labeled as ’La Trappe’ in the United States.
It pours a darker brownish/reddish pale with a hint of amber. The head is massive and ivory white and as it recedes it leaves delicate lacing.
This one packs a punch in the smell department. It has tons of fruity elements including grapes, raisins, and other dark fruits. Lots of yeasty esters. There is a subtle hint of hops though it sits in the background.
The mouthfeel is the first thing I notice here, it is not super carbonated, instead more of a barleywine type mouthfeel, interesting. It has a definite vinous/grapey vibe going through it along with raisin. It also has a large sweetness that also carries herbal hops.
It is a solid pale ale, a somewhat unique one that has a bit different drinkability and mouthfeel characteristic than your standard Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
