3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Monk’s Kettle in San Francisco. A bit expensive but hey, a new trappist beer, gotta try it. Pours a cloudy orangish-copper color with a medium-sized creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, banana bread, dark fruits, mild funk, and yeast. Flavor is somewhat sweet with banana, Belgian yeast, caramel, spices, and dates. Medium-bodied and smooth with a fairly dry finish.

Thanks to Redlight for the pour. Cloudy brown pour. Nose of banana, brad and citrus. Dryer body than I expected, spicey yeast and smooth malt. Good brew.

poured brown with a decent head that faded rather quickly to give decent lacing. smelled like grape candy mixed with a belgian white. taste is like a sweet belgian white with a little alcohol aftertaste.

Draft- Chef Paul’s. Going against the grain on this one....Tulip glass, caramel brown, no head, and surprisingly no aroma. Taste is a bit sweet early on, but turns bitter quickly and then fades just as fast. Thin palate. Have to say I’m disappointed in this one, lacked body, slightly thin, no finish or definition.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large fluffy head of fine bubbles. Rocky on top with light carbonation. Fruity and spicy aroma with some bananas, yeast and nutmeg. Color is a hazy dark mahagony brown. Light and crisp flavor with more bananas, bready malts and spices. Bit dry with a light bitterness. Finishes dry and fruity with lingering spices. An enjoyable brew.

Fruity nose, bananas, apples, light citrus, starfruit with bready malts in the aroma. Pour golden amber with a thin white head. Very smooth, light, bread and sweet malts, spicy yeast notes, with a very dry finish. Great beer!

The aroma is fruity, yeasty, malt, and a touch of hay and funk. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a good beer.

Many thanks to Marcus for sharing this Trappist ale. And in appropriate glassware. Pours a dark aged honey with a pretty large beige head. Rich aromas of cooked medium dark fruits - like fig or date. A lighty sweet smell with mysterious spice. Nutmeg? Medium body with medium carbonation. Flavor is like a spiced up Tilburg Brown Ale, but more intense. Really good.
