Pale cear gold-orange with puffy white carbonation. Aroma a bit yeasty with strong notes of fruit and spice, lemon. Dry hop. Taste is sweet with a good finish of herbal hop dryness, and shows apricot pear and gold raisin, some lemon. Some peppery and bubblegum phenolics.

Aroma: medium, banana bread. Light soft alcohol

Flavour: malt: bready, lingering. Yeast: med banana, lingering. Alcohol, high peppery, lingers. Hops: light, spicy.
Mouthfeel: medium warming, very high caronation, high carbonic sting. Medium-light body.
Overall: I expected more complexity. Good, but too much sting and warming.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Lys brun, uklar farget, lite karbonert med en tynn hvit skumtopp. Smaker hvete, karamell,frukt og gjær. Noe funk og sødme. En ganske god belgian ale

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured in my favorite Grimbergen’s chalice.
A: Beautiful amber color. A bit cloudy. Huge two fingers head which dissipates quite quickly leaving a bit of lacings
S: Sweet malts. Sweet bubblegum and a bit of yeasts in the end
T: Sweet malts is very evident, caramel and yeasts. Bitter end
M: Medium body and molasses. Medium carbonation
La Trappe, IMHO, is the "less good" Trappist. However, still a quite good beer.

Alcoholpercentage van 7,5%
Uitgeschonken in originele glas
Uiterlijk: amberkleurig met kleine schuimkraag
Aroma en smaak: zoetig, fruitig, klein bittertje
Conclusie: trappist bier van eigen bodem, de quadrupel en tripel vind ik persoonlijk beter, maar wel lekker

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Paid $5.25 for a 330 ml bottle from craft Beer Cellar, Portsmouth, NH. Served just slightly chilled. The color is a couldn’t amber that has slowly fading head on a slow canted pour into a Trappist glass.The aroma shows me some fruity yeast, with lots of toffee, and malty tones.
The flavor is starts with some spiced banana followed by clove and I hate to use it but ( bubblegum ). The texture is on the fuller side with some chewy yeast. No bitterness whatsoever with this being do all about by fruit, sugar and malt. Serviceable.

Beautiful amber but the foam does not persist. Caramel with some salt licorice, toffee, a bit of alcohol, very noticeable pepper. Long dry finish of dried fruit and salt licorice. Well crafted but not my style

"Very fruity, light and dark, with pronounced oaking and a long lasting dry and spicy sweet Belgian yeast aftertaste. Nice but not as good as we were expecting."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy deep amber body with a large, tan, creamy and very dense head that stays finger-thick for a long time before settling as a thick layer, and giving rise to lots of beautiful lacings. Malty, sweet and strong aroma of Belgian yeast, spices, dark berries, pale malts, sugar, marzipan and hints of dark dried fruits. Strong flavour of Belgian yeast, generic fruits, alcohol, sugar, and malty notes that tastes far lighter than the colour of the beer. Also faint traces of dark dried fruits. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate to light bitter. Close to full bodied, lively carbonation, pretty dry finish. A good one that shouldn’t be served too cold: it really opens up when the temperature reaches 13-14ºC.
