Bottle split on the train to Twickers, big thanks to Fergus for bringing me this one, 28/12/13. Clear pale golden with a good sized off white head (bottle cam !). Nose is citrus fruit, light spice, pale malts, bread dough. Taste comprises lemon rind, hay, corriander, toasty malt notes, bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying finale with light spice. Ok easy drinking number.

Erzengel (7403) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2013
Sehr hellgelbe Farbe, blumig-hopfiger Geruch. Total frisch-grasig! Der Antrunk ist frisch, sehr schön hopfenblumig, dabei leicht trocken. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier etwas flach, dabei aber angenehm herb und schön hopfenblumig. Der Nachgeschmack ist toll herb-aromatisch, ganz leicht süßlich-malzig und sehr trocken. Ganz leicht weich.
--> Interessantes und sehr leckeres helles Bier! Test vom 10.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,11,12,12 - 11,70

Bottle 33 cl. Pours light golden color with a small white head. Fresh, hoppy aroma very untypical for Belgian Ale. The flavor is very fresh (citrus), light and quite watery. Short aftertaste.

MrW (532) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2013
33cl bottle. Nose had hay, corn, grass, a bit citric. Pours clear yellow blond, white foamy head, small sparkling. Taste had hay, citric as well, but weak taste. Watery, soft bitter finish. Disappointing for La Trappe, I usually like them more.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 1, 2013
330ml bottle. Pale, straw coloured gold, cloudy, totally opaque, nice frothy white head, medium lasting. Nose has a little citrus, a little spice, coriander notes, zest and pithy notes, nice. Flavour falls a bit flat, some of the aromas carry through to the flavour ok, but lack of carbonation lets it down a little. Light, pretty watery body. Finish is ok too, same flavours follow all the way through. Bottle may not have been in the best condition.

Was not sure what to expect from it, and after tasting it I still don’t know if I should define this as a blond beer. Perhaps something between pilsner and blonde. Its a little bit sweeter than pilsener but has quite some bitterness to it. Quite unique, but I like it.

Goudkleur, beetje bleekjes. Mooie laag schuim, veel koolzuur. Ruikt lekker, fris. Smaak valt tegen, nogal vlak. Geen bitter, geen zuurtje, niets.

Maakun (3425) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2013 Slightly cloudy, very pale straw. Yeasty, lemon, grassy, almost witbier. Nice malts, fresh dough. Taste is lightly sweet with nice bitter finish. Mouth is thin, a bit watery. Overall: smells very nice, if it had more body it would live up more to what the smell promises.

All right, time for the full La Trappe tasting, starting with Puur. Visited the brewery in August after Amsterdam trip. Great place with beautiful biergarten on the abbey grounds. Picked up a souvenir: 8-pack reusable canvas bottle carrier with one bottle of every La Trappe brand. So, Puur is a nice easy-to-drink ale with an unexpected hoppiness (for a Belgian-style, or at least Trappist, since this is actually made in the Netherlands). Maybe a bit on the watery side, but kind of a nice change of pace from the Trappist norms.
