3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml. For my 600th rating I chose to drink this Trappist. I had to use my teeth to open it. It poured brown liquid with almost no head. There are some bits floating inside. Nose : fruity nose with tart and cooked cherries. Some wood and vanilla. Sip : medium body with low carbonation, oily texture. It strikes with sweet cherry and vanilla tart aromas. It develops more sweet and sour but finer notes of fruits and wood elements. The end is going more into dry wood and spices and sour fruits. The sweetness in this beer is strong but really well balanced and the beer hides well the alcohol content. Quite tasty.
