COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Driven by a life of humble contemplation, Trappist Monks have quietly been rolling out barrels of rich, full flavoured ales for centuries. While the old world tradition of Trappist Ales continues to influence brewers around the world, a new world order has been bubbling away with bold aromatic US hops playing the headline act. Melding the old and the new worlds, we have introduced rich, sweet malt tones derived from select Belgian specialty malts and fruity Belgian yeast spiked with the addition of classic candied sugar together with the unmistakeable aromatics of new season US Cascade and Chinook hops. A thought provoking bitterness completes a hybrid ale that is contradictive in style - The Quiet American

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, - JUN 6, 2012
Draught Hazy orange body, holds a dense head. Nice pugency of aroma, plenty of citrusy/woody American hop with underlying toasty malts and subtle yeast derived notes of clove/pepper spice and pear esters. Luxurious sort of body; quite rich and chewy, subdued creamy carbonation, good length and balance. Sweet malts hit the palate up front, accentuating esters of ripe pear and apricot, hops cut through later with grass, pine and grapefruit. Finishes with a firm bitterness that is welcomed, and a smooth alcohol warmth down to the cockles. Very nice. Good combination of a Tripel and AIPA, really one of the best versions of a "Belgian IPA" i’ve tasted to date.

M_Sack (282) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2013
THE QUIET AMERICAN Colour: Bright gold Aroma: initial hop aroma followed by yeasty sweet notes of  banana and cloves.  Palate: Big mouthful of sweet caramel malt with hints of banana and clove continued from the nose.  A mid level of  bitterness then develops, which just keeps going and going but is beautifully  intertwined back into the malt sweetness.  Overall:  a fantastic beer unlike any Australian beer I’ve had.  In my mind more of a nod to Belgian style ales, but the American hops (cascade and chinook) are still present in the initial aroma and then the incredibly long bitter palate.

Bottle. Hazy gold body with a small white head. Aroma of American hops and dry spices (coriander seed). Complex taste of fruit (peaches); bread, spices and US hops. Medium bodied; just enough hops to balance the malty sweetness of the beer, but finishing with a slight sweetness.

jesperhammer (2647) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2012
27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Golden with off-white head. Tripel...? The fruity stuff is there, some peach and banana but not all that spicy. Finish is hoppy and bitter. High carbonation. Really delicious, I like it.

The average Aussie beer drinker will probably drink this straight from the fridge. If they do, it’s a nice American IPA, great hop aroma and enough bitterness to keep you coming for the next sip. If they take the time for this to reach a better temp the Belgian yeast characters really shine, making it a far more dynamic drink. Very enjoyable! Pity it’s getting hard to find.... 568ml bottle.
