3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank this after a knackering day at work, really needed a crappy lawnmowner beer just to down for some bog standard refreshment, but had only this; I’m glad I did as this was a treat that probably deserved more considered respect from me; in the five minutes it took to drink I noted burnt sugar, sweet citrus and characterful yeast aplenty; well-balanced and really enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bière plutôt décevante. On reste sur la arômes classiques des bières belges mais beaucoup moins bien équilibrés que chez les autres trappistes...
