Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a huge, white head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, yeast, a bit of fruit and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily text. and lively carb. A quite plane Belgian style beer.

Amber color beer with small white head. Aroma of fruits, raisins ... Tastes fruity, malty ... Aftertaste is warm, yeasty with bit too much alcohol. Note my favorite trappist.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Very nice crisp and slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with hints of an orange tint and a peach highlight, all with a one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, pit fruits, raisins, figs, pears, plums and yeast - very nice throughout. Medium-bodied; Nice yeastie flavour up front with a good subdued pit fruit and raisin sweetness with a little depth of malt on the backend. Aftertaste shows some earth and nuts, a bit of alcohol warmth and the yeast that dominates throughout. Overall, a nice trappist beer that I had never seen before, but of course - loved to see it here in Belgium! I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased from De HopDuvel in Gent, Belgium on 16-August-2013 for €2,50 sampled in my hotel room here across the border in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg on 18-August-2013.

For a trappist that does one beer, this is really nice. They could get wound around the spokes in doing other beers but they do one. With that said, this is a really nice beer. It has a lovely amber color that is a bit hazy with the yeast in it. Sweet to the nose but with some spice and some aged hops (another term for old hops). Tastes sweet again with spice, fruit and some zing at the end. I would put this beer in my fridge to have every now and then as it is pretty solid. This beer also has closed the door for me to if there are any good French beers as it was kind of a thought of mine 6-7 years ago as to if there were any.

shared bottle. pours a light brown color with a nice big head, with some good carbonation. the aroma is a bit strange. some hints of caramel, some fruit notes, yeast, and a small amount of malts. taste is a bit to sweet for me. nice to try it do.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske fra Tofts Vinhandel på Islands brygge, siste kvelden på hytta: uklar orange farve. Storboblet skum som legger seg pent til ro. Aroma av daggammelt plenklipp. Besk, litt syrlig smak som ikke er umiddelbart tiltalende, men vinner seg ettersom innholdet i glasset minker. Hva er grunnen til at Chimay brygger dette, som markedsføres som trappistøl, uten å vedkjenne seg farsskapet på etiketten?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes. Bidy is hazy amber.
Aroma contains light malts (light bread, hay, molasses), moderate hops (herbs, citrus fruits), light yeasts(dough, barnyard) and also grape, raisin, red or forest fruits, honey and spices.
Flavor starts off light acidic, then bitter where later on light sweetness is added and the finish is bitter (a bit dry) and light acidic.
Body is medium with creamy texture and lively carbonation.
Not bad, but it misses the complexity and subtleties of the other trappist beers.

Mooie caramelbruine kleur met een volle kraag. Zoete geur van fruit en caramel. Fruitige zoete smaak met een alcohol nasmaak. Niet zo bijzonder, maar ook niet slecht.
