Color amber orange and high turbidity. Your Cream is beige clear, large, reasonably persistence. Mark the sides of the cup with a cream lace. The aroma is sweet, with citrus notes of fruit coming Belgian yeast and mix with malts, cookies, cherries, plums, peaches and yeast perfumes. The flavor has a strong presence of malts, which merge and complete a velvety and soft profile with notes of cherries, peaches, some sweet spices, nuts. Incidentally, this sweet has a clear tendency to balance the employee hops, but thanks to high carbonation makes very dry and very drinkable beverage in a clear favoring by alcoholic strength is not as high. Makes quite rich and smooth taste. It has high and medium carbonation body. Net silky with perfectly inserted alcohol, gently creamy finish. The aftertaste is clean and dry. In conclusion, I would say it is a younger sister of a Chimay, with a less intense body and more carbonation. It reminded me a Chimay Rouge, and my guess is probably the French must have used some of the Belgian yeast house, but is not as complex and complete as Chimay concerned. And has no end so pleasant in the mouth as one Chimay Rouge. No doubt ma good Trappist!

Cybercat (3878) - Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours hazy honey-amber with a thick and rather persistent cream-buff head. Malty aroma has a sweet and somewhat tart fruity overtone, pear plus a little apple. Flavor starts with a malty core and then adds apple, pear, yeast, and hints of honey and hops; sweetness nicely balances subtle bitterness and sourness. Texture is fairly firm and smooth, and rather fizzy. The cat’s meow.

solidfunk (4981) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 19, 2015
Some florals and a little booze in this. Pours cloudy maroon without much head or lacing. Light sweet finish. Not up to the standards of most of the other Trappists.

Amberkleurig met stevige schuimkraag, hoppig, licht bittertje, klein zuurtje. Koud uit de koelkast het lekkerst.

Bottle. Murky amber color with generous light brown foam head. Aroma is strong and resembles the fruitiness from wine. It is a nice blend of blue grapes, molasses / maple syrup, sour apples, freshly baked bread, and dried apricots. On the verge of smelling fabricated. Taste is interesting: you get the sour touch of white wine mixed with a touch of rose hip, dried apricots, dried prune, brown sugar. Relatively neutral aftertaste. It reminds of Moederoverste, which I prefer. Nonetheless, this is an interesting addition to the Trappist lineup.

Pours murky caramel. Head reduces to a solid 3mm tight white. Fair amount of lacing on the glass. A generally brighter-fruit aroma than many Trappists (if you will...). Cherry, white grapeskin, Belgian crabapples. Taste is peach fuzz, light rum and some sweet spice and nuts. Mouthfeel is delicately drinkable, yet with full flavour. Carries the sweeter tastes across very well. Actually, not a bad addition to the Trappist range if you want to call it as such. Certainly surpasses the output of Stift Engelszell and Achel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
