solidfunk (5312) - 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

aroma smells light caramel, floral, orange peel, color is amber with frothy, white foam, not for too long, very high carbonation, lively, medium body with nice bitterness, after a while touch of kiwi and watermelon, creamy mouthfeel, rather short aftertaste

imdownthepub (11393) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Bottled, 330ml at Clichy’s Tavern, Pigalle, Paris. Clouded amber with white head. There is a distinct Belgian yeast note to this, fruity, bubble-gum sweet alongside a herby, slightly peppery note. The sweetness persists though, reducing the enjoyment for me. Ends up a fairly average beer.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Herbaceous, peppery nose. Pours a clear amber with a big fluffy head and a lot of fizz. Flavour is pleasingly dry and bitter with less of the underpinning sweetness and fruit you get from many trappists. If there was such a thing as a session BSA, this would be a contender for it. Nice.

martin00sr (1589) - Haderslev, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
Hazy amber, huge fluffy offwhite head. Fruity and spicy malt aroma, wet paper. Flavour is malty with sweet citrus, orange and fruity caramel.
