Pours a nice slightly dark copper color with an inch and a half of head that reduces to a centimeter. Very present malt with some spice finish. Nice on its own but doesn’t stand up to other trappists.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - 330ml. Cloudy chestnut body with a good off-white pillowy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with grassy and bready hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its malty/hoppy taste carries herbal, yeasty, grassy, abd vegetables notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Rather ordinary.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very much a middle of the road beer. It has a lot of the "features" of a beer of its kind, but they are all rather subdued and un-focused. Apparently a new trappist brewer from France (brewed at Chimay for now), this is the most interesting thing about this.

Rötlich-bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Antrunk fruchtig, aber recht wässrig. In der Rezenz frisch und spirtzig. Im Nachtrunk kommt zwar etwas Bitterkeit durch, aber nicht zu aufdringlich. Wenn der Antrunk besser wäre, hätte das Bier Bestnoten verdient gehabt, so leider nicht ganz.
