4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 Astonishingly floral Belgian superbeer. We loved this beer and have always. Deep orange and golden gem with a three-fingered head that lasted nicely through the tasting from bottle. Architecturally sound Trappist ale for enthusiasts of great worldly brews! OMG!

340 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a fruity noise - excellent head. Very dry, fruity body with a clean finish. Beautifully balanced beer.

Very strong flowery aromas, I almost want to say I smelled lavandar. A little too dry for my liking and not as complex as some of the other trappists.

Heavy pouring amber with quite a bit of visible debris floating throughout. Leaned toward an abby tripple in flavor. Interesting taste but not the smoothest palate.

Wow, this is a good one! Pours brown and hazy. Very yeasty and very bubbly, maybe even too much so. The taste is full of lovely bitterness along with sugary caramell and above all orange (peel). The stingy alcohol that comes in the aftertaste made my Orval taste like orange liqour candy.

Nice golden glow with a massive white head. An impressive look with a good fruity and slight citrus nose. Some nice mild sweetness and hop bitterness. Not the deep rich caramel sugary sweetness and depth as other trappist ales.

I rather liked it. Fairly fruity, but it was no Kwak. It had some nice dryness to it, too.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip glass, cloudy orangish amber with a giant beige head. The aroma was of yeast, sour apples and citrus. The taste was dominated by hops with notes of sour apple. Very dry with a slight bitterness. Well carbonated with an earthy almost barnyard nose. An interesting brew, but not quite to my taste.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 Mighty fine beer and drinkable at 6.2 -- it lacks the generic malted sugar qualities in many Belgian singles. Should appeal to many American drinkers with its sturdy hop nose, but may turn more off with its yeasty aftertaste. Interesting and highly unique, but you all know that by now.
