3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I can see why people like this beer - it’s easy to drink. It’s a good looking hazy orange with a large white head, and a musty-yeasty aroma with plenty of hops. When it comes to flavour I didn’t detect the nuances I was expecting. There was a slight fruitiness and a pleasant bitter hit, but I felt inclined to drink it quickly rather than savour the complex profundities as I do with other Trappist beers.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz brown bottle purchased at Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 6.9%. Bottled on 4/1/05 and opened on 12/3/05. Nice fruity aroma. Clear amber hued ale having a long-lasting white head with good lacing. Medium bodied that starts dry with dried fruit, musty and leather flavors. Some sharpness and sour notes. Finishes dry with slight malt aftertaste. A drinkable sour Belgium ale that is a definite acquired taste.

very interesting. very dry, alot lighter in taste than i expected. pours a copper color with a huge head, really big bubbles in the head, quite unique. aroma is also unique i cant quite put a fiunger on it, kinda yeasty. taste is light and alot more refreshing than i expected from this traditional belgian ale. floral hoppy taste with some grapefruit. very bubbly, not what i expected at all, seems more like a lite drinkable summer beer.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 This is beer, but I drank it at a not optimal temperature, it is hard to doit in Winter here, because the heathers are like at 25 degrees. Anyway. The colour is awesoma, and the aorma, alcoholic but just enough, and the after taste nice.

Pours a light gold with a HUGE white head. Aroma is bready & fruity. Taste is bready with a good dose of grapefruit. A little too carbonated for my taste. I’m not sure what all the hype is about.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Definitely aromatic, herbal, citrusy & effervescent. That said, a distinct nose. To mine a grapefruit yet musty odor. Fizzy on the palate and a rather dry unsatisfactory taste that mimics the nose. A light golden color. Not to my liking.

Cloudy golden color. Small ivory head. Light citrus smell. Sharp tang due to high carbonation initially, ending in a grapefruit taste. Very dry throughout.

Very interesting beer. Unique in aroma. Flowers and herbs/spices greet the nose. Palate is fizzy. Big head. Floavor is of a floral arrangement with clove. Slight bitter finish. one to try.

Bottle-Peut-être que c’est juste moi mais cette bière ne mérite pas son mérite. Sa trop grande présence d’alcool m’écoeure. Par contre, elle possède une belle apparence pleine de nuance et très mousseuse. Elle possède un très bo arrière-goût qui rappelle les noisettes.
