Very dry taste, with a spicy touch, hints of hops and lemon in the aftertaste. A one of it’s kind.

Bottle. Golden/copper color. Humongous head, lacing. Excellent aroma of yeast, fruit, bread. Flavor is good but lacking something. Sweet, dry and biting. Might be overcarbed for my liking too.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Re-rate on 2/6/07. Bottle from 2/05. Pale orange-amber color, huge thick foamy head that stuck around forever and left lacing on the glass. Sweet floral aroma with malts, fresh fruits (apple, pineapple), hops, and pine needles. Flavors are initially sweet and malty with floral and citrus overtones, along with fresh fruits, and hops. But some strange, indescribable piney, leathery, musty, woody flavors also appear. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel, but the finish is dry and astringent. One of the more interesting and complex beers I’ve had. Glad I took the time to re-rate this one.

A citrus aroma of grapefruit and orange rises from superb and sustained head, which sits upon a transclucent orange liquid. The taste also has a citrus quality, and the carbonation gives a light but lively feeling in the mouth. The finish is bitter and clean.

One off the very-best Trappist beers. An orange/amber pour with a foamy head. The head disapates quickly into a foamy covering. Aroma raisiny fruits and hops. Tatse is fantastic, nice hops bitterness. Great Stuff !

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a wonderful orange and amber that at first appears somewhat brown once in the glass but fairly quickly develops a massive, solid and rocky head. Hops and yeast come forward mostly scentwise, with some clean but doughy malt. Flavor is fairly dry and attacking, but with some noticeable spice. There’s also a slight herbal taste to it. Overall, an excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brownish amber with a substantial frothy head. Aromas of bubble gum, plum, yeast, cloves and licorice are a treat. Flavors are heavy on cloves and plums with yeasty grain, anise and caramel lurking in the shadows. Nicely blended, but a bit of a thinner mouthfeel than expected... may improve with age.
