Sweet and shy aroma for a beautiful beer (lacks just a bit of foam for the 5). Strong taste before the alcohol wave. It wasn’t tested in the official glass.

Belle couleur ambrée. On goûte l’alcool et le malt. amertume légère. Bière classique sans originalité mais qui passe bien.

Allright: the glass is cool, that’s for sure. But that’s pretty much it. For the rest I would say a less than average amber beer, too high in alcohol for not that much taste. Great marketing, beer could be better.

Mindwarp (149) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Pours a brownish/dark gold color with a thick white head. Aroma of dark fruit, and there’s a sweetness to the aroma. Aroma is not strong. Taste follows the nose with the addition of a slight booziness, bready. The flavor doesn’t last long but is good. Overall pretty good but not worth the $17 4pk price...After letting this beer warm up some more I started to get the taste of banana which made this beer really good, still expensive though.

TrappistLove (15) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Very sophisticated glass. Idk how ppl say they taste a hint of banana, palate is way off. More like toasted hops flavor. Like all Trappist beer just plain smooth, natural, n delicious.

Draft. Amber in color and poured with a small head. Aroma is malty with caramel and banana flavors prominent up front. A little thickness on the tongue but not too bad.

Clear, amber color with quite high head (don’t last for a long time). Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, banana. Taste: average sweet, nice fruit flavours, medium carb and body, quite dry and warning alcoholic finish. Overall: good belgian beer.

W aromacie nuty likierowo-drożdżowe z lekkimi zacięciami owoców takich jak wiśnia, czy cytrusy. Piwo ciemnobursztynowe. Piana nietrwała, jednak lacing pozostaje. W smaku typowa drożdżowość dla Belgów, w/w likierowość i nuty owoców podbite alkoholem (coś a’la nalewka). Piwo bardzo bogate w smaku. Dla fanów mocnych i cierpkich trunków jak znalazł.
