Hazy mahogany brown with a thick white head. Aroma is honey, fruits and yeast with some hints of tobacco. Sweet in flavour with notes of peach and apricots. Some yeast is present here too. Thick, caramelly mouthfeel. Finishes off with a warming alcohol feel and some raisin.

Dark ruby colour. Huge white head, soon disappears. Easy drinking, alcohol is well disguised. Maybe a little lacking in taste, although the aroma of yeast and some summer fruits makes up for it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown color with ruby tints, floaties galore, massive foamy white head. Itís malty aroma breathes sour cherries, with wafts of bread baking. Smooth like other Trappists, but much thinner body than the 8 or 10. Sour at times, more cherries. Dry finish, relatively quick. Clearly well made, but overall a less interesting Trappist. Rating # 600.

White thick, fast diminishing head. Redbrown colour. Smells honey, yeast and out of date pale lager. Taste honey, yeast, vanilla, fruits, fudge and out of date Christian Firtal.

Thick hasy brown color, with an aroma of malt. The taste is mildly sweet and fruity. It is a beer that should be drank slowly to enjoy every thing about it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky chestnut colored body under a small off-white head. Quite alot of visible carbonation, and a light sediment in the bottle. Fruity and yeasty aroma with a touch of alcohol. Light notes of tobacco and grapes. Flavor is a little thin on the malt with alot of yeast, slightly sweet. Finish is short and lightly fruity. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Texture is soft. Overall, a decent enjoyable beer, but pretty stripped down when compared to itís bigger brothers.

11.2 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a big light tan head. Strong nose, spicy, dark fruits, a touch astringent. Lively mouthfeel, with flavors of raisin, caramel, yeasty bread. Gets fruitier as is warms a bit. Very nice!
