3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange golden color with a white layer. Decent intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a bit to rich carbonation. Malty, herbal, some banana, fruity and some spiced notes. Hmmmm the rich carbonation unfortunately destroys this beer totally. Would probably be quite nice with a proper carbonation.

83.6% foam being trying to be poured into a 16 ounce tumbler; beware of sly peddlers that sell ale they know is not yet ready to sell but in the freezer they sell it, anyway, to taste. (it musta been some ride from mass to colo, tho.)
but, once the foam settles, s’not too bad.

Bottle. The pour is a clear golden orange. The aroma is full of belgian malt. The taste is full bodied and refreshing. I'd put this beer against any other trappist beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gusher. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden body with a large, short-lived white head. Nose is banana, white sugar, caramel, raisins and hints of pale malts, figs and Norwegian brown cheese. Taste is pale malts, straw, banana, white sugar, caramel, brown cheese and hints of raisins, white pepper and figs. Medium body, dry finish, high carbonation. Interesting stuff; it has a lot of the yeast tones from the Rochefort strain while also having a saison-ish peppery touch, being brewed with mostly lighter malts. Pretty tasty as well. Good to see that the first American Trappist brewery comes up with a signature beer that kinda works out.
