Pours cloudy copper color with white creamy head. Aroma is fruity malt with yeast and cloves. Creamy mouthfeel. Dry malty grain start with some fruity notes, followed by earthy yeastiness and finishing with citrus and cloves. Quality brew you would expect from a Trappist Product.

Bottle into tulip. Hazy orange/copper. Banana, clove, cinnamon studded orange nose. A bit on the cold side, tastes kind of like a hefe and ale blend, with south what and banana of a hefe with the hops of an ale. Finished a touch bitter.

Slight gusher. Hazy orange pour with a rocky white head. Aroma was clove and some banana, white pepper. Flavors were yeasty with notes of orange, bubblegum and earthy malts. Lively carbonation. Overall and pretty straightforward, well executed Belgian golden ale. Refreshing.

Light, rich foamy head. Subtle citrus notes. Not bad for the first American Trappist. I believe this is the Westvleteren 4 recipe.
