Inspired by traditional refectory ales brewed by monks for the monks’ table, Spencer is a full-bodied, golden-hued Trappist ale with fruit accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, is home to a community of Trappist monks and the first American Trappist brewery. Following the Benedictine tradition of ora et labor (prayer and work), the monks pursue a simple life of contemplative prayer, a manual labor and hospitality. The brewery helps support the monks and their charitable outreach.

Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Cheap. This one is probably past it’s prime, but you wouldn’t know it as it still presents itself really well. It pours an orange gold color with a tall, fizzy off white head. The aroma has toasted malt, some fruity plum and banana with hints of clove spiciness. Almost seems like a hefeweizen with more complex fruity esters. The flavor has lots of dried fruit and clove. Pear, plum, a little baked apple, cinnamon and clove. It has a dense, yet frothy mouthfeel. High carbonation. Moderate earthy bitterness. Pretty nice. Very solid.

Cette Spencer est une bière corsée à la robe blonde cuivrée sur laquelle trône un col de mousse épais et mousseux. Du verre, s’exhalent des parfums familiers, des accents fruités masqués par un voile de levure typiquement belge. La bouche est élégante et le corps dense nappe le palais de saveurs complexes évoquant les fleurs blanches, les abricots secs, la banane, le miel, le caramel... La finale sèche sur la levure et légèrement amère vient prolonger la dégustation.

pioter (135) - POLAND - JUN 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 Ciemno złote, mętne. W zapachu typowo belgijsko. Mocno przyprawowo oraz drożdżowo, czuć banana i inne owoce, pszenica, zero alkoholu w zapachu. W ustach pełne ale nie zamulające. Nie czuć alkoholu. Wysoki wysycenie. W smaku ponownie przyprawowo, drożdźowo, chlebowo. Gdzieś tam majaczy goryczka, ale w sumie to brak.

TtV (401) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Bottle 33cl. Golden colour with a firm white head. Lots of carbonation when opening bottle, little in the glass. Sweet aroma with malts, honey, yeast and sugar hints. The taste is mildly sweet with a a lovely bitter undertone that grows in the aftertaste. Nice!
