3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Julio’s release tasting. This has the typical Belgian flavor with hints of bananas and cloves. There as an additional kind of musty overtone that made this unique. I like the idea of this beer, but Belgian’s aren’t really my favorite style so I have a hard time judging this against others. It was decent overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark straw with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, wit notes of hops and flowers. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit and yeast, with bitter, hoppy notes and floral touches. Hoppy and citric aftertaste. Rich body. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Yeasty and spicy aroma. Freshly baked bread, cloves. Hazy dark golden colour. Big stable creamy white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Yeasty and spicy with a mild sweetness and a good alcohol level to balance. Seems a bit stronger than 6.5%, I think. A really good clove note, distinct yet mild. Reminds me of the first times I had Trappists.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange, murky, small head, gentle carbonation. A: sweet malts, marsipan, citrus, bit boozy and chemical. T: nice sweet fruity maltiness upfront with orange peel notes. Low carbonation. Moves towards a malty citrus bitterness with light hairspray note. Light banana and bread in finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a massive, but quickly-dissipating, foamy off-white head. Aroma is yeast, grass, clove, and spice. Taste is Trappist yeast, light citrus, and clove. Some pils malt. Spice in the finish. Slight acridness in the finish from the yeast. Minimal bitterness. Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. A little too watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mousse légère, couleur or. Odeur de malt, levure légère. Quelques notes d’orange. Bouche légère et alcool peu présent. Amertume légère. C’est bon, mais manque de profondeur.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flesje gedeeld in de Vlaamsche Reus. Mooi etiket, mooi glas. Troebel goudkleurig bier met een witte kraag. Romig bier met hints van honing, gist, fruit, graan en een mooi bittertje. Zacht en rijk maar niet heel bijzonder.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
GOod and enjoyable but I seriously doubt they have the legal rights to call it Trappist outside the USA considering the international treaties.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is malt, spicy yeast, ripe fruity notes, herbal notes, bit sugary. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Okay drinkable Belgian Ale, but not too special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like clove, bready malt, apricot, apple and some citrus peel. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some stone fruit, bubblegum and minerally flavors noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and coating, and is well carbonated. I think it’s an enjoyable brew, I was looking forward to trying this and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Worth a try if you’ve never had it before! $9.99 a bottle.
