Had this sitting in my frig for a while now and I was waiting for a good reason to open it up. My reason..........Monday. What better cure for the Monday blues than a Trappist ale? Pours a murky brownish-red with a thick fluffy tan head. Aroma is slightly more subdued that I was expecting. Hints of bitter fruits, molasses, apricot, banana, and a trace of alcohol. Flavor is akin to the aroma. Not in your face, but coats your palate in a pleasant array of flavors. Raisin, caramelized brown sugar, slight hop bitterness, and just the right amount of warmth from the alcohol. Feels very soft on the palate. Overall a very easy to drink, pleasant beer. I prefer the Rochefort 6 but this one still makes a solid appearance.

A- Pours a murky brown hue with a huge, chunky, 2.5 finger beige head. S- Slightly yeasty, hints of chocolate T- Chocolate, sweet pear, cherry, slight hop bitterness. M- Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. D- Very drinkable. The high carbonation detracts a little for me but i’m sure it is good with some age on it.

ShivanDragon (1251) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
caramelbruin, helder met schuimige kaki kraag. redelijk kleverig aroma van redelijke caramel, gist, moutig, zoet, smaken zijn redelijk kandij suikerzoet, zwak bitter, zwak fruitig van oa donkere en overrijpe fruiten (pruim/banaan en rozijn), medium tot volle body, romig in de mond, lage co2, en een zoete afdronk. zachte en gladde maar goede abdij tripel !

Bue en bouteille de 33CL. Couleur ambrée foncée. Bonne dans l’ensemble même si peu d’élément se distinguent.

freretoc (436) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, acheté en Belgique j’avoue que j’en avais jamais vu en France, couleur brune mousse blanche très peu de tenue, une attaque assez intense sur le grillée et le sucre, très honnête et intéressante à redéguster
