thanks Tony @ OTH for the share.
pours cloudy golden, white head.
aroma,f ruity, clove, spices, light bread, definitely has the St Feuillien signature along with a more hopped up American style.
flavors, champagne yeast? mild/thick malt presence, fizzy carbonation with ample citrus. Belgian yeast with light hops adding for a nice bitter palate. Spices, cloves?, dry hopping is on the light side, rye adds some spiciness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ The Trappist, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of really strong spices, nutmeg and rosebud, not much else. Flavour of strong spices, rosebud, yeast, lemon zest, grass and weak maltiness. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a warming spicy finish. Way too spicy as it runs over pretty much everything.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon peel, pepper, wintergreen, alcohol.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Nicely aromatic and pleasantly balanced (dry, not syrupy sweet). Nice tangy yeast. It doesn’t excite me, but for a big spiced Belgian golden, it’s quite enjoyable. Less alcohol would have been preferable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked and baled. Pours a brilliant pale gold with a towering, surging, frothy platinum blonde head. Nice spicy nose--showing some dark roasting spices and some orange peel. Maybe cardamom. Fizzy crisp light body. Bright lemon and orange along with bitey spices on the mid-palate, all on top of a toasty malt base. Crisp finish. Very refreshing and pleasant, especially given the alcohol...which does not show at all.
