Gotta love the bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/amber with a white head. Aromas of yeast, dried fruit, candy sugar, and malt. Nice light mouthfeel while maintaining a wonderful amount of flavor and complexity. Very easy to drink. The 10% abv is well hidden too.

Ceramic type bottle with grolsch style lid. Pours a cloudy yellow/tan color with a very large, lasting head and sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity, spicy, with clove and banana, citrus, a little hops and some biscuit malt. Flavor is tasty, it’s got tons of spiciness, with clove, coriander, pepper notes, banana and bubblegum, and some funk. Body is pretty thick with plenty of carbonation and slightly noticeable EtOH. Overall it’s tasty. A nice Belgian Strong Pale that fits the style nicely.

Triple with nice spice taste. Very easy to drink. Not too complex. I would rather this be in a 6 pack given the simplicity of this Belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

We were so excited to find this amazing ceramic bottle and a beer inside with such a cool background. This beer is brewed once a year by monks! Sadly, we were not happy with the flavor, and a few weeks after opening the re-closeable lid, half a bottle of this beer is still in our fridge. I think we’re going to pour it down the drain.
