Had in a flight with the same base beer but different yeast strains at the brewery. The Trappist yeast presented spicy with traditional Belgian characteristics. Nice sweet malts with a pronounced spicy finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a thick white head. The nose is less spicy than the other strains, nice bits of dark fruit, some tropical, Belgian candy sugar, and beets. The taste is high sweet and low bitter with a more sweet finish. The texture is crisp and clean, body is medium and finish is long.

A light spice to the aroma. The spice on this one is nearer to the end with a plainer body. Yet it has the same great tingly finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Bruery. Clear golden pour, with a white head. Sweet malt, banana, pear, nice fruity esters, ground pepper, candy sugar, and light clove spice. One of the better ones, this had a little more "pop" to it and less sweetness (not as dry as the saison though).
