Pours a light orangey golden with a generous white head. Clean light malt and spices on the nose. Light bodied in the mouth with delicate ginger and some vanilla notes. Little trace of alcohol, some sweetness. Good.

Holmen2 (648) - NORWAY - FEB 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Cloudy orange. Large and persistent white head and good lacing.Wonderful aroma of fine hops, grass, tropical fruits and spices. Similarly complex and balanced fruity taste and aftertaste, highly influenced by Belgian yeast. Lively carbonation. An absolutely superb Belgian ale to be enjoyed all year.

Grzesiek79 (3114) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Przyjemny zapach swiezego arbuza melona i ananasa. W smaku slodowosc z biszkoptem, marmolada i zbozowe wrazenia. Smak tresciwy sycacy, lekko gryzacy w jezyk, przyprawowy. Kolendra i pieprz. Finisz cieply i rozgrzewajacy. Slodki pozostawia posmak. Wszystko elegandzko skomponowane. Piwo z imponujaca piana, kapsel zdjety z sykiem. Trwala puszysta piana i spora ilosc drozdzy po wtornej fermentacji. Doskonala kompozycja na swieta z autentycznego browaru klasztornego. Polecam

RW80 (533) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
330ml bottle, Appearance orange hazy with amassive foamy head which leaves quite some lacing Aroma: Faint spices, yeast and alcohol, some artificial chemical notes which I can not place. Taste:coriander, coriander, wheat malt and some butter and apricot jam Finish is spicey with alcohol. thin body,slightly higher then medium carbonation. Not your typical christmas beer, more a regulare Belgian strong ale.
