COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

Very malty aroma with roasty and raisiny overtones, slight caramel and a whiff of alcohol. Very dark brown with a frothy, mostly lasting tan head and lots of fine carbonation apparent in the glass. Complex flavor of malt, raisin, slight sourness and mixture of hop and burnt roast bitterness. Aftertaste is mainly of bitterness, sourness and alcohol. Medium carbonation, medium-light body with a fairly quick finish but a lingering aftertaste.

Halfway thru the initial pour, I had already given it a 5 for appearance: beautiful, large, off white head over a cloudy, mahogany colored body. Yeasty, dried fruit, lightly spiced aroma. Compex mouthfeel added to the enjoyment, with tastes that incorporated spices, a range of fruits, some sourness, some bitterness, and some tartness. Alas, the end came too soon.

Sparkling mouthfeel and complex fruity aroma. Nicely balanced between the rich sweet malt and the bitter fruit flavors.

(Bottle). The bar where I drank this had very dim lighting, so about the color: Dark. Had a nice, sturdy 1 cm head. But it’s too carbonated in my opinion. It takes away some of the flavor.
