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.

Poured a beautiful rich brown with a full, slightly creamy head. Starts strong on the palate and then softens with compex flavors and a hoppy, long lasting finish. Great dubbel.

Poured a very dark brown with a nice sized off white head. Fruity, raisiny, malty aroma. Flavor was sweet, (dark fruit) and smooth with the alcohol coming through in the finish. Once again, a new style for me, but very good.

Cola-like notes dominate the aroma. Almost root beer like, with undertones of overripe bananas. The mouthfeel is sharp and prickly, to the point that I can’t fully enjoy the complexity of the body. What I can taste is good - dark fruit, plum, fig - but the mouthfeel ruins this brew for me. Hopefully I just got an overcarbonated bottle...

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I have only managed to have this one a couple of times over the years. Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark chestnut color with a small tan head. The aroma reminds me faintly of root beer. The flavor is light malts and a hint of ripe fruit. There is a hint of a sour tang and a fairly bland finish.

Drunk from a Westmalle goblet. Pours reddish-brown with a large, rocky head that recedes to a lovely film-like layer of bubbles that sticks around for the whole show. Aroma of figs, raisins, and candi sugar. Swirling releases some phenolic notes. Candi sugar and dark fruits turn to an interesting, for lack of a better word, perfumey flavor. Dry finish, with a pleasant aftertaste that stays with you.

Dark honey brown color with copious head. Delicious yeasty malt aroma. Up front it’s all creamy malts, midway though you get a hop kick and then it settles into a lingering cocoa toffe flavor. Beer malted milkshake! Beats it’s spunkier sibling the Tripel flavorwise by a long shot.

Okay, I like this beer. Very nice rasin/prune/plum aromas and flavors. Very full mouthfeel and alcohol is noticable in the finish. Dark borwn with ruby tints. Pours from the bottle with a huge creamy head. Lace all the way down the glass. Very nice beer

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Poured a dark brown with thick head that dissipated quickly. Had a nice raisin/grape with spices aroma to it. Flavor wasn’t as strong as the smell indicated, but was still good. Went down very smooth.

Pours a dark brown with a frothy off-white head. Hints of candied apples, dried fruits and spices. Very smooth and creamy aftertaste.

This is grape soda for adults. It smells like grape soda-- that is the first thing I noticed upon pouring this into my goblet. It tastes like grape soda with an almost indescribable mouthfeel-- very fizzy and lively, and almost evaporative. Strange. The alcohol presence is also here, seemingly great for only 7%. A very interesting brew, indeed. I like it!
