3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Expiration date: 01/09/2013.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, lots of carbonation visible, large white stable head.
Nose: yeast, very fruity, apples, little like the american cookies but without the chocolate.
Taste: very fruity start, bitter to little oxidated finish. Could it already be to old? Though a very refreshing beer in total. How can this contain as much alcohol as a regular pilsener? A lot more taste in total!
Maybe a little to dry, but very fruity and light drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle kindly provided by BelgBeerGeek. Not quite sure how old this bottle is, but it’definitely old! The pour on this one is near clear golden, and it has a massive everlasting and heavy fluffy just off-white head. It smells of honey, flowers, sweet dishwasher dispenser, thin red currants, some gooseberries and hints of old cellar. Quite nice, and you notice that it has a few years on its bottom this. The taste is heavy cellared and oxidized, but still quite drinkable. I get a light oily mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. The taste has a nice bitterness, lots of cellar tones, some clear wet cat and dry cardboard before it ends mild floral. Not a flavor bomb, but a damn interesting one to have tried. Thanks Vinc! 04.08.2012

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Bieresgourmet webshop. Been looking forward to this little "rarity" of a beer, brewed for the brethren of the monastery and occasionally sold to third parties - like me. :-) Pours a pale yellow (pale lager-like) body into my Westmalle chalice glass, with a big, short-lived white head on top. Nose is pale malts, grassy hops, heather and hints of straw. A bit faint. Taste is very dry, grassy straw notes, pale malts and hints of herbs, with a rather sharp, bitter dry finish. Body is light, carbonation is rather frisky. I’d say this tastes almost exactly like I had expected: a very dry pilsener fermented with Belgian monastic yeast instead of the regular lager strains. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s pretty decent but if this is all the monks get to drink, I ain’t taking on a chastity vow any time soon. :-P
