4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist Westmalle glass; from the fridge.
Good beer, with a nice deep aroma and taste, as well as a very good palate. The trappist yeast doesn’t overhelmed the taste, which is more like bitter-sweet.
Great beer !

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow with a few flakes of sediment floating around in suspension. Hint of orange. An inch of off-white head, moderate coarseness, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is gooey baker’s dough, light banana and apple, touch of sugar, and toasted scone. Body is medium-to-medium-light, slightly syrupy, Medium-heavy carbonation that fills the mouth like a big cotton ball. Flavor is white wheat, apple, hint of banana and blackberry. Hint of honey. Hint of lemon, light herbal brush on a hot day, and a medium-light leafy bitterness that actually lingers a surprising amount given that this is a Belgian style. Biscuit. Slight candy as well. A very nice Trappist. The aroma is delicious, the flavor very good. The body s bit syrupy and a carbonation which suffocates a bit. Biscuit flavors bloom as it warms. The finish is OK. Nice tripel. I wish it was a bit more crisp.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with an abundant foamy white head. Aroma is white bread/sourdough, cereal grain, banana, apricot candy, lemon, clove, green apple, and soft floral. Great fruity complexity. Taste is bread, a bit of cereal, bubblegum, yeast, medium bitterness, a bit floral, some fruit (soft stone fruit - apricot?), and some clove. Specific flavors of the fruitiness are more vague than in the aroma. Foamy, fizzy, mouth filling carbonation, medium body. Finishes dry.

Robe or, reflets ambrés. Nez puissant sur des notes de houblon, de levure, de malt et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque ample, très belle bulle crémeuse, et très longue finale droite et nette sur un belle amertume de houblon. Un bière d’une longueur impressionnante.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is the best of the Trappists beers that I’ve tried. It is very consistent. This amber brown mixture is generously heady and sparkling with just the right amount of fizz- not all punk-like but rather solid and mellow. I find the texture quite smooth and the taste lightly sweet with a medium hint of caramel. What is surprising it that the brew ebbs away from the other characteristics of Trappists beers with their certain presence of bitter hops. I appreciate that this brew is refreshing, and lovely in its essence. The slightly caramel and apricot taste on my tongue feels great.
