Pours a light amber, amazing aroma, citrus oranges then moves onto the flavours in the mouth, bready and quite hoppy with the slightest hint of sourness...finishes so long, very hoppy but watch out for the alcohol

Noy my usual style but I must concede the quality of this. The head is breathtaking. As it warms the aroma opens up and the depth is inspriring. Not a quaffer, but a quality drop.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
I hate that my first review is not a flattering one. I was disappointed. This was a tasty ale but there was nothing special about it. I expect more out of Trappist ales.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pale straw-colored body topped with a profuse, foamy white head.
Smell: The aroma is marked by citrus, green apples tartness, and candy sugar. Slight hints of the alcohol content peek through in the nose.
Taste: All at once, it’s sweet, citrusy, and spicy. Very much like a dry white wine. Wraps up with a rather pronounced alcohol finish full of yeasty notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body that is slightly watery with a fizzy cabonation.
Drinkability: A rather dispiriting experience. Sadly, this is one of my least favorite of the trappist beers.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, flowery bouquet and white wine character. Bright sticky palate. Slightly tangy malty taste with a clean finish. I wish more of the aspects evident in the aroma showed through in the taste, but they didn’t.
