COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 Bottle says best before October 06 2013 thus it was one year old. Deep orange hazy gold with a thick puffy white lasting head. Smells full of citrus fruit and mango, malt and a deep cookie under all that alcohol. I hope with some more ageing that will fade. Some spices, like ginger and hay. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of malt and spice with alcohol tummy warming. A nice earthiness makes it more of a sipping experience. Apples, raisin, some lemon.The finish is dry with some hops lingering. Nice and complex. Delicious after it aged. Want more.

Does drink every bit as strong as its ABV suggest. Spicy on the tip of the tongue from alcohol strength. Bottle conditioned so keep upright if you’re not a yeast eater. Distinctively Belgian.

It pours pale, with a soft balanced white head which remains for long. Also, it smells citric and sweet, with a nice soft taste. Good trappist.

Ibeer with a fruity smell and a beautiful, nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruit aroma. An exceptional beer, with lots of finesse and elegance. And with a lovely long finish.

AlfredoGarcia (18) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 25, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Smell of lemon and honey (8/10), deep golden colour with LOT of foam (4/5), Strong taste, bitter (8/10), strong body, with a bitter creamy ending (4/5). Even if the whole story about the Trappists beers can probably affect my judgment, it is a fantastic beer, those monks know what they’re doing.

jspronck (116) - BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2015
Cloudy golden color with tall white head, aromas of fruit (banana) and spices. In mouth, creamy feel, taste of fruit and pepper. The alcohol is also dominant in mouth. Good beer.

Bardzo przyjemny s?odowo kwiatowy aromat. Mocno nagazowane co przykrywa alkohol. Po ogrzaniu do g?osu dochodz? nuty typowo belgijskie.

felip989 (30) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 17, 2015
Served in a trappist glass. Yellow with a big persistent white head. Aroma is yeast, syrup, bubblegum, bananas, peaches and apricot. Taste is yeast, strong alcohol presence, peaches, bananas, bubblegum and bread. Sweet, spicy and alcoholic finish, with a strange resinous bitterness. I expected more for this one...
