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.

330ml brown bottle. A careful pour yielded a very clear, golden hued beer with a small lacy, creamy white head. Yeast plays a big part in the aroma, floral hops are noticable, fruity with faint oranges. Creamy mouthfeel but effervescent. Flavour was bready and yeasty, with a nice burst of orangey hops in the middle. Long dry finish with a nice note of bitterness.

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 (17) - 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...
