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.

Poured from bottle, pale hazy gold with low head. Aroma light with notes of spices and herbs. Taste is wonderfully complex, full with notes of dried fruit, spices and honey, ending in sweet bitterness. Great beer!

Full of flavour. Smooth. A hint of bitterness in the finish. This is without doubt a memorable beer. A world classic.

fajry (680) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 20, 2014
Fľaša. Tmavšia zlatá farba, biela pena, rýchlo padla. Vôňa medu, citrusových plodov, jemne pikantnosť, korenie. V chuti sa najskôr mieša sladkosť medu, s citrusovými tónmi. Neskôr cítiť jemnú horkosť a kyselkavosť. Táto chuť trvá veľmi dlho. Telo má veľmi hutné, s vyššou nasýtenosťou. Cítiť dosť aj alkohol.

"looked fairly typical for the style...effervescent, yellow...foamed heavily upon oppening as well. the aroma was spicy and alcoholic, and the flavor was also spicy and a little astringent - it could be that it got a bit oxidized, but the dubble foamed too, and was just not as harsh in the nose or on the palate. champagne like body with a spicy yeast, dry finish. i’ve had better. weakest (least liked) beer of the night."

eduardovl (867) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.33l bottle poured in its own chalice. A: Pale yellow hazy color. Huge white fluffy head with good retention and many many lacing left. Many particles floating around and in bottom of the glass S: Complex. Very spicy and citrus. Orange zest, honey, vanilla, apples. Sweet with light notes of alcohol. Classic bready Belgian yeasts. Bubblegum! Sweet malts and flowery hops T: Complex as the nose. Very spicy. Sweet malts upfront followed by a stingy hops bitterness. BTW, wonderful bitterness. Fresh malts and citrus hops. Orange zest, vanilla and liquor. In overall, despite of the fruity and sweet upfront, its taste is quite dry and bitter. Just perfect M: Heavy creamy body and low carbonation. Dry bitter aftertaste and presence of alcohol O: A world class beer, no more, no less. Expected Trappist quality. Mandatory to beer lovers [ BA Review @ 1/19/2010 ]
