from Au Trappiste - light gusher; cloudy brown beer under a giant beige foamy head; piney and woody aroma, light earthy and malty; overcarbonated, astringent and solidly bitter; quite dry resiney, piney and woody aftertaste with notes of marzipan, herbs and spices - the excessive carbonation is a bit ruining this one fiulijn (24553) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015

Gushing bottle. Dark brown color, huge frothy head. Chocolatey beer with a huge amount of spruce tips, resiny, artificial. Not good.
Bottle at Trappist biere Cafe bern. Pours dark opaque brown w foamy head. Aroma is a bit sour earthy with pine and spruce. Palate is heavy full bodied. Taste is strong pine and spruce balanced by the caramel malt.
Great but not sure I could drink more than 1 in a sitting.

Brown color with huuuge beige head. Overfoaming immediately. Nice lacing soon. Very ethereal smell, like forest oils, resin. Forest forest forest (well, what do you expect when it’s brewed with spruces). Taste is more oily ethereal forest feeling, gingery. Earthy finish. Very full-bodied, it also tastes very strong. Fine perlage. This is very interesting, but I’m not sure if I really like it. Nonetheless, well-brewed. I guess this would be a fine brew for sipping after a long hike.
