A nice light Trappist. Similar to the other 'brothers only' Trappist, it's light, nice spices, some hops and easy to drink.

0,33 l bottle. Pours dark straw yellow with big frothy dissipating off white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, coriander, orange peel and light banana. Body is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is light, on the watery side, texture is thin and carbonation lively. Finish is long, starts with coriander, some orange peel and medium bitterness that lingers for a while. Aroma is very nicely balanced between malts and spices, by far the best part of this beer for me.

Oat, pear, and brown sugar nose. Clear amber, thick head, good lace. Pear, with light spicy phenols. Light body, easy carbonation.

biilz (280) - SPAIN - JAN 12, 2018
Аромат шикарен, немного кориандра. цитруса и пшеницы. Пиво весьма хорошо пенится, мутное, цвет темно желтый. На вкус удивительно напоминает Витбир. Чувствуется пшеница, много дрожжей, цветочные и цитрусовые нотки, а также мед в оттенке. Напиток слегка водянистый. Вкусное пиво, но слегка странно это называют его Бельгийским элем.

carlom (119) - ITALY - JAN 11, 2018
Colore dorato, schiuma media poco persistente. Aromi di malto e mandorle. Al palato note citriche e malto. Corpo leggero e carbonazione elevata, finale leggermente secco. Una birra molto beverina, che dopo i primi sorsi perde spessore.

Refreshing, hints of wheat, yeast, banana and some sweetness. Not as complex as most of the range but an enjoyable beer.

yerffoeg (83) - Dinant, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2017 Une belle blonde dorée, parfumée à souhait, un peu comme une blanche. Elle peut facilement se boire au quotidien, et ce sans risquer l'écoeurement. Et dire que ces facétieux moines la gardaient tout un temps pour eux... je les comprends.

Kita (2304) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 Bottle, 0.33l. Aroma is yeasty, bready and grassy. Pours cloudy amber color with thin soapy off-white head, floating yeast particles and average sparkling appearance. Taste starts with medium sweet caramel and bready, following is yeasty, peppery and a bit dusty, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is mild to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate. Simple and very tasty...
