Golden coloured, medium head, goes quickly down to 0.5-1cm. Smell is plain earthy, lightly spiced. A bit like a pilsner even... Taste in uninteresting. Watery, some yeast, spices, hops. Sweet-bitter. Not my beer, way to simple. Geokkjer (7643) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2010

33cl bottle at Yerba Buena in Rimini. A bit lite but good flavor. weak body for the style. Easy drinkable. jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 1, 2010
Beautiful, clear golden colour. A a bright white head about 7cm high.
On the nose, malt, but not a very good maltaroma. Freshly cut gras, maybe a hint of orange.
In the mouth, vibrant and foamy. A long and good aftertaste with maltflavour dominating, in this case a good maltflavour.
It´s light and spot on for it´s style.
It is however, alittle bit boring. I would have expected more aromas and flavours, in more layers.
If you want this "style" of Trappistbeer that´s lighter, Westmalles trappist (dubbel or tripel) is more complex.
