3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle in hotel room - saddest ever tasting of a "Trappist" beer... in a paper cup. Yeast and banana come through in the aroma. Malty banana flavour, toffee, smooth to medium bodied. Nothing real fancy but very well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep caramel color ale, huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma: Belgian caramel malt with some sweet caramel notes and light fruity ester. Taste: a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability. One of the better trappist beers i have tried

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Appearance: Transparent golden brown, minimal carbonation, small fine beige head. Aroma: caramel, malt vanilla. Good, but nothing super complex. Palate: thick bodied, fizzy, creamy, slightly oily, slightly dry finish. Taste: Fairly savoury. No bitterness. Not bad, but not as complex as I’d hoped for.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color with nice off white head. Aroma is fresh, citrus, grapefruit, floral... quite refreshing. Let;s taste it.... it’s smooth, really nice body you can feel the alcohol but in a good way, warming you, also it tastes fruity and sweet. Nice brew, quite nice.
