750 mL. Pours a dark, hazy walnut brown color, plenty of thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is pretty muted, a bit of roasted malts and bready yeast, rye or pumpernickel loaf. Flavor is mildly sweet, with a great hit of roasted malts followed with a souring finish. Prunes, smoke, malt and licorice all accessible. Medium bodied with a fair bit of carbonation, this one sits sour and oily on the palate. Enjoyable, but I like their tripel better. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Smells yeasty, similar to all the La Trapple line I’ve tried. I imagine dust leaking in from old trappist tomes that affects the whole lot of La trappe beer and it’s great. Musky, floral and a little bit of bitter citrus peel. Some sour, a little hoppy bitter and a soft taste on palate. Great carbonation level. robinvboyer (4674) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
Hazy amber, small white head. Soft fruit, banana, bread, grains. Candi sugar, yeast, and a semi bitter yeast bready finish. Quevillon (3094) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
Drank on tap (12 oz) at The Merry Monk (Albany, NY) on September 18, 2012. Honey copper, small head. Aroma of ripe fruit and brown sugar maltiness. Taste of dried fruit, malted barley, fruity herbs aftertaste. It’s La Trappe, it’s good! probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012

750ml bottle from the LCBO. deep golden with an off white head. sweet malty nose with minimal belgian yeast character. flavour is one dimentional, boring and sweet. tough to drink a 750 of. dissapointing. GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy brown-orange with a lot of foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is decidedly sweet, with caramel and vanilla notes. Palate is on the light side of medium with strong carbonation. Taste is a bit sweet at first then turns a bit bitter but still very well balanced with with the sweetness. The aftertaste is very long lasting. It’s enjoyable, but not as strong as the other La Trappe beers. kevinsenn (2215) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle from LCBO. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber, with a half-inch beige head. Aroma is very spicy, with the faintest hint of alcohol. Taste is spicy at the beginning, with bread and biscuit at the end. Again, the faintest hint of alcohol. A tasty one. Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle 750 ml TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
Aroma: fruity , estery front with phenolic backing. Mineral notes, sweet top. Predictable but good.
Appearance: hazed dark amber with plus sized tabbed top. Some lace shown. 4-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium bodied. Rather strong frontal what character, some tartness, Belgian yeast, alcohol. Classic approach - what would you expect from something named Trappe.
750 mL bottle. Dark copper brown, nice head. Earthy, dry aroma. Carbonation a little higher than it needs to be. Flavour is pleasant, not as yeasty as some, earthy hops, not particularly exciting.
