One off the very-best Trappist beers. An orange/amber pour with a foamy head. The head disapates quickly into a foamy covering. Aroma raisiny fruits and hops. Tatse is fantastic, nice hops bitterness. Great Stuff ! scania (188) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle. Orange. Aroma of horse blanket (from wild yeast strain). Apricot in flavor. Dry and bitter finish mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours a wonderful orange and amber that at first appears somewhat brown once in the glass but fairly quickly develops a massive, solid and rocky head. Hops and yeast come forward mostly scentwise, with some clean but doughy malt. Flavor is fairly dry and attacking, but with some noticeable spice. There’s also a slight herbal taste to it. Overall, an excellent beer. MrBunn (2867) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Pours a brownish amber with a substantial frothy head. Aromas of bubble gum, plum, yeast, cloves and licorice are a treat. Flavors are heavy on cloves and plums with yeasty grain, anise and caramel lurking in the shadows. Nicely blended, but a bit of a thinner mouthfeel than expected... may improve with age.

Bottle: Cloudy copper color with a large, fluffed out, fizzy, white head and some serious sticky, chunky lacing. At first, I noticed a hoppy aroma which surprised me, but then I read the commercial description and I understood why. I also picked up a strong yeast aroma. It had the usualy hard core yeast taste, small alcohol lingering presence, grapes and mild bananas. It has a fairly dry feel which I assume are from the hop presence. Not bad - not too over the top like some others in this style that I haven’t enjoyed. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Slightly hazed orange pour with large fluffy white head. Aroma is bready maltiness and Belgian yeast. Flavor is light toasty malt, yeastiness, a with a touch of brown sugar and some wheat as well. Finishes with just a bit of sweetness. Medium body with aggressive carbonation not much bitter but very nice. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottled. Pours a hazy light amber with a towering, fluffy, lacy off-white head. Flowery aromas of fruit and spice. Medium body with fine carbonation. The taste is spicy, lightly sour, with orange peel, grass, nuts. Dry bitter-spice finish. f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Pours an orange/copper color with a large, rocky, white head. Aroma is hoppy, clean, and floral. Dryness of the beer is very refreshing. Complex flavor profile includes dry hoppiness, spicy bite, and of course, yeasty. A definite favorite of mine, the only Trappist I can claim to have bought a case of! Seek it out and try it for yourself, you won’t be disappointed. Mike191 (9) - Grapevine, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2006 does not count
Large tan head that deminished all too soon. Cloudy amber with good carbonation. Light palate with very good flavor. Great beer to have again and again.
