I bought this bottle from Amstein and I drank it at home for the Christmas. In my opinion, it is a regular trappist beer, I prefer the Achel blonde but it is just my impression. The color is orange/brown and troubled, thin and white foam. The carbonation is regular.The taste is malty, some hop, a touch of bitterness and plum, the final is a bit watery. Today, I will rate the 8 and the 10.

johndoughty (5190) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle. Brown with a medium head that soon dissipated to virtually no head at all.Slightly malty but no flavours that really grabbed me. Disappointing.

Inoven (478) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2016
Flesje gekregen van de buurman en thuis gedronken. Roodbruin, licht troebel bier. Weinig aroma, ietsje fruitig. Smaak is fruitig en kruidig, licht sprankelend in de mond. Nasmaak is iets hoppig.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Classic Belgian yeast and bread character. Very tasty, alcohol nicely hidden. Very low carbonation and the aroma is not very strong.

Het mindere broertje van de 8 en de 10. Frisse sprankelende neus. Banaan, rozijnen in de smaak. Smaakt jong.
