COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by traditional refectory ales brewed by monks for the monks’ table, Spencer is a full-bodied, golden-hued Trappist ale with fruit accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, is home to a community of Trappist monks and the first American Trappist brewery. Following the Benedictine tradition of ora et labor (prayer and work), the monks pursue a simple life of contemplative prayer, a manual labor and hospitality. The brewery helps support the monks and their charitable outreach.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Bier smaakt wel lekker, maar kan het echt helaas geen trappist noemen. Toen ik de fles opende nadat ik hem uit de koelkast haalde spoot er al schuim uit het flesje... dat was dus zeker al een slecht begin.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Une trappiste américaine? Cela demandait à être testé. Jaune pâle, presque orangée. Des arômes plutôt céréaliers et un peu sucrés. Au niveau du goût, je ne suis pas convaincu, trouvant que l'on sent un peu trop l'alcool malgré le titrage assez faible. À déguster sans doute un peu moins fraîche pour une meilleure expérience.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Robe orange foncée. Fine mousse. Un coup de coeur pour cette trappiste américaine. Mélange d'épices, de banane, de caramel. J'aime beaucoup.

2018-01-13. Pale yellow amber body modest head. 3+ Aroma has a sweetish bready pale malt character. Flavour is similar, bready pale malt base, light bitterness. Touch of honey like notes. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Enjoyable. 7/3-4/7/3/15 Bottle shared by mds.

Metalchopz (3680) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2018
Pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a warm frothy cap, good stay and some thick foamy lace. Fruity malt aromas with orange notes and Belgian Ale yeast, on the mild side. The taste is quite cereal malt like with the oranges in the background. A nice light blend of hops and the yeast lingers. A pretty easy-drinking Belgian Ale.

mikkopen (1197) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2018
750 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, dense white head. Fruity, peppery aroma with banana & citrus notes. The taste is malty, with notes of citrus and yeast, and a spicy finish. Simple but tasty.

Tranquillity (2570) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017
Bottled. Halt hazy orange body, small white head. The aroma has coriander, banana and wheat. The taste is yeasty and spicy. Very well balanced.
