750 into a duvel tulip

Pours mahogany brown with a fast lingering cream head

Belgian candy yeast, dark fruits, malts, and caramel in the nose

Taste is Belgian yeast, slight toffee, cinnamon, and spice

Finishes dry

The flavor has a whole lotta what could have been. I'm a big Trappist beer fan but was kinda disappointed in this one. Maybe a tad too tame

750 ml cork and cage bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
6% ABV

A - Bright crimson amber in color, this mildly clear, beautifully colored beer is complimented by a lasting ivory head that leaves wonderfully delicate lacing on the glass.

S - Dusty Belgian yeast opens Jubilaris with an intoxicatingly classic nose that brings forth dark stone fruits, chocolate covered raisins, and a spicy finish of clove and white pepper. Caramel and dark sugar undertones create a smooth building base that begs for a sip.

T - Delicate maltiness provides light bread and caramel drizzled sweetness to the tongue while yeast fills in the gaps with fruity undertones and soft spiciness for a flavor that's surprisingly lighter, in every regard, than the aroma suggests.

M - Tight carbonation through Jubilaris is sparkling with crispness but doesn't attack the tongue while it's light body smoothly makes it's way across the tongue with a lasting dryness on the back end.

O - Jubilaris aromatically offers a plethora of classic Belgian characteristics that excite the senses but the taste comes as a bit of a let down with how little the nose translates to flavor. The blend smells of two different beers but ends up a bit jumbled and confusing though not without an incredibly level of drinkablility! In the end, I'd rather have either one or the other, not the Dubbel and Lsid'or combined.

Served in a goblet at Beer Market - Schaumburg.

It's been a while since I've had a La Trappe, much less one I've never heard before, so it was easy to order this bad boy. It pours a mostly clear topaz-russet topped by a short finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises Belgian yeast, Belgian candi sugar, light oats, mild maple syrup, mild mixed greens, and a touch of pumpernickel. The taste brings in more of the same, with the greens coming in a bit stronger, the yeast and the bread really hitting it off, and a new-coming bit of cedar causing some mischief. This woodiness just doesn't meld with its surroundings very well, forcing some flavor clashes. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth feel. Overall, an okay little beer, but the woodiness just didn't work with the other flavors, precluding full enjoyment.

750ml (1pt 94fl.oz.) corked bottle. La Trappe Chalice glass. Pours pretty nice reddish amber in color with clear appearance. Light beige froth creates a close crown & shows fairly good retention. Lacing webs are left. Deep aromas of caramel malts, molasses, brown sugar, ripe fruits -plum & apricot-, slight phenolic & alcohol notes, clove & vanilla hues as well as very subtle orange on the backside. Kind & smooth upfront displays toasted & caramel flavors rounded by underliying alcohol touches. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Silky palate. Low bitterness & delicate citric just to avoid cloyingness from a malty, toasted & fruity bed. Long finish. Hints of orange & very subtle nutmeg on the aftertaste. For a paused drink to taste the silence. Easy drinkable & delightful beer !!

750 corked and caged, thanks to my buddy Woody. Anyone who doesn't have a Woody, should get one, they're great. But I digress. Poured into a goblet, it is caramel in color, with a fizzy off white head that settles before too terribly long. Smell is slightly sweet, biscuit-like, and fruity. Taste is not at all like it smells. Woody, very very dry, and with a slightly plant-like finish. Wow, very dry. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated but a tad thin. This is an interesting beer. It seems more like a dubbel than anything, but it is a bit harsh. I suspect that ageing this one for a couple of years may do it a lot of good, but I've just opened the only bottle I have so someone else will have to run that experiment.

Very nice Cognac brown hue with a touch of richness and a dense foam for a head.

The nose holds a deep sweetness of malty sweet breads, pumpernickle, caraway and anise. There's lots of dried fruits like prune and date with a candied fruit cake.

The flavor holds more of the dried fruit with a thick sweet prune and date but it has enough malt that fruit cake seems more appropriate. The finish is almond and licorice with even a bit of pecan.

The feel is appropriate but maybe a little thinner than I'd expect with the style.

I really like this and to think I nearly missed it but to finish off my wife's choice and then order a second.

Bottled I brought to share at Oneinchaway's tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, pear juice, and pear aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, fruit, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice pear presence in the aroma.
