This was packaged in a .750ml cork finished bottle with a Koningshoeven goblet inside the box(What a bargain!).
The cork produced a beautiful "pop" when released. That got me even more fired up! I have been looking forward to trying this beer for awhile.The beer poured a bronze-orange color. Much clearer than I expected. The head was thin with some decent lacing as the beer was drained.
The initial aroma was of nice yeast, malt and maybe a little brown sugar. The flavor was slightly yeasty initially and as it warmed up much more of the fruity flavors (banana, pear?, raisin) began to show. This beer seemed to be fairly high in carbonation. The alcohol is 10% and although it was evident in the warming effect the beer had, it was in no way overpowering. Overall a very enjoyable Trappist beer. I will definitely try it again and I am looking forward to trying the enkel. dubbel and trippel that they produce.

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a tulip. Unsure of the vintage. Pours an amber hue with a rocky, two-inch, off-white head embedded with craters and ringlets. Head eventually dissipates into a algae-like slick with swaths and spots of lacing coating the edges of the glass. Nose expresses notes of bubblegum, a sweet vinous quality and a suggestion of something else; perhaps honey. Taste consistent with nose, with the addition of a candied quality and just a trace of hops that is a bit muddled, but slightly evident at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pleasant, even carbonation that leaves a residual prickle at the back of the throat between quaffs. There's also the slightest oiliness to the texture. Overall, a decent Quad, but a bit too sweet. Not sure how well this will hold up in the cellar - I get the slightest sense of a metallic quality which I don't think will bode well for extended cellaring.
