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.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
