11.2oz bottle poured into a Chimay goblet. Some yeast was accidentally added on the pour.

A: Deep red in color with hues of brown. Some particles hang in suspension due to a slightly careless pour. The quarter inch off-white head retains fairly well, but settles after a while. A thin blanket of lacing coats the glass.

S: Wildflower honey, caramel. Golden raisins and bananas foster. Bread pudding. Baked apples with cinnamon. Very dry nose despite the desserts it calls to mind. Yeast brings an earthy and spicy anchor. Lightly musty too. Subtle phenolic action. Slight hint of spicy alcohol.

T: Dried figs, rum-soaked golden raisins, yeasty spice and a spike of clove. Bone dry. Pluck of spicy alcohol. Soft hints of vanilla. Banana bread. Nutty. Dark candi sugar, light toast. Fleeting honeyed sweetness on the finish, chopped almonds, lingering yeasty spice.

M: Deceptively light in body for the style. Stiff, scrubbing carbonation. Slightly creamy, foamy. Low alcoholic heat. Feels a little emaciated.

O: It grew on me a little as I drank it. Not as nuanced and seamlessly put together as some of its other Trappist counterparts, but still well worth a look.

A-Cloudy orange amber, two finger head with some lacing.

S-Some darker fruits, banana, clove, raisins and plums.

T-Starts with darker fruits, bread, clove and banana. Nice balance.

M-Medium bodied and nicely carbonation.

O-Had as a part to my countdown to Westy XII. A nice quad.

Picked up at Bootleggers after really liking the Tripel, so hopefully similar experience. About $11 poured into a tulip.

A- A very clear light dark reddish. Lots of lacing and a 1.5 finger head. kinda surprised at how this one looks. The tripel was much cloudier.

S- Not much to the nose, some fruit and yeast and alcohol

T- Honestly not very complex as I was expecting. Grape and apricot, as well as a strong alcohol. 10% is a lot to hide but thought it would be more robust. Not much harmony with that strong alcohol taste.

MF- Very light, above average carbonation. Pretty drinkable except for the alcohol overpower

Overall, will not get again, not my favorite. For my personal taste I thought there could be more going on. I like darker brew anyways and I was really impressed with the tripel.

I've been looking forward to trying this for some time. Superb, lightly spicy aroma with caramel malt and hints of honey. ABV well hidden. The light spicing in the nose is much more obvious in tasting. Rich and complex flavor but, unfortunately, it is just too sweet. On the other hand, the aftertaste is great.
