Pours a murky brown-red, one finger of fizzy white foam, settles to a thin ring, a few dots trail down the glass. Was a foamer, lost 1/4 of the bottle. Smell: cooked pear, overripe nectarine, whiff of date bread, buttery note. Taste: lots of plum, dried dates, pear and spiciness and some vinous booziness in the finish. Building prickly yet overall subdued carbonation is really nice. Enjoyable.

Look- Nice hazy brown color, fluffy white head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing

Smell- Nice Belgian yeast character on the nose with bready malt

Taste- More of that Belgian yeast character and bready malt. Complex flavors in there

Mouthfeel- Medium body, crisp carbonation

Overall- A very good Trappist brew

Unusual offering from La Trappe, with a yeasty, sherry taste - decent beer, but not really one for me.

Pours a beautiful amber, copper color, with a decent, fizzy head.

Aromas of banana and toffeish malts are escaping from the glass.

Almost juicy banana along with cane sugar and a subtle hop dryness, including dough wheat, which blends well into the malty body of the beer. The hops compliment to the sweeter body of the beer, not only by adding balancing bitterness, but also by giving the malts a bready characteristic, including a somehow chewy aspect to the otherwise smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with a noteable, lively carbonation, which brings out honey and raisins. This gets accompanied by a supportive bitterness, which leaves the palate a little earlier than the malts do.
