Beer that tastes so nice while drinking, that I almost forgot how it has 7,5% alcohol. The taste, and the aftertaste are so good, that it can be drinked when ever and with every kind of food. I strongly recommend to try this beer without hesitation.
5 thumbs up.
P.S. this is my subjective opinion.

Solid Trappist beer overall. Belgium maltiness and fruit flavors up front, with great carbonation. Flavors are well balanced, making for a crisp and clean taste. Good introductory Trappist beer for beginners.
The price is right on this one as it was one of the cheaper Trappist beer selections but is not cheap on taste. Would certainly try this one again.

Random find at a liquor store on the way home from work. Stamp of “12:40 K24H12.” Cool little 11.2 oz bottle poured into an Achel Trappist glass. Served slightly chilled.
Appearance: Pours a huge off white head which quickly fizzles away. Eventually only some wisps and a ring remained. Reddish brown body with lots of carbonation action.
Aroma: Candi sugar, dried cherries, prunes and sweet caramel malts. A bit of carbonation ‘bite’.
Taste: Dried cherries and prunes up front followed by candi sugars. Ends on a very pleasant malty note not unlike a fresh loaf of bread. Floral alcohol throughout.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation and rosy alcohol. Definitely a warming beer.
Overall: A very sweet beer with lots of dried cherry/fruit notes, toasty caramel and brown sugarish malts. Very carbonated and warming. Nothing to really go out of your way for but I wouldn’t mind trying the oak aged version of this.

330ml bottle. La Trappe Tasting Goblet. Cooper color, orangish amber to the light & cloudy appearance. Intense caramel malt & Belgian yeast aromas, orange hues, as well as biscuit, herbal, flowery & phenolic notes. Sweet mild toasted flavor & spiced touch at first sip. Medium to full body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Oily texture & kind warming & well integrated ABV. In the middle, fruity, delicate & low bitterness rounded by gentle notes of wood resolve in a very subtle citric zest astringency. Sweet/bitter finish. Fruity aftertaste & spicy hints. Refreshing, flavorful & suggested for a paused drink !!

Trappist beer lite. Suitable for introducing the style to someone you think might be scared off by the sturdier stuff. Works best if its served up room/cellar temperature instead of cold so that all the flavours and aromas have a chance to work.
Lots of caramel and sugar. Very sweet, but not tooth jarring. A bit of dark fruit. Lots of spice and yeast. Comes across as reminiscent of a weiss. Fairly easy drinking.

Has a very unattractive pond water brown color with a fizzy head of bigger bubbles that sounds away to some scuzzy foam trappings.
Semi-sweet apple aromas with a delectable juiciness that comes adorned with fleshy notes and assorted bruised fruits. Pear and fresh fig factor in, also, with appealing esters that don't come off as muddled or contrived. Vibrant with pale and dark fruits. Light toast character melds well with nectary Belgian malts and low phenol levels. Musty grape and slight perfume notes are other layers in the aroma. Complex.
Spicy start on the palate that is quite short of brutal, although a decent stack of alcohol gives you a good jolt. Massively fruity, still, showcasing more apple and pear and grape than anything else. Some apricot and hints of cherry also come out. It gets a little sweeter as it warms up, but the candi sugar notes are secondary. Yeast has become quite formidable, as I'm noticing a nutshell flavor stirred in with the sweetness of the caramel malt.
A good body with a wetness that fills out the mouthfeel without coming off as too oily or textured. Smooth, as there's a contained level of carbonation that doesn't seem to want to isolate itself. It does show up late, the most. Gas is ideal, in these ways.
A lot of heftiness and flavor coming at you, however, without being bold. A sturdy Belgian golden ale with a darker side.
