Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle into my wine goblet Lots of fluffy white head which stuck around. Appearance is a cloudy yellow. The "cork " is a rubbery cork vice real cork which I presume will prevent spoilage or introduction of air when cellared I guess at 6.5 ABV that you really would not benefit from cellaring.
Not a real pronounced smell to this. Taste is somewhat wheaty spicy and sour pear. Mouthfeel is medium bodied fairly carbonated. Overall a decent strong blonde ale but not my top Trappiste or blonde.

A: Small stubborn head. High effervescence. Golden colour.
S: Medium intensity. Beautiful perfumy aroma of bubblegum, roses, clove and banana. No hop character.
T: Taste is of medium intensity. Strong clove notes upfront but not shadowing of other expected aromatics like banana and bubblegum.
M: Low bitterness. Finishes sweet-ish. Very high carbonation. Soapy texture. Medium to medium full body.
O: An agreeable blonde with a sophisticated aroma but questionable texture and average taste.

On-tap. La Trappe Tasting chalice glass. Bright golden color, clear appearance. White froth, close crown showing modest retention. Aromas of Belgian yeast, pale malts & floral notes, hints of bread, slight citric, alcohol, nectar & hops to the nose. Gentle & crispy upfront displays delicate citric, spiced & brown sugar flavors rounded by fruity touches. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture, light spicy & sparkling palate. Low hoppiness & phenolic hues in the middle. Sweet/soft bitter finish lingers into the aftertaste. Easy drinkable & refreshing despite of being a real Belgish Blond one.
