A couple of days ago I drank Maredsous' BPA and also Cuvée des Trolls' BPA, it's always nice to have the same kind of beer, one after another -it's a nice way to make comparisons.
So...
La Trappe's BPA is not very much out of the expectancies. It has a translucid gold color and a nice never-ending whitey foam.
Smell and taste are really yeasty and malty, I could feel also some honey tones in the taste and some grains after it warmed a bit.
Feel is great as the great belgian beers usually are, really well balanced. This beer has a translucid color but has a nice body nevertheless; carbonation is at good level; bitterness appears better when the beer warms a bit; alcohol is somewhat hidden.
Yeah, that's a nice one.

330ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.49):
This one was another great beer from La Trappe, an excellent offering with a very good balance that made it an easy beer to drink with a nice, crisp finish and plenty of carbonation; a good beer and one that I'll not be afraid to pick up again.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 08:59 K17D14. AROMA: sweet and spicy aroma background with some orange notes. some perfumy and honey-like alcohol aromas. APPEARANCE: intense gold color and translucent but with deposit that may give a very hazy appearance. good moussy white head with good retention and lacing. TASTE: smooth flavours with light notes of sweetness, esters (orange like) and spicy alcohols. medium-low bitterness with a medium-sweet finish. no hop flavours noticeable. PALATE: medium-low body with high carbonation. smooth alcohol warmth. OVERALL: an average exemple of a classic belgian blond ale (altough La Trappe is brewed in the Netherlands).
