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).

330ml bottle, poured into a La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, clear, lots of bubbles, two
finger rocky head, decent retention. S: Fruity esters. T: Esters, fruits, wheat, yeast,
more sweet than bitter. M: Creamy texture, smooth, well carbonated. O: More or
less a clone of Val Dieu blonde or a number of other Belgian blonde ales, it’s nice
and has no unique features, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
