A new organic beer from La Trappe. Again, maybe not the best trappist brewery, but by far the most innovative one.
Pours a golden-yellow color. Although it is very clearly an unfiltered beer (check the bottom of the bottle), the pour is quite clear. Nice head that disappears fast.
Smell is full of grass, some spicy and floral hops with citrus notes.
Taste is like a very good and refreshing. A kind of pilsner with a very pleasant dry, spicy bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: medium high carbonation, medium body.
Overall, this is a typical example of a beer that should be reviewed by the style. Nothing spectacular, but just very enjoyable. Compared to table beer of other trappist brewers, this one is together with the Westmalle Extra, the best of the monk table(-like) beers

33cl brown bottle w/ a freshness date.

Pale yellow, thin but sticky lace.

Fresh spicy hops, grassy, pale malt, hint of yeast, hop oil.

Mild crispness, clean graininess, herbal bite, spicy, dried hay, complex malt-hop finish.

So much flavor in this lager-like beer, hop complexities are epic. A truly amazing brew.

On tap at the abbey cafe during last week's trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes.

Served in a Puur pilsner glass.

Pours a clear straw color with a big sticky white head and an abundance of lacing. The nose brings forward light floral hops along with a bit of straw and grain. Flavor is a bit grainy but with a pronounced Noble hop character. Light body with crisp carbonation and moderate bitterness. Quite tasty and refreshing.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium thickness white head that fades down rather quickly. Carbonation seems very active.

Smell is floral, yeasty, spicey, earthy

Taste is hoppy with a nice earthy bite, dry and spicey. Some lemon zest. Very tasty and refreshing. I like it!

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a pale slightly cloudy straw colour with a nice white head that reduces to a lacing film.

S - Really nice aromas of hop and spices malts with yeast.

T - Up front some nice spice and hop followed by some spice and malt, the finish is a little watery.

M - light body with minimal carbonation, a little thin.

O - At 4.5% this is a very good beer with plenty of flavours. Perhaps a little thin.

33 cl. bottle.
Organic unfiltered, clear ale with small floaty bits. Pale golden, with a white head, great lacing in the glass.

Smell is of grassy and floral hops.
Taste is of malts, but mainly bitterness of the hops. Actually not bad. Reminds a lot of pilsner, but with a more balanced lingering aftertaste.

I like this brew from La Trappe. It's very easy and accessable.

3.64/5  rDev +2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a low amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin ring collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has flavors of spicy hops and a light amount of bitterness and hints of pale malts. Notes of yeast are also perceptible. Bitterness and spicy flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't match up to some of the better examples of the style but is pretty good considering it is organic.

330ml bottle served in my La Trappe chalice.

A: Pours a pale and bit cloudy yellow colour forming a small bubbled white head. Low retention but with a thin layer that lasts for long time. Some few lacing left

M: Very light and watery body with low carbonation. Aftertaste is mainly flowery hops bitterness

O: Very smooth and light beer. Quite good drinkability. Recommended

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - poured a hazy copper gold, medium sized head that dissipated fairly quickly

S -Orange and slightly sweet malt and hops

T - Very smooth, strong florally hops, sweet malt and coriander. Very light in flavour

M - Light, highly carbonated, quite dry

O - As as the style goes, this wasn't bad at all. This is a light, dry, but very drinkable beer. A bit watery and light for my tastes, but not bad if this is what you're looking for.
