330ml bottle. Tasting chalice glass. Amber color, chill haze appearance. Off-white froth creates a close crown & shows fairly good retention. Spiced – vanilla & herbs-, pale malt, spicy, delicate citric, sugar & coriander aromas. Smooth sweet maltiness is blown up by cumin notes & warm alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Texture is silky & ABV is felt. Hints of ripe fruit, light woody notes & sugary maltiness drive into a long sweet/fruity finish & aftertaste touched by funny peppery sensation.

750ml corked and caged poured into a chalice glass. Cheers to my buddy Woody for the beer. It pours a medium brown gold color with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of bread dough and honey. The taste is bready with a quick whack of cinnamon. Does cinnamon come in whacks? There is also a slight earthy flavor, with a really nice aftertaste that just makes you want to have another sip. It is a straightforward tripel, not like the Westmalle, but very refreshing. The mouthfeel is spot on, tingly and buttery. Overall, I like this beer quite a bit. It is very good in a very simple way. I've been called worse, so I imagine the monks would be OK with that description.
