Poured from a 33cl bottle into a goblet, bottle date of 080915. This pours a hazy tea color with a massive fizzy head which dissipates faster than I can type this sentence. The smells are wonderful, very fruity, lots of dark fruit, a little belgian yeast esters, some brown sugar and alcohol. The feel is medium, high carbonation. The taste is wonderful, a little fruity, some peach, strawberries, apricot, lots of dark fruit and some brown sugar, very nice.

Poured into riesling-esque glass at work. Pours a hazlenut brown with a quarter-inch of beaded white foam head that recedes.

Nose is spritzy with lots of apricot, raisin, and prune. I detect a hint of candied cherry as well.

Beer has an unexpected citrus that you wouldn't expect. Dark fruits, golden raisins and some orange peel on the palate. The taste intensity does not equal the smell, but there is a significant amount of bread and yeast.

Lots of nuances with a strong, slightly boozy, bready finish.

Quality beer that could present problems because if it's session quality

A: Pours a hazy deep copper with little to no froth dome.

S: Plum and figs are the most prominent characteristic of this beer with a hint of booze and sugar.

T: Brilliantly smooth beer that incorporates a delicious dry plum flavor with light simple but intriguing hop bitterness.

M: Smooth and relaxing flavor on the tongue followed by a gentle touch of carbonation.

O: A great beer just the like 8 & 10. Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't enjoyed a great Trappist beer.

Pours a dark brown amber with a big, two finger off-white, light coffee colored head. Aroma of dark fruits mostly, also grapes, caramel and hints of clove and spice. Really smooth caramel malt to start, one of the better highlights of this flavor in a beer that I've had. Not huge caramel flavor per se, but taste, amount of sweetness and mouthfeel combo is perfect. Moves to dark fruit notes before a lighter finish of white grapes and a pinch of spice. Not the biggest or best flavor profile, but very cohesive and excellently crafted.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Lots of sediment into the glass...I normally dont mind, but thats a lot! The last +- 2 oz couldnt be consumed.
Pours a healthy amber/brown; nice foamy head.
Smells of belgian yeasty banana and malts.
Taste is smoooth. Banana belgian hops, mixed with bready biscuity malts. Very pleasant and drinkable. Yes its a belgian, yes everyone should take note...its delicious.

For some odd reason just getting around to reviewing this all time favorite brew.

Reddish-brown in color with a consistent and patient tan head. Aroma consists of deep, rich dark chocolates, milk chocolate, caramel, cherries and sweet bread.

The taste mimics the aroma with big milk chocolates, sweet bread and cherries. Medium bodied, warm and creamy.

A vinous quality exists (grapes, plums).

Simply a perfect blend.
