A: like an over ripened orange and hazy, not really cloudy but still opaque. Half to one finger of white head that thins out. Slightly effervescent and leaves small amounts of thin lacing.
S: oranges and dark citrus fruits with a good amout of fruity yeast esters and biscuity malt notes. Its heavy on the malt and yeast but the hops are defiantly present.
T: same dark citrus fruits and still heavy on the malt and yeast. Biscuit is there through the whole taste and it ends with something similar to a granny smith apple taste (I now there is a word for it that starts with a D but I can't remember it). A bit peppery in the after taste that lingers.
MF: it has a medium body and is creamy, its also fairly effervescent. The alcohol isn't at all noticeable and the flavors transfer into one another smoothly. This is a filling beer that could easily double as a small meal!
D: you can almost taste the rarity! Yum! All kidding aside this beer has been brewed to a standard that can not easily be met. There is a special feeling you get when you drink a trappist ale. They are brewed to such prefection that not only are they the tastyest beers in the world they also have a story. This is an easy buy again when I can find it!

I actually had to give all fives. I loved this brew. The carbonation surprised me so yes I sinned and lost some but I have apologized to the beer gods and will carry on. This brew was tart at times but a joy to drink. the alcohol is upfront and lingers but in a good way. This brew is top of the line tripels and the dubbel is awesome also. Fruity aroma, high in carbonation and alcohol but yet a brew that can easily be enjoyed day in and out, hot or cold. Grab one or a few and share. Or just keep them to yourself and tell people how good they are.
