4.5/5 rDev +4.7%
Appearance: Cloudy golden straw with a big stream of carbonation. Produces a big foamy head and great lacing.
Smell: Bready and spicy. It smels a little boozy and has a powerful yeasty aroma. There's also candied fruit in the smell.
Taste: Super spicy. Wow! It's sweets with apple and spicy toffe flavours. There's huge Belgian yeastyness at play here. This beer is bitter (apparently 35-38ibu) and has a super dry finish.
Overall this is really a great beer. Quite full bodied and rich in flavour. I put it dead level with Karmeliet.

Poured into a Westmalle chalice.
Pours a nice Hazy gold. Not much head that dissipated quickly.
Smells like sweet bread/malts. Also getting some light fruits like apples and pears. Slight banana smell.
Taste is malty and sweet like most trappist tripels. I get some crisp apple taste, as well as some banana, like a weizenbock almost, just not as fruity an floral.
Mouthfeel is tremendous. Very light and crispy. HIgh carbonation, which is nice and tingly. mentioned how it compared to a weizenbock. Not nearly as thick as that. Very light, with a slight malty craeminess.
Overall a very good beer. Not the best trappist I've had (doesn't say much since they're all amazing), but still a very good one. I enjoyed the apple flavor. faint, but definitely there. Like biting into a freah apple right off the tree.
