This beer has to fulfill a lot of expectations.
It pours a soft, cloudy medium gold. Very pretty tone in color. The head builds white, about 1 1/2 inch high and dissipates rather fast, leaving nice lacing on top.
The smell announces a fruity palate, with orange, peach even some grape flavor. Malt and caramel are present.
The taste is quite remarkable. A very fresh, soft combination of tastes will make you scream for more.up front you will be greeted by a remarkable hop selection which will be immediately influenced by a fruit ensemble of orange, peach, little banana and citrus I. The middle.
The end rounds everything up with a malty bittersweet end. Caramel and very little brown sugar taste build the finish.
Everything is very complimentary to each other and the softness of the beer is incredible. They must really have some special water at that monastery.
Great must taste beer!

4.24/5 rDev +2.7%

Hazy amber orange color with a huge thick head with great retention and leaving lots of laces.
Fruity aroma with notes of grapes, peaches, Belgian yeast, mango, candi sugar and banana.
Flavor of young wine, white pepper, coriander, apple juice, pear, herbal hops, core of pineapple, bread, almonds and lemon. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is completely well hidden.
Very elegant fruity Tripel with a subtle tartness and superbly well balanced. Complexity comes slowly in small pieces. Huge drinkability for its high abv. Very easy to drink for new lovers and still interesting for experienced.
