Mont des Cats has a thin-to-medium, off-white, spongy head, very tight, fast bubble streams, a murky, orange appearance, and not much lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of mellow, sweet, spiced bread, bread crust, and possibleysome sugar. Taste is of those elements, with some yeast and light fruits, such as dates or figs. Mouthfeel is light to medium and prickly, and Mont des Cats finishes crisp, easy going, and not at all boozy.

A soft, tan head rests atop this amber brew. Aroma of pear, peach, yeast and sugar. Tastes creamy with persimmon, ripened pear, a squirt of orange, a hint of brett, Belgian yeast and an appropriate hop backdrop. Medium bodied with enough heat to start the party. Totally surprised by this excellent find!

A trappist beer brewed by the monks who brew Chimay (Abbaye de Scourmont ) for the monks at Abbaye du Mont des Cats.
Nose: fruit, dark dried fruit, spice, bubble gum
Pours brilliant copper brown under a persistent moussey 1" off-white foam cap, lacy.
Palate: Big candy and bubble gum on the front that gradually gives way to hints of dried fruit, soft caramel, faint cola, and a hint of anise by the finish. A light hop accent joins with the malt to provide balance to this yeast driven beer.
The body is very creamy supported by above average fine soft carbonation. Slight warming.

A: Pour is all beige compact and thick head at first. After a while the head dissipates as the murky brown liquid rises. Fantastic lacings.

S: Malt, sweet and roasted. Lots of yeast. Fruits and berries; pears, apples, raspberries. Cloves. A kernel bitterness.

T: RIch, deep malt, almost vineous. Complex. Dark dried fruits together with fresh fruits; apples, pears, ripe oranges and some rasberries. Spices and hops.

M: Long warming sweet aftertaste. Body is full and carbonation low.

O: An interesting Trappist from France, my first.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, toast, earth, caramel, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, toast, caramel, earth, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance of malt, caramel, and spice characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.
