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.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy, medium orange amber with some light particulates floating around. Bottle popped so robustly, I thought this might be a gusher, but it was well behaved. Nice big four finger ivory head with good retention and tons of pillowy lacing. Aroma of bready malt, pear and apple, light stone fruit, clove; slight mineral. Flavor follows aroma, with bready malt, mixed light stone and apple family fruit, clove, a little caramel developing in the finish, which is sweet fruit, clove and mild hops. Medium bodied with moderate creaminess from the fine, active carbonation. A nicely made Belgian pale. The flavor is not as intense as the quite promising aroma, but it well balanced and covers the expected flavor profile. The carbonation is excellent. Brewed by Chimay, and although it won't knock Blue of its pedestal, still a flavorful, pleasing Belgain pale. I'll get this again.
