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!

75cl bottle poured into a Sint Bernardus goblet at 45°F per directions on the label. I normally do not cool anything this much. No obvious best by date, but the code I did find started with 13.

Smell - hops
Appearance - slightly cloudy, slightly reddish tan with an inch of fine bubbles forming a pale tan head. Little lacing but the head persisted to the end of the glass. Looked good in the goblet.
Taste - Belgian yeast, a bit of candy sugar, a hint of Brett and nice hops. A few sips had a slight metallic tang but not annoying. Taste did not develop much as it warmed.
Mouthfeel - seemed a bit thin for the style. Perhaps I could have made an effort to conserve the carbonation but I did make a careful pour. Slightly coated the tongue which is a minus for me.
Overall - good but not a lot of distinguishing character. It's as if someone set out to brew a generic Trappist. I would drink this again but don't feel compelled to buy more.
