Like what? Trappist-style ales seem simplified to me, but the tangy yeasts and bready mouthfuls of flavor in this bronson are smooth despite the 10.5% alcohol. Really impressed with this number, even considering the enormous amount of decent trappist ales out there. Fantastic beer that I look to make a staple of my summer Tour de France viewing libation menu.

Poured bottle best by 2/14/16 into tulip glass

A-Deep amber color with a fluffy beige head. Great lacing!

S-Big sweet nose of candi sugar, plum, and yeast.

T-Sweet caramel flavors with more sugar, white raisins, plum, some yeast and lots of blooming alcohol.

M-Well balance and well carbonated.

O-Overall a great example of a Trappist quad. Will get some more.
