German yeasts, chocolate, anise. Alcohol is well-hidden. Nice beer but not the best trappist

4/5  rDev -6.8%

APPEARANCE - Clear amber with 2-finger head that lasts. Good lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, grain, sweet.

TASTE - Hops, nutty, bread. ABV mostly hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation, clean, light, effervescent, crisp, refreshing.

VALUE - $10 for an 11 oz. bottle - not that bad for an import at a restaurant.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Quite drimkable for a Tripel. Not a sipping beer.

Purchased at the LCBO for $3.30 for a 330ml bottle. Nice round numbers!!

A- Very good. Nice dark brown. Nice head that films out in a minute. This one was in storage for 1yr

S- Very good. Lots of malt. Good caramel. Figs

T- Lots going on. Mellow and rich. Good blend.

M- Still has a lot of carbonation. Excellent tongue when that wears off

O- Excellent brew. Have a few in the cellar for later so I'm happy

Food Pairing

This nice brew went well with...... Braised lamb shank with root vegetables in a balsamic reduction

Enjoy!!
