look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

dark golden color with a white head that shrinks to a collar and doesn't leave tons of lace. nose and taste are tropical fruit, apricot, citrus, flowers and sweet malt. fruity hop flavors play with the malt well. slight bitterness in the back end as there should be. very nice balance. medium body, low carbonation and a soft and silky feel. much more AIPA than Belgian-style to me, but whatever... always impressed by de dochter. fun and easy to drink.

From a bottle dated February 2016, poured a murky gold color with over two fingers worth of foamy white head that stays around for a while. The smell is floral with a hint of citrus and a bit of spice. The flavor is herbal and spicy with a citrus bitterness as well. The Belgian yeast is balanced in the flavor but doesn't overpower. The feel is less than medium with very light carbonation. This is an enjoyable beer but I don't know how to explain how the flavor just stops as if there is no after taste. Other than that I thoroughly enjoy this IPA.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a two finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, spices, sugar, and super sweet. The flavor was of sweet malt, spices, banana, sugar, and subtle fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The aroma on this one was a little overwhelming as far as the sweetness aspect goes. However the flavor was a little more subdued. This made it rather enjoyable and easy to drink in comparison to the aroma. Definitely worth trying if you see it around.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet grainy and hay-like malt, some soft Belgian phenols and sweet confectionery notes. A little subtle.
More sweet hay notes as a flavour. Some spicy and floral hops as well as a little honey. An assertive bitterness round things out.
Carbonation is much too high.

Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a super large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of dry floral hops with light fruity ester and some bready malt. Taste is a mix between some bready malt notes with some fruity ester and some earthy and dry floral hops with light bitter finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice offering though not something I would look for on a regular basis.

Pretty good brewery. Tried several beers and I liked them a lot.
Liking IPA's , so i'm curious about this.

Orange colour. Fizzing beer, but a good head. nice lacing. cloudy as it's poured out.
Smell is fruity: apricot, mandarine fruit, clear pine as well.
Taste is bitterness, as expected, but not crazy. Spicy as well.

Overall it's a nice beer. Always good smell, taste delivers.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a massive two finger high white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a good sized head covering the surface and rings of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S: The nose has a light but interesting mixture of floral and grassy hops, lemons and spices.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has some hints of herbs and a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a high amount of carbonation. There is a lot of dryness throughout the taste, which particularly stands out in the finish and aftertaste.
O: The flavors in this Belgian IPA are very unique for the style. It definitely makes for an interesting beer to sip and savor.

I had no idea what I was ordering in La Trappist, Brugge on 31st Jan 2014, but at 6% ABV this was the weakest beer on-tap and as I'd never had it before I chose to try it: glad I did.

I'm no expert on Belgian IPA's but this came across as a very drinkable beer indeed.

Came slightly cloudy, orange to light amber in colour with a good white head.

The aroma was floral with a citrus lead, pink grapefruit and something more tropical and sweeter.

The taste was also citrus led, again grapefruit came to mind, with yet again a sweeter feel within the flavours. The finish was leaning towards bitter, but didn't quiet make it the whole way.

Interesting and different, glad I picked it out.
