Pours a beautiful chestnut color with a lofty, tan head. It drops evenly and settles to a very thick film and leaves a sheet of lacing on the glass.
Smell is malty, rich with fruit notes (apple, white grape), some wood, and I think a hint of sherry, maybe. Good balance.
Taste is, after 15 minutes in the glass, malt, wood, light fruits, a not inconsequential hit of alcohol, bubblegum and faint hops. Really well balanced.
Warming, rich, almost smooth. Medium plus body, light effervescence. Leaves a pretty decent amount of stickiness behind on the upper palate. A great beer, I'll take another, please.

Reddish brown hue with a head with serious staying power.

Smells of dark sweet fruit, banana, estery

Tastes of ripe bananas, a good amount of Belgian yeast Esters, plums, raisins.

Highly carbonated, light body, dry and high alcohol is well hidden.

Overall, not the best Trappist quad I've tried,but still very good.
