Pours a murky light brown color. Lots of suspended yeast. Small tight head, not much retention.

The aroma is yeasty with dark fruit phenols. Candied plum, raisin and honey. Sweet and musty.

The taste is similar to the nose. Prune candi sugar and honey. Not overly strong but dominates the flavor. Some clove from the yeast.

The feel is moderate with very fizzy carbonation, burns a bit. Sweet on the palate but finishes quite dry.

Drinks like a light Quad. Fruity yeast flavors. Nothing pops though.

Drinking from a 750 cl botte, poured into tulip glass. Initial towering head fades to creamy sking. Color is murky amber/copper. Aroma of hay and grass, taste has some hints of butterscotch and caramel. Very smooth considering ABV%. Let’s see if these French monks can give their Belgian brothers a run for their money....

Pours a cloudy amber with quite a bit a floating particulates and 2 plus solid fingers of head that settles after a bit to a lasting cap. Scent of slightly sour apple. Taste follows smell...fairly malty nice feel. Really enjoyed this with dinner.

Mild chill hazed copper colored ale with a tall off-white colored head.

Powerful level of carbonation. Smells of apples and caramel. Faint scent of lemon. Mild honeysuckle flower scent.

Starts out mildly sweet and spicy with a cinnamon taste. Taste of coriander and flowers with the taste of apple butter.

Mouthfeel is good.

Good mild Belgian style ale.

A 750ml bottle brought back from Cassel in Northern France. Pours a cloudy brown colour with a beige head that lingers. Aromas of caramel, spice & malt. Tastes of caramel, spice, apple & malt with quite a alcoholic aftertaste. Overall a decent beer without standing out from the crowd.

My new favorite Belgian beer. A beautiful brown color, a smell like chocolate chip banana nut muffins, a flavor that's like that plus refreshing notes of citrus. An amazing beer. These monks really know what they are doing.

Brewed by Chimay (the French abbey is a cheese procucer, only), a very worthy beer that ranges between the Blue and the Red - Absolutely love it

Ripe, Yeast, Biscuity, Spicy

The new Trappist Ale on the block. This French abbey sought out help from fellow Trappist monks from Chimay to get their beer brand up and running. Fallen apple, faint clove, and crackers come to mind. A bit bold and in your face with the slightly higher level of alcohol, fruitiness, and yeast character though there is a lot of other inner workings of complexity and finesse that make this brew a treat.

STYLE: Trappist Amber Ale | ABV: 7.6% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

Spice, cloves, maybe a little dried fruit, apricot, banana. Not a particularly long finish. Warming alcohol.

Bought at www.cervezasespeciales.com. Playing KB Dark Side. Good but a bit more bitter than what it would be desiderable
