L: Pours hazy gold capped by a 3” off-white foam collar that recues slowly to about a third of its original size. Very lace. S: Honey and fruit aromas. T: Banana, fruit and spice – dries slightly out on the finish but the honey texture remains. A dash of white pepper. A moderate, clean, earthy hop bitterness. F: Rich and creamy, medium body, medium high carbonation. O: An interesting new Trappist Dubbel.

A rich beer and pretty malt-heavy. Fairly sweet, as it's brewed with honey which you can definitely taste. A nice desert beer addition to the Trappist brand.

Dark gold/brown color with a thick white head. Head fades to a decent lace. Aroma is a bit musty and mildly fruity. Taste is a bit lite. Mild fruit notes with a musty bite to it. Feel, is also lite ovoverall ok. Something is missing in this brew.
