Launched in 1987 (along with La Trappe Dubbel), this powerful Trappist beer is brewed using coriander which gives the beer a slightly spicy character. The monks which oversee its production recommend a serving temperature between 10-14ºC.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/01/2012

Appearance

Slight haze, orange-amber with thick lasting head which leaves lacing in its wake.

Aroma

Yeasty fruity nose (overripe banana, Cox apple, zesty orange and pink grapefruit) with caramel and a touch of bubble-gum.

Taste

Nothing bland about this bittersweet brew. Hugely flavoured palate with malt aplenty, apple and orange fruitiness, a citrusy bite and a hint of coriander spice. Alcohol shows but belies its 8% strength.

Aftertaste

Aftertaste: Citrusy banana cake and spice finish.
