Hazy dark brown, stable, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of pear, plum, red apple, hard caramel, toast, wood, clove, brown bread. Taste has sweetish pear, plum & red apple in a caramelly, bready, even slightly toasty malt body with herbal, clove-like aspects. Softly herbal & earthy hoppy finish, bit dry and nutty along dried fruit notes. Medium body, slick-creamy texture, average carbonation. Not very outspoken but I appreciate the very slightly roasted aspect here.

Taste has sweet pear, apricot & apple in a bready malt body with spicy accents, coriander but not soapy, some sourish wheat & citrus. Floral hoppy finish, quite fruity-yeasty yet 'dry' spicy too, perfumey and flowery, with warming gin-like alcohol. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Nicely floral, fruity and elegantly spiced; a rounded Trappist.
