From a 75 cl bottle shared at home to celebrate the birth of a grand son. Pours a hazy copper with an ecru head. Aroma of peach. Flavors of caramel, oak and vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel. Clean, slightly tart finish.

It’s been a while since I drank this so I can’t remember specifics - but it was an awesome beer. Not cheap though!

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours a thin white layer, that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is candy sugar, Belgian yeast and hints of alcohol, flavor is smooth, sweet, fruity & hints of caramel. Nice clean finish. The 13% ABV is not really noticeable but savor this beer, it ain’t cheap. Caged & corked 750ml bottle. Bottled in 2013.

KnutAlbert (6007) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Raisins, sweet malt, an edge of alcohol. Raisins, apricots. Very peleasant.

EdwinLitzau (319) - NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Mooie bruine kleur, weinig schuim. Ruikt heerlijk, naar wijn, hout. Smaakt fantastisch. Beetje zoet, beetje zuur, beetje bitter.

Westmeister (1650) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
2010 Vintage. Shared with some noncraft drinkers who loved. I also thought is was quite impressive. Dark brown red/orange pour with thinner white head. Smell is white wine, oak, ripe fruits (but on the light side; think tripel), some booze. Taste was white wine, with big oak barrel flavoring, vanilla, fruity light booze. Light carbonation with medium palate. Fine, fine beer.

Renobob (550) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Complexité entre la bière et le vin très intéressante pour cette bière de dégustation. Rondeur et corpulence très agréables. Super produit.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Dark gold amber pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is really oaky, white wine notes, boozy fruits. Taste is quite tannic, very oaky, white wine flavors. Rich palate, quite thick. good carbonation. Original beer, don’t think I ever had anything quite like it. Good stuff.

Slightly sour aroma and taste. Yeast, malts, caramel, bread. Sweet and sour finish.
