750ml bottle -
My nephew was kind enough to bring this with him to our Thanksgiving gathering. Really tasty, and although I was expecting a huge sugar-bomb it wound up being really nice for the style and not overly sweet at all. Light notes of vanilla-like whiskey, toffee, and dried golden raisins. Flavor perfectly hides any semblance of alcohol and what’s left is apricot jam, toffee, and dates. Supple texture w/o being syrupy or overly sticky. Finishes in a fantastic way. You really would have a hard time finding anything to complain about with this one.

Bottle. Dark orange with lasting foam head. Strong yeast aroma, soft French cheeses, canned peas, boozy hint. Interesting taste: not as sour as it first appears, mellow, yeasty, creamy development. Belgian (sour) mayonnaise, cabbage, hint of cheese (belegen Gouda) in aftertaste.
