TheJestersBeer (2308) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2015
750ml bottle. Pours a deep amber, with quite heavy sediment towards the end of the bottle, beige head. Fruity, spicy, estery aroma, yeasty phenols, apricot, candied sugar, dried fruit, cloves. Off-dry, full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Spicy, yeasty taste, caramel, cloves, dried fruit, malt. I was expecting more complexity, it thins out rather quickly and leaves a slightly harsh finish. (2015-12-18)

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2016 Had deze fles nog staan tussen me biervoorraad en was een beetje in de vergetenheig geraakt. Bier is mooi donker van kleur met een schuimkraag die helaas erg snel wegtrekt. Aroma is fruitig, smaak is wat van gedroogd fruit.

Bottle: Hazy, ruby-amber coloured, some floaties visible, stable off-White foamy layer; dried red berries, caramel and delicate traces of Wood and vanilla in the seet dark-malty nose; moderate sweet and mildly bitter flavour, medium bodied, not very soft; lingering vinous-fruity and caramelly finish with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Good, good...

Shared with Tbone, thanks Timo ! Dark hazy amber color with small frothyy off-white head. Fruity nose. Aroma has sweet ripe fruits and a bit of yeast. Flavour is fruity (dried figs, plum?) and licorice. Alcohol is noticeable despite low%. nicely balanced, pleasant brew.

What a beautiful beer. A jubilee La Trappe beer being brewed for you, is the biggest honor a man can get. The beer is very appealing. The beer forms a large 1 centimeter white frothy head, which collapses to leave a thin creamy layer of slightly of white foam. The beer has a beautiful ruby red color, very beautiful when the sun is behind the glas and illuminates the contents. The smell is good. There is a sweet aroma, which gives a nice fruitiness. There is also a spicy coriander aroma. The smell is both sweet and herbal, which gives a perfect balance. There is a slight hint of metal. The mouth sensation is nice. However, the carbonation might have been a little more. The palate could have been a little more exiting. The taste is nice. The beer has the familiar La Trappe taste, which makes this my favorite brand. The beer has a nice almondy caramel light brown taste. This sweet tastes are balanced by a hoppy bitternes. The sweet and bitter flavors are balanced out perfectly. The beer also has a little refreshing sour aroma. Really, really nice. Unfortunately, the beer is seasonal and not available permanently. The batch has a sell by date of august 2015, so I guess getting hold on a bottle by now is very hard. Luckily I have another one in store...
