77ships (5277) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012
375 ml bottle @ Kulminator // split between me & Man-ki// tasted along with batches # 3 & # 4 // from a tiny La Trappe tasting glass // 2011 Vintage // touch darker ruby amber than nr. 3 & 4, clear, head is interesting enough snow white as opposed to #3, #4 & Quercus #2 // sweet on the nose syrupy, hint of liquorish, plenty of dark fruits in this one, touch bitter // sweet syrupy, dark fruits going more towards dry & some canned ones as well, winter spices in the finish, toffee, vanilla, small touch wood, touch bitterness in the finish, that one is new, the wine?, otherwise not picking up distinct white wine or at least not what I would expect white wine to do // smooth, touch syrupy, carb. going closer to soft, out of the 3 prefered #3 & #4 but this is nice as well, grown accustomed to these

The head is robust, the color orange-red-brown. It smells sour-dusty a bit raisins, creamy-alcoholic. the taste is mild, fruity, dusty. I don´t like this one I more like the fresh one! 13/8/7/7/-/8

Bottle at Fermentoren. Pours a hazy brown with an offwhite head. Smells of caramel, brown sugar, white wine, spices. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, mild tart, some acidity, mild bitter. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy texture. The initial taste was much stronger on the white wine, esp compared to the dregs of #4 I had just finished. Mouthfeel is still quite white wine.

Light brown with a small off White head. Aroma of Wood, vanilla, grapes, and the whitewhine barrel notes makes perfect sence, they are there along with the rest. Heavy toffee flavor, alchohol, lots of vinouse notes, again vanilla. Desert like finish with the previous notes lingering. Great
