Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Robijnrood bier troebel vd gist. Aroma is fruitig, vanille. Smaak is vol, prikkelend. Licht zoet, beetje wrang. In de afdronk een bittertje waarbij het zuur ook iets meer naar voren komt.

All the taste from 10 but a bit easier to distinguish. Notes of all things fruity. Fig grape brown sugar raisin some rubbing alcohol. Reminds me of my dadís first home made wine. Just straight up good!

(bottle from LCBO) Pours a clouded reddish brown, orange around the edges, head of big white bubbles is short-lived without lace. Aroma is rich and complex as anything: fruit and some spice, makes me thing of cooked plums, maraschino cherry, spiced apple sauce, marzipan, vanilla, burnt sugar/toffee, sometimes seems like just a hint of cocoa/roast. On the palate it initially has a little sweetness, black cherry with a bit of caramel, light spice. In the middle it dries out and becomes a little vinous, earthy, a bit more spice. Finishes quite dry, persisting alcohol, somewhat bitter, noble-type hops and a sweet/tart fruit core, really mineral aftertaste. Body medium, carb is effervescent, not hard but palate-scrubbing, bit of alcohol from mid-palate on. This is good stuff, no doubt. In the mouth it seems to be cleared up by the bitter/mineral/carb nature of the finish. Maybe itís that Rochefort water? Love the nose, wish the palate had more concentration later on. Need to try the 10.

If I go to heaven when I die I hope this will be in abundance up there. Too advanced for me to rate, but I feel Iím in heaven when I drink it.

Bottle. Murky amber color. Aroma and flavor have elements of toast and jam, figs, and currants. Flavor is very rich and complex. Quite strong and a decent amount of carbonation. A very nice beer and a great representation of the style!
