Beautiful head, cloudy brown colour. Aroma of apple and blackcurrant. The taste does not live up to the aroma: it is fruity with a slightly disgusting sweetness. The finish is long with a touch of acidity.

dark brown, nice head; aroma: banana, powerful, one-dimensional; taste: way too sweet; aftertaste: banana, long and disgusting - I was once a great fan of this beer but I have now to admit that my passion for sweet beers has dramaticaly slowed down

Clearly brewed in the style of Rochy 10 and Westy 12, this beer features a great combination of fruits, nuts and alcohol on the palate. Very hearty and characterful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2003 Dark brown color, reddish tinge, fully foaming head. Apples and plums in the aroma and flavor. Incredibly smooth and rich, satisfying. Lighter in body but truly excellent. Lights hints of chocolate. Strong carbonation carries fruits through the palate easily. Top notch. 10% ABV! Unbelievable! I'm giving it an extra point for not even hinting at alcohol.
