Although hardly a year old, the beer is definitely aged and it has aged very well. Orange-yellowish beer. Sweet aroma’s and taste. A bit of fruitiness (coriander, mango) and madeira. Bitterness is completely gone. Although nicely aged, I still prefer the fresh one.

330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Week 2008)
Sweet fruity aroma. Taste matches - sweetness is caramelly, but with loads of malt too, very malty. A bit of ginger too. Very tasty and clean despite the sweetness.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a clear golden with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma is very spicy, the lavender jumps out at me, oranges, ginger and some sort of leaves. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is very powerfully spiced. The lavender is still there, some flowery hops appear, a little menthol and a great warming viniousness. Not nearly as perfumy as I’d expected from the aroma.
