UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 fruity, sweet and little plummy aroma. Complex taste, very sweet with some hints of spice. A little heavy... [re-rate]well, I got a case of this for good money from the importers over here.. the magnificent aroma fills the room when it´s poured into the stunning westmalle glas, very golden body, firm white head, fruity, plummy, yeasty and a little citrus aroma. This is a serious brew, very complex, a little heavy but a joy to drink

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light vanilla, apple, pear and some yeast aromas. Initially light on the tongue, this has a very pleasant and rounded vanilla character, with spicy hop flavors and a touch of alcohol. Malt notes are also buried in there somewhere, but chiefly come across as light fruit. Clean, crisp finish. One you really need to sip to enjoy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light orange straw, with a very persistent soft creamy head. Light white wine aroma, with some hay, yeast, pears and raisins. . . Peppery flavour swirled into dough, with fairly heavy alcohol on the tongue . . . Palette is dry, but soft, sweet and warm. A wonderful lingering flavour of soft fruits and flowers leaves me very satisfied.

Poured an orange yellow color and had an aged aroma with a rocky white head. Initial bite in the taste with an alcohol character in the background. Smooths out as it goes down.
