Oddly an aroma of coffee. Palate seems smoother than Westoek X. This one might be the better of the two.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy brown color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and perfect lacing. Aroma consists of spicy yeast with nice Belgian malt notes and some residual sugar. Taste is a nice drinkable mix between some Belgian malt with notes of candi sugar and a very nice spicy yeast finish. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some limited filtration with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed though not as easily drinkable as the blonde version but the Struise yeast strain is still shining.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some mild floral and yeasty notes as well. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some wood, quite sweet malts and actually a quite big bitterness lurking in the background and giving a nice dry bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
