For ett fantastisk øl. Må oppleves og nytes. Nydelig duft flott skum , men dør litt ut. Dette er kjøpt I Danmark 2014 usikker på når denne er produsert.

Aromas de una cerveza completa y bien balanceada. Notas a frutos secos, principalmente higos y a frutos rojos, así como ligeras notas a nuez y levadura. Su apariencia es perfecta. Color café obscuro, cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion ligera, espuma abundante y de alta retención. En boca, cremosa, abundante, completa. Al paladar compleja y a la vez sencilla. Sabores bien encarados, notas ligeramente dulces pero nada agresivas. En boca nuevamente se perciben los frutos secos principalmente. La cremosidad es perfecta, dejando la sensación de un alimento completo. El final es largo pero a la vez delicioso. En resumen una trapense en toda la extensión de la palabra. No por nada considerada la mejor cerveza del mundo. Exquisita. Es importante decir que su potencia alcohólica no se percibe en ningún momento.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 33cl flesje bij De Vuurmolen, Brugge Alcoholpercentage van 10,2% Uitgeschonken in Westmalle glas Uiterlijk: hazelnootkleurig met kleine dekkende schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: rozijnen, zoet, donker fruit, kandijsuiker, warme afdronk Conclusie: altijd speciaal om een Westvleteren te drinken met beperkte oplage, geen etiket op de fles. Erg goed bier natuurlijk dat de monniken brouwen daar.

Hated the aroma on this one the opening of the bottle. Fell in love on the pour and was lost on the taste. WHAT an beer, insanely well composited beer on it´s abv level. I´m no fan whatsoever of belgian style beers at all, yet this one mangages to entice me, the taste is nothing at all to what i expected it to be on the first aroma sample. So sweet! so balanced, so belgian funky but still not, how did they make this beer? Begs the question!

Good Belgian trappist beer. But not the best in the world. Dark brown colour, aroma of dried fruit.

Ocena 4.5, a jednak małe rozczarowanie... W aromacie ciasto z wisniami, czyli słodko i czerwono, jest też belgijska przyprawowość, z naciskiem na goździki, bardzo fajna kompozycja. W smaku przyprawowość wymieszana z marcepanem, śliwka węgierka, karmel, kandyzowane owoce, spora jak na styl goryczka ziołowa nadająca kontrę, piwo bardzo gładkie, świetnie ukrywające alkohol. Doskonałe, ale spodziewałem się czegoś więcej. Tak, jestem maruda.

LaViolette (109) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Ok, that’s THE beer.. I am lucky enough to have a bar that serves it behind where I live and a shop that sells too... I know, you hate me ;) This is a beautiful Trappist, my favourite Trappist for sure, along with the Rochefort 10. A golden brown colour, very well balanced, though it’s 10,2% the alcohol level is perfect, not too high I think. A lot of caramel on the nose and mouth. People call it "the angels pissing on your tong" over here. This beer is good...but still for me it’s not "the best beer in the World" and a bit disappointing considering how famous it is and how hard it is to get it.

Imported in bottles from belgiuminabox. Do yourself a favor and learn to be patient! First bottle I wasn’t and I was very unimpressed. Waited 30 days to open the second. An entirely new world. Very smooth aroma and mouthfeel. Terrific and complex layers of flavor.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with small white head that fades fast. Aroma is fresh with malts and sweetness. Taste is very nicely balanced. Thanks SNL

Bottle. Caramel color, small offwhite head. Slightly sour nose, crisp taste, with a clear sweet note. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.
