Bottle (in NZ). For me, better than the 12. More spice from the yeast, and almost sourness. Very tasty indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, cellared for about 1 year.
Brown, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head, that quickly diminishes to a small, stable ring.
Aroma of dried fruits, dark berries, sweet and sour apples, nuts, burnt sugar, some bread, some alcohol.
Taste is even better for me, boozy, with about the same aromas, also some musty fruits.
Full, creamy, fizzy mouthfeel and it finishes alcoholic, astringent, quite dry, fruity-sour, yeasty and a bit sweet malty.
Delicious! Greatly balanced, very complex, with loads of really interesting fruit notes and not too difficult to drink at the same time. Indeed a pretty perfect Belgian Strong Ale, that deserves the hype, independend of its rarity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to celebrate my first ratebeer anniversary. Pours hazy brown with diminishing fizzy head. Aroma has dried fruit, caramel and leather. Alcohol becomes apparant later. Flavour has more dried fruit and toffee held together by strong but warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is fizzy, quite high carbonation. Finish is boozy and slightly dry.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
330ml bottle poured in its own chalice.
Iíve kept this beers stored for almost three years before open it. Best before 7th of June, 2011. Consumed at 15th of March, 2012 in perfect condition. Completely alive beer :)
A: Pours a nutty brown color and a big light beige head. Fizzy and "alive" carbonation. Good retention, it never disappeared leaving a thin small bubbled head. No lacings and a lot of dark particles floating around
S: Very bready. Very yeasty. Fruity, but moderate on these regards. Caramel malts. Hints of roasted malts. Toffee. Hints of alcohol
T: Follows the nose: Brown breauud, caramel malts, toffee, dark fruits, Belgian yeasts. A bit sweet upfront and a very moderate bitterness. Alcohol sensation
M: Medium creamy and bit molasses body. Moderate carbonation
O: Honestly: Fantastic beer! Despite of the hype around Westys, thereís no way to deny that, this is a just another perfect beer made by the Sint Sixtus monks

Wow, this is a great beer. I actually prefer this to the 12. Amazing balance of incredible flavours, itís really hard to pin down, almost tastes like there is malt wheat in here. Definitely worth trying if you can get hold of it.
