look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours an amber-reddish brown with a gorgeous, lacy head. Its look is appetizing. Lacing around my Abbey de Leffe goblet; beautiful orange hues towards the bottom of the glass.
S - Equally appetizing. Biscuits, malts on the initial whiff and further investigation reveals scents of alcohol and fruity esters.
T - Coconuts. Creamy, milky and sweet right on the palate; finishes with a bitter, hoppy flavor. I'm tasting coconuts though, all throughout the mouthful, not the candied kind, but real coconut meat. Very alcoholic finish. Delicious!
M - Smooth, creamy and refreshing all at once. Feels great resting in the mouth.
D - Moderate ABV. Split with friends before trying to finish one of these on your own, or start off with it so it doesn't do you in. In this case, I wouldn't drink more than one by myself.

have a few of these in the cellar, time to break one out and see what's what...
2 fingers of snowy white head, sticky sticky sticky, this one leaves a bread crumb trail all the way down leaving no doubt where it has been, ample carbonation keeps the head well fed, lovely microbubble sheets roll around, nicely done, this is one good lookin' brewski
citrus and wood... who would have guessed? your first instinct is hops but the wood is definitely toning it down and adding something, there is a mellow booziness throughout, old orange rind, the nose is interesting but I don't love it, the hop florals kind of smelling like termite wood.
strange.. the flavor is of ashen wood with some bitterness, it is exceptionally smooth mouth wise but the flavor is throwing me a bit, some dark honey notes, there is just something off I can't quite place my finger on, perhaps this sat too long (bottled 7/2009).
this has lost it's kick imo, without a more assertive hop profile this kind of tastes like soaked wood, too bad, the look and feel of the brew is excellent.
