Pours a deep and clear orangish brown with a decent amount of creamy tan head that fades away fairly quickly, leaving a thin layer on top. Smells of yeast, raisins, cinnamon?, nutmeg?, orange, flowers.. Very complex, and very pleasant. The taste is also very complex and pleasant. It's very sweet, as it should be, and there's chocolate, raisins, some citrus, nuts, and the ethereal alcohol flavor you only really get from belgian style ales. Mouthfeel is very heavy and creamy. Overall, it's very drinkable for a quadrupel. Not something you can drink all day, but for a special occasion, it's an awesome beer.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
