I didn't like belgians, until this one.
This baby pours, literally, diarrhea brown. no seriously, it looks like the toilet water after a night of WAAAY too many beers. however, once you get that image out of your mind, the look is not all that bad, and a nice foamy tan head graces the top. the smell is wonderful: burnt brown sugar, candy/fruit sweetness.
The flavor really is great. apple-cideresque with hints of other, darker fruits and a sugary sweetness. burnt maltiness in the finish that leaves you reaching for another sip. the belgian yeast blends nicely with these flavors and doesn't overwhelm them as it does, in my opinion, with so many other belgians.
full-bodied and smooth on the palate with truly wonderful drinkability.

ever since reading about Trappist beers, I've always wanted to get my hands on one. being that I come from a long line of priests and a bishop, it made the style even more intriguing. I figured I would never find one, at least in my area. well, I took a trip to ocean city, MD and made a stop at Anthony's with the intent on finding a bottle of something new. sitting on the top self was a bottle of the Trappist beer 2nd on my list, don't think I will ever see a westvletern XII. I couldn't wait to get home and try it! I poured it into a silver goblet used by my grandfather (who was a bishop). all I can say about this beer is it is truly amazing....everything about it! definitely at the top of my list. there's beers out there on my favorites that are based a lot off of my personal drinking experience. For instance, erdinger because of the one I had in a small bar in Munich that opened my mind to German beers and even rolling rock (yeah, its a favorite) because it reminds me of my grandfather. however, this beer is my number one solely on taste, can't imagine there's a better beer out there.
