look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a very dark brown with mild head that leaves good lace. Carbonation is exquisite.
S: Very strong in the nose. Crisp green apples and a nice sugary malt with hints of orange peel and cinnamon. Plum, apricot and fig linger. Very pleasant.
T: A tart bite followed by a nice sugary sweetness. Raisins and brown sugar. Tastes lighter than it looks. The alcohol is definitely noticeable and is complemented quite well between the tart fruit and sweet malt.
M: Just about perfect for me. Light and sufficiently full with a crisp but bubbly, champagne effect. Very nice.
D: This is a very drinkable Belgian. You can definitely taste and feel the alcohol but for such a high ABV the quaffability is superb. I could easily down a bomber of this beer on my own over a meal. Its so light and sweet. Really a pleasure. A little pricey, but probably worth having again for a special occasion.

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.
