4.55/5 rDev +0.9%
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.

4.33/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
