Appearance - First pour yielded little to no head, which seemed strange. Other reviews suggest this is atypical. Has low amount of bubbles on surface after head subsided. Low to moderate levels of bubbles rising to surface.
Smell - Strong aroma of raisins and plum. Sweet and fruity. Very bold, like biting into half a dozen plums at once.
Taste - Very sweet. Raisin and plum flavors. Very earthy taste. Very sweet. Almost too much taste in each sip.
Mouthfeel - Compared to the Le Fin du Monde (same brewery) that I recently rated, carbonation is lower than its sister, however, overall carbonation is medium and even across the tongue. 9% ABV is hidden slightly by the body, which is more subtle than expected for a high ABV content.
Overall - I confess that I was expecting a more direct and 'up-front' experience with this beer. Knowing my expectations, I can give a more accurate response on this beer. Having the fruit aroma and taste to it, I am at a loss as to what or how else the flavor/aroma could be altered to suit my 'ideal' taste of this beer. Though I, personally, cannot handle the aroma/taste for long (about half a bottle), it is enjoyable (for me) up to that point.
I still have three more bottles. I might re-review if my experience and/or thoughts change on this brew.

The main thing that ticks me off about this beer is if it gets shaken in the very slightest way in a bottle it'll foam like a volcano when you open it...wasting most of the beer. It foams like crazy too! A slight shaking in any manner will make it seem like you opened a bottle of beer you JUST vigorously shaked like crazy! And it's not cheap so seeing it fuzz like crazy after a simple car ride and losing half a bottle is annoying!
