3.75/5 rDev -8.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Tried this beer last night with dinner. I don't think I paired it very well, would have been better on its own. At any rate, it poured a nice caramel color with a head that quickly disappeared. The smell was sweet.. of sugar, honey, grapefruit, peach, and maybe cinnamon. Taste was much like Unibroue's La Fin Du Monde.. almost an exact match! It was highly drinkable.. taste was of honey/sugar, caramel, raisin, clove, and had some "Belgain" spice to it. It changed somewhat as it warmed. It was good, I'd have it again.

4.4/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a small goblet.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/8 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly side patch of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.
S- It could be the incorporation of the four different yeast strains but this smells like it might be tart/sour. Slight booze fume.
T- Nevermind. No sourness, just some awesomely smooth Belgian candi sugar plus some vanilla and caramel notes. Incredibly drinkable for the ABV. Butter, burnt sugar, not very bitter. Also a bit of dark fruit.
M- Slightly zesty. Medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Haven't had this in so long and it's really a crime that I don't purchase it more often.
Edit: No, it was not intentional that I gave this beer a score of 4.4 but yes, it is awesome.
