Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

a: Translucent dark amber with a finger thick white head receding to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Strong ripe fruit.

t: Follows the nose. A blend of ripe banana and apricot. The taste is so strong it is almost medicinal. But that covers the high ABV well, but you do get a sense of it under the yeasty flavors. Surprisingly dry finish.

m: Moderate, good body.

o; The flavor is definitely the strongest Belgian yeasty esters I have had.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750 ml bottle best before 04 2016.

Appearance- Dark brown/Orange brown when held up to the light. Large white head that quickly dissipates to a fine layer of foam that sits on top all the way down.

Smell- Banana, toffee, alcohol.

Taste- Like Xmas pudding, fruity and alcoholic some banana taste lingering . Quite dry which makes you want to sip more.

Mouthfeel- Medium Mouthfeel, not overly carbonated.

Overall- I've tried this beer about half a dozen times and the bottles do vary. The older bottles are more fruity, tasty and the newer ones more "alcoholic". This bottle was fairly young and could be kept for a couple of years and the flavours would become more complex. Overall a potent enigmatic brew (like the type of beer I imagine druids drinking) . And at $8.50 N.Z for a 750 ml bottle not to be sneezed at.

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours light reddish brown with an off white head, a little cloudy. Smells of very nice fruit bouquet and some Belgian yeast. Tastes of berries with nice barley aftertaste, very thick and a tad bit of alcohol. Beer is full bodied sipper, lightly carbonated. Overall, a very good beer.
