Brown body with foamy white head that stays around. Yeasty aroma of cherries, caramel, herbal notes, and mild booze. Flavors evolve through caramel, herbal, medicinal, boozy counterparts, and a sweet cherry liquor. Wonderfully balanced. Medium body with light carbonation. Sweet and cloying.

330 ml bottle poured into a chalice glass. I am really glad to be finally trying the 6, two years after trying the 8 and the 10!

A - Pours a cloudy light-brown body. The head is frothy, though it won't last forever.

S - The first thing that I am getting is spices: cinnamon, aniseed. Then you get quite a bit of yeast and some light fruit notes.

T - The taste is not as intense as in this beer's "older brothers" or some other Belgian (and trappist) dubbels. However, it is quite complex, with bread, red grapes/wine, brown sugar notes and hints of raisins and anise. Not very sweet but quite yeasty overall; there is also some bitterness to it. I reckon that some red wine-like characteristics are likely to be picked up by some drinkers. Overall, this beer has a very interesting (you could say unique) taste; definitely not your typical dubbel. The first sip was a little disappointing, while the last sip made me wish I had more!

M - Fairly thin in body for the style. Plenty of carbonation and a bit of alcohol warmth. There is a certain spiciness about it that makes my palate excited.

O - I must say I was expecting more body and complexity (I must have been spoiled by Rochefort 8 and 10). However, this beer really opens up with subtle hints of different spices and develops a wine-like feel. I liked it, though I must say it probably is not the place to start if you are not very familiar with Belgian ales.

Light sweet aroma of caramel with a hint of warm alcohol amd just a touch of dark, burnt sugar. Light body, very highly carbonated. Light, hazy brown. Sweet, light caramel flavor with some alcohol warmth, a hint of dark, slightly burnt sugar and a hint of earthy hops. I think the bottle may have been fairly old.
