330 cl bottle dated "best before 14/4/10" poured in to a goblet.

Hazy golden color with a steady, sticky bright white head.

Sweet, light fruit is the dominant smell- apple and apricot. Some light peppery hops in the background.

Sharp initial pop from the carbonation and a sweet hoppiness. Warm alcohol and fruit also in the taste.

Not "hot", but the alcohol is present, which is expected in this high gravity brew. Way to go monks.

Well, finally had to order this one since I still haven't seen show up in our stores. This beer poured a cloudy gold color with some sediment present(but the road trip might account for that). If formed wonderful foamy/puffy white head that stayed the lace stuck to the edges like glue. You could white wash your walls with that stuff. A huge amount of carbonation was present, which may account for that. An aroma of malt, bannana and cloves. A flavor of malt, clove, bannanas and bread/yeast. A medium finish with slight hint of the alcohol present. Worth the trouble getting, but hopefully less toublesome in the future. Ohio needs to quit being ignored!
