-* 11 month old bottle. Bottled on 5/11/11, poured into a Orval Chalice on 4/17/12.

A- Golden yellow body. 2 finger, creamy head with dips and hills which make it look like the Rocky Mountains. Retention was a 8/10 with decent lacing.
S- Mango, crushed bananas, hops in the background, candy sugar.

T- This is where this beer is unique and entirely isolated from its other Trappist friends. Oh so sweet throughout the whole sip, leaving an almost sweet/bitter finish. Finishes with a sour and bitter taste. Mangos, bananas, cracked pepper, candy sugar, bready and biscuity, finishing with a slight taste of booze. Well balanced.

M- Carbonation was surely tamed a bit in the 1 year this beer was kept in my basement. Medium bodied, with a clean, crisp and filling finish.

O- Westmalle has always had a special place in my heart. It's a beer to sit down, relax and just enjoy.
