look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

5 year old bottle kept refrigerated.

Appearance: Murky brown glass, holds a thin head.

Aroma: Purple grape jam, Belgian yeast, grainy wheat.

Taste: Mellow fruity base, yeasty banana note, rum soaked raisins, mild cola note.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, warm alcohol, dry finish.

Overall: Held up really well. No off flavors or aromas, probably mellowed out a lot, it's likely over 5 years old, it has the 2009 Gold medal winner award on the label. A nice cellar experiment, would try again.

This is my definition of what a Belgian-style beer should taste like. It has a nice head when poured on the right glass . The bouquet is subtle but magnificent at the same time. Extraordinary complexity in the flavors with a perfect, lingering fruity aftertaste. A perfectly balanced beer that should be in your arsenal at all times.
