Pours somewhat cloudy with a finger or so of off-white, tightly packed, small bubbled foam. Retention is about right leaving a bit of wispy, sticky lacing.
Aroma, what you get as it was light, was nice. Belgian yeast lends some spice while there is candied Belgian sugar seemingly giving off some sweet molasses and dark fruits. Interesting.
Taste is molasses, pears, with a touch of alcohol on the back end. Dark fruits takes their place too.
Light end of medium body with with a medium, at best, carbonation. Dries the palate (oak conditioning).
Might be a little bit thinner than I expected for the style. It also brings to question the light nose lasting for another nine years to do the complete vertical; there isn't much to begin with. I like every aspect of this beer but it just needed to be ramped up. Enjoy!
