Bold burnt orange/mango skin cast with lots of activity within. Capped lightly with a fluffy thin beige foam that keeps a favorable skimming across the top as it sits. Not much lacing sticks, just a few spots here and there.

Aroma is bubble gummy with a candied, fruitified, tang of darkly fruity things like golden raisin, star fruit, pear, and plum.

Taste is damn smooth and very nice with a lot of dullish fruity tang and a candied sweet center. A big fruity mix that's blended together wonderfully with apricot, pear, golden raisin, star fruit, plum, and a pinch of blood orange bitterness. Its sweetness stays centered and true with welcoming Belgian candied yeasty bubble gummed effects all across its malt spine and ribs. Spiced lightly with a touch of fruit peels, clove, and floral touches.

Moderately bold and fairly full body entranced into one super soft and smooth tone that has just enough flair of carbonation and bite. Malts are lay of the land here while the candyness adds an extra yummy factor to its overall chewyness. V-Twelve is apparently 12%? Not sure where it is, but I'm sure it'll show up once the 750 has emptied.

Wow, way better then I remember this being from many years ago when this first dawned my fridge. A victory for Victory for keeping this stuff around. Yum!
