N: Much more fruitier. Tangerine, mango and grapefruit. Some notes of vanilla and caramel in the background.
P: Tangerine and Mango show up but now are held up by some coffee, caramel, and figs. Nice and sweet.
F: Medium short finish, on coffee, and figs. Hints of caramel and tangerine hang around.
91 points. To me this comes down to preference. If you like sweet yet complext this is for you. If you like less sweet go with the St. Bernardus abt 12. I personally really like both. Both are at the top of my list so far. just edging Orval and Chimay Blue.

Just ok. Simple, and I don't really enjoy overripe oranges.
