Bottle. Nice funky lambic-y aroma. Initially this is fruity tartness, but there is an unexpected depth of flavor. Notes of raisins, fruit, vanilla. A very pleasant finish. Abv is hidden yet warms you to the core. Amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle marked 00276. For my 1,500th review I thought I would try a limited edition. The pour looks more like wine than beer with a reddish hue and virtually no head to speak of. The aroma has all the tart and red grape qualities of a sour ale with the faintest of malts. It is really sour on the nose. Medium body. The taste has an overwhelming sour grape character to it along with a sharp bite at the end that makes one wince (especially if you are not a regular sour ale drinker like me). For the style it seems to be a perfect fit.

On tap at the Lion’s Pride in Brunswick during our New England trip. Nose is red wine, dark fruits, lactic acid, mild oak, and a touch of toast. Flavor is nice with good acid and fruit through the background. At this age, however, I figured it’d be a bit smoother. Not quite as good as the 2011 that I’ve had on tap lately, and nowhere near where the 2006 is now.

Split with my wife in our NYC hotel. I like this trend.
Consumed August 27,2010
Poured assertively right down the center of the glass, there was virtually no head whatsoever. Hence, no lacing. I am neither surprised nor taken aback, as this is a high abv sour ale, after all. The color is a light copper shade and the beer is mostly clear. The aroma is funky, ala Flanders oud bruin. The beer tastes very nice, with an underlying sweetness that just manages to cut the tartness ever so slightly. The body is somewhat thin, and the finish is quite acetic and/or vinegary, though not astringent or harsh. This is a very tasty beer and definitely worthy of attention, though it is rather expensive.

Pours tea-like orange/brown color; thin sawdusty head. Smells like Avery’s Depuceleuse and Dyhos Dactylion, in the same vein. Tastes very similar too.
