Bottle, 6 months old. Aged for 1000 days before bottling. Deep dark gold with a fine, sturdy, low head. Aroma of honey, fruits, like a well-aged tripel. Oxidized, mellow, fruity flavor with lots of honey, bread, citrus, present alcohol, pears, and herbs. Some grassy hops as well as a nice lingering bitterness. Basically tastes like the aged triples from Belgium I have had. Nice, though I would have liked to try it fresh, as most triples are better fresh. Very authentic Belgian yeast character.
