750ml bottle split with my awesome wife.
Served in a Duvel trulip
A - Pours reddish browm with a small off-white head, speckled lacing down the side of the glass. A collar forms around an island of thin foam.
S - Sour lactic fruits, tart plumbs, cherries, sour apples, orchard fruit, bruised strawberry fruit, lemons, old dank wood, sweet/tart candy aroma, day old dried up wine like in the bottom of glass the next morning.
T - Sour fruit smacks the taste buds, granny smith apples, vinous green grapes, lemons, sweet tart candy, unripened strawberries, pixie candy, woody, old sour wine, the lactic sourness clings to the tongue, in the background is old shoe leather, basement wood, creamy and sweet aged malt, brown sugar and vinegar mix in to the sourness creating a sublime sweet a sour character. Finishes lactic and dry with dried fruit on the aftertaste.
M - Light feel with effervescent carbonation, tart and tongue wickingly dry.
This exceeded my expectations. This is the cream of the crop for the style. It has precise lacto sourness backed by an old and deep malt background, sublime yeast character creating a beautifully melded Flanders. This should be opened on special occasions. A rare treat.

2011 barrel 95. 750 ml bottle. The beer is a moderately hazy amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has strong dry wine notes and remind me a lot of port. Berry fruit notes come through with mild acidity. Tartness is well balanced with sweetness. Medium body. Soft, spritzy mouthfeel, and moderate carbonation.

Muddy brown color with tan head. Aroma has intense balsamic vinegar notes with fermented fruits and some malt in the background. Taste starts sour and acidic but also has malt sweetness with caramel notes. Medium body with high effervescence, quite dry on the aftertaste. A really true to style beer with complex flavors.
