330 ml bottle from STLWill - thanks again, Will! 2004 vintage. Pours a clear reddish tea color with a small off-white head. Notes of cherry, leather, musty basement, cobwebs, oak, and fruit jam. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a leathery, jammy mouthfeel. Not bad, given the age.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet...bottle gushed violently upon opening which surprised me greatly. Beer poured into a duchesse glass, color is ruby red with a coarse white head that fizzled away. Aroma brings sour funk, cherry, latex, lots of phenols, barnyard...complexity is high but the aroma is kinda faint. Taste is sour, sour, sour and then an underlying sweetness to back it up. Bitterness is evident and the finish is tart. Palate...thin bodied, co2 very high, not balanced but doesn’t need to be. The finish is great. Overall, aside from the explosion mishap the beer is quite good. Seems to be more lambic like than usual though and the violent gushing might indicate something is up. Who cares though, beer is great!
