Bottle 2013 vintage. Pours an amber color with a decent head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of malt, fruits, some pine and spice with bit of caramel. Taste of malt, some caramel sweetness, citrus, with some fruit and spice in the background. Subtle bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, smooth with a nice bit of malty character. Nicely balanced as the there is no hint of the 7% ABV. Nice beer for the style.

A 2010, properly cellared bottle poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with a thin off-white head that left light lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, light stone fruit and mild oxidation. Flavor begins subdued dried light stone fruit, and light caramel, but the caramel intensifies towards the finish revealing bready malt and more intense stone fruit flavors, mildy buttery. Medium bodied. I took brief notes on this when I bought it fresh and they reveal that I was not too impressed with it, finding the flavors pleasant but underwhelming. I have been skeptical about the claim on the bottle that it would age for up to five years. I'm not in doubt now, this has turned out quite nicely. Still somewhat restrained, but the light fruit fruit flavor of the young beer have not so much intensified as become deeper, like dried fruit. Quite enjoyable and I will certainly age this one again if I see it.

Had at lunch at Harry Caray's; poured into glass from bottle. One of the best beers I've ever had. Hazy orange/copper color, spicy yeast fragrance. 2nd beer as good if not better, I don't get to enjoy this enough it was as expensive as a dram of single malt scotch whisky. A must try.
