look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured into Chimay chalice from a 750ml Cork & Cage labeled best by May 2013 (Just a few weeks left on this bad boy)
A: Pours a hazy copper with a tight head that dissipates and lightly laces.
S: Had to work hard to pick up anything. Lemon is there and light caramel barely present, and slightly sour
T: Not sure if my bottle has turned, but this tastes like a flemish sour, like Bell's Oarsman. Funky, pleasantly sour, slightly metallic, citrus up front. Develops on the palate to an apple-like sweetness and hints of oak and caramel.
M: Nicely carbonated, but this beer feels a bit oily.
O: Based on other BA's reviews I think my bottle has developed into something different from what was originally there. Regardless, I thought it was a definite winner, perfect for a warm spring day. I found that each sip invited the next, and I enjoyed it more as it developed on my palate. Will look for a fresh one in the future to see how different it tastes.
