My 100th BA review.
Served from a 375ml bottle into a Kriek Belle-Vue tulip. Vintage date is impossible to read.
Appearance- Dark purple/red/tawny color with very quick bubbly off-white head. Hold it up to a light and it's beautiful red.
Smell- Lemon vinegar, oaky vanilla, tart cherys, oaky funk. Beautiful smell. Oak is very prominent.
Taste- Very tart cherry up front soon gives way to vanilla and oak flavors. Mild musty funk comes through lightly. Cherry is prominent throughout. Finish is sweet and sour cherry. Phenomenal.
Mouthfeel- Very carbonated and crisp. Quite sour, but not overly puckering. Really great balance.
Overall- This is a beautiful beer. I wish I could drink this every day.
