From 22 oz bomber to Duvel tulip glass

Batch 26, bottled May 2011

Probably past it's prime, but still holds up pretty well. Not picking up a lot of 'brett' aspects or off-kilter flavors, so I'll have to look for a fresh on and compare notes. Still, pretty damn drinkable. The specs:

The brew is apricot-tan in color, opaque, with little head to speak of, although the beer may be a little too cold.

The nose is citrusy, with notes of lemon pepper and rind. Touches of funk, but it's more floral and grassy than barnyard-y. Might be picking up a touch of oxidation in the bouquet.

Not picking up any stale flavors though, pretty impressive how well this has held up given the relatively low abv. Notes of lemon grass and a caramelly sweetness play off a floral backdrop and oak tones. Surprisingly little funk, as a hint of booze kicks in toward the back of the sip. Finish is long and sweet.

Could use a little more carbonation to break up the sweetness, but again, may have gone past its bottle-conditioned prime and has lost some CO2.
