2007 vintage. Last of my bottles from '07 DLD.
Poured into my Brooklyn chalice.
Big carbonation pop when the cork was pulled. Decent off white head crowding the top of my glass. Murky reddish brown body.
Nose of sour apples, vinegar tartness and barnyard funk. Not much else is getting past that. Some wood, but muted. Maybe because it's a 3+ year old bottle.
Tart and oakey on the tongue. Like crab apples, but sweeter. Quite acidic and very dry. Complex.
Medium mouthfeel. Tough to get a 750 down, even split 2 ways. Still a great beer, but 10 oz is enough for one sitting.
