la folie, vintage 2007, bottle # approaching the 1000th, corked & caged -- from the bridge in St. Louis

The beer pours a hazy, dark rusty brown with a loosely carbonated tan halo of head. The nose presents notes of sherry/oxidation, fresh string beans, a slight sweetness, and intense funk. The taste is distinctly oud bruin with a subtle cherry sweetness, oak and a petri dish's worth of funky culture. There is very little acetone or alcohol present and it drinks balanced. Smooth, well-carbonated, with an initial sweetness that transitions into a woody, tart, very dry finish. For $20/750ml (bar price nonetheless)...I should have ordered another bottle!
