2012 bottle just received yesterday.
Poured into Lost Abbey tulip.
A: Brilliant reddish pink color with a fingers worth of pink effervescent head. Head settles into thin outter ring with spotty lacing where it once sat.
S: Aroma is multi-layered. Initially there is a grand waft of brett must, a nice example of that that "barnyard" essence. Then comes the lactic sour bite, followed by tart blueberries. The aroma from the blueberries reminds me of the skin of a grape, which I suspect comes from the barrel treatment giving it a minute oak/wood characteristic.
T: The flavor profile is spot-on in my opinion. The blueberries are very juicy and satiable. Slightly sour, but nevertheless. . . Tart. A bit of oak comes through, complimented by a touch of vanilla through the end.
M: Very bubbly at first, but as it calmed down, the mouthfeel got a lot smoother. As it sat, it got a tad oily/slick, which went well with the vanilla end. Relatively thin overall.
Overall: excellent brew. This thing stared me down until I opened one and I am very glad I broke down. Definitely going to order a few more.
