look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle (batch #16 2012) to fantome tulip

A: It is a reddish brown dark copper color with little no head but a medium lacing whitish brown in color. It has noticeable high carbonation and is dark to semi opaque but not too cloudy or clean either.

S: You can definitely tell it spent some time in barrels as the oak is fairly strong but in a good way. There are wine like dark fruit scents similar to red wine grapes or dark cherries. You can definitely tell its been naturally fermented but does not really have any funk on par a flanders though.

T: It is slight sweet and tart up front with a fruit juice flavor that is fairly complex it does have wine like aspects but it is sleigher. There are some sour hints but they are not nearly strong enough though it seems they could come out more with age. It is not necessarily a distinct flavor but overall it is very earthy, not like dirt or funk (as there is none of that) but spice wise the time in the barrels is noticeable here. Pretty solid overall would like to see how it develops

M: In terms of feel this is very juicy and smooth as it goes down very easy for 8%abv it is similar to watered down wine in terms of feel. The carbonation is nice, light and champagne like but not nearly as bubbly it matches the style though. The finish is crisp light and clean which adds to its drinkability.

O: Overall I like this beer its really solid to style with good flavors and easy to drink. That being said I defiantly want to see how it can develop with a few years on it as it was not very sour and a lot more juicy then tart. If it develops how I think it could it could make this beer a lot beer, but for now its good but tacking in some aspects especially in strength of taste though the feel is pretty good. I would recommend this is worth a try if you can get it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #16 vintage 2012 bottle 4549.

A deep garnet red in the glass with a classic dark brown mahogany color, even a dark orange towards the lip of the glass. Not much head, what is is about a light tan one finger head, but it's creamy and the puck always sticks around. Pretty solid.

This is a real interesting nose. Great woody and oak aromatics, splinters and hints of beef jerky. Earthy soil bent. Tart mild malt qualities, and soft vanilla like sweetness. Incredible aroma, hints somewhere between creme brulee and sharp clove like cinnamon. Wow, incredibly impressive and complex. Wonderful stuff.

Palate just sings. Mouthfeel is creamy with a hint of light body and easy coating malts. Minimal tartness but a good mix of astringency lime quality and a chewy strangely pine hop in here somewhere. Malty mix of mild sour cherry quality and light vanilla. Unlike any other Flanders style I've ever had.

This beer needs it's own category. Truly a unique and wonderful creation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

(bottle of batch 057 - 2012? - poured into a Bourgogne de Flanders stemmed glass)

A: very clear, dark purplish-red... very little foam on the pour - seemed to tumble itself down into the beer while pouring... fairly standard, I suppose

S: decent bit of barrel overtone - fresh wood, perhaps a touch of vanilla deep underneath... dark, dried fruit - cherry, grape skin - but not quite bright or sweetish... the often vibrant almost citrusy/flowery tones in other examples seemed very toned down here

T: dark, bruised fruit - mellow blend of cherry, red grape... vinous overtone... not sweet in the least, actually remarkably dry - mellow, polished tartness... vague hint of mocha in the aftertaste

M: thinnish, dry... tight, compact roundness up front - drops away like a shadow shrinking into a corner... no residual malt viscosity... carbonation is near nil, feels still

O: not bad coming from Italy... one of the more delicate, subdued examples of the style... obviously well made, but lacking life a little... reminded me most of a darker-tasting Rodenbach (Grand Cru)
