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

Date: 7/28/14
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: Auburn to brown red in color. With a head that is dark brown in color. The beer has some viscosity as it clings to the glass when swirled. A whisp of carbonation is all that remains after a quick swirling. Mostly clear with some yeast flakes that can be found at the bottom of the bottle.
Aroma: Light in most aromas. The souring yeast plays the biggest role. The cherries are present. There is a light astringency from the oak and the alcohol from the Bordeaux barrels are noticeable as well.
Taste: The beer is a little on the watery side. While I do get some of the expected tartness it's more faded then I would have imagined for a two year old. The Brett plays the largest role followed by the fruit. The Bordeaux barrels are quite nice as they provide mild amounts of oak, alcohol and a little grape.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is viscous as the wine barrel really seems to take over this aspect of the beer. The beer is medium to medium/light bodied with light carbonation on the tongue.

Notes: Batch #16 2012 Bottle #1365

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.

(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)
