Notes/Commercial Description:
Vintage Monks is a blend of our Trappist inspired ales which have spent months aging in oak wine barrels. Each barrel imparts unique flavors of red wine, tart fruits and lovely funk. The blended result is a wonderfully complex ale that is beautifully balanced. Pairs well with tangy cheeses, rich meats, fried foods and fruit-based desserts. Formerly called: Barrel Aged Dancin' Monks.

Nice sweet tart (yes a bit of an oxymoron) aroma. Very fruity and light: raisin, prune, apricot... Nice. Flavor follows about the same with a nice oakiness (but not overbearing), very good sour, and mild funkiness. This, by far, is the best Adelbert's brew I've had yet. Previous beers have failed to live up, but this one delivers!

Poured a nice golden amber. A bit cloudy, head didn't last long, and not much lacing.

A fruity aroma. Over all a very pleasant nose.

Light on the tongue, light carbonation that fizzes in the mouth.

A bright flavor with a hint of tart, sour and oak.
