Picked this 2007 edition up in Buffalo. First glass pours a semi-clear dark brown/amber with little head. Second pour was a murky amber/brown with little head again. Tastes sour, with dark fruits, and slight oak coming through in the finish. You can't taste the booze, but you can tell its there with each sip. Not a bad beer overall consider its quite a few years old. Its a sipper, but its not harsh. Would love to try it fresh.
Picked up a coule 2007 vintage bottles. The first bottle caught me by suprise with the big alcohol percentage, so I wasn't quite prepared. The second bottle a few months later however, was tasting delicious. Pours a slightly cleark, murky amber brownish colour. The last pour was hazy with sediment at the bottom. Got about 3 glasses from each bottle. Tastes tart, with cherries and oak coming through with a nice sour mouthfeel. I love licking my lips after each drink of this. This beer aged incredibly well. can't believe I am drinking almost 6 year old beer! Good stuff, a bit pricey though.

Sampled from a 750 bottle purchased at The Beer Dispensary in Apex, NC. It was recommended to me by a friend in Belgium. 2012 with 8 notched out.
A - Deep copper with a hazy finish and a limited white head. A slow but steady rise of fine bubbles.
S - Wonderful tart and sour notes with some additional depth of oak, fruit and spices. Very inviting.
T - Loads of sour/tart flavors with great maturity, depth and variation. It's intense but not biting or harsh in any way. You get something different in every sip. The 11% alcohol is incredibly well hidden.
M - Good body with good substance yet it flows smoothly. A low to moderate carbonation.
O - A complex and intriguing beer! So glad I tried it.
