On draft at Dutch's (served in a snifter). Looks decent, although there's no head or carbonation to speak of. Smells good; nice and tart. Tastes good too; the age has helped marry all of the flavors together. Mouthfeel is the weakest link; very pedestrian. This is mostly due to the lack of carbonation. Overall, a privilege to get to try, but slightly disappointing (just because my expectations were so high). I'm not a fan of flat sours.
Serving type: on-tap

4.5/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
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.
