Vintage 2011. Bottle #00276

Pours a rich amber, mahogany like color with a 1/2 inch eggshell white head that dissipates very quickly.

Smells of honey, sweet malt, and a slight sourness. Hints of citrus and ripe dates are present as well.

Tastes sweet to the tongue on the front end with a mild tartness on the finish. Quite pleasant aftertaste.

Great mouthfeel! A slight prickliness but the carbonation is very low. There is an amazing slickness on the tongue after sipping. VERY drinkable despite the 11% abv..aye too drinkable.

One of the greatest biere de garde styles I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. Holy mother of delicious! Very well balanced with a lot of flavor. I can't wait to try the other vintages!
