January 2007 release.
Decided to finally open this bottle after having a couple glasses of Orval. It seemed to be a logical progression somehow.
Body is a high-clarity amber orange, tinted the color of clover honey. A few lazy bubbles work their way into ascension. Once the bottle was opened at cellar temperature, it foamed, and weakly threatened to gush. Into a tulip glass it foamed up to the brim, then rapidly faded to a skim. Not alot of lacing or great head retention, but the color is nice.
Cheesy, mildly wild aroma. Celery, damp stones, soft ripened cheese at first.
Complex flavors, buttery cheese, vaguely fruity, straw, wild yeast definitely. It's on the restrained end of the wild spectrum, but lends enough to make it interesting (with the odd band-aid note). Honey and pear in the aftertaste. Not getting much sourness or even tartness. Very well balanced and integrated overall. I'll be getting another one of these for a special occasion, I just had to see if it lived up to the hype, and it does. For fans of wild Belgians, Saisons, etc.
I'm guessing this would pair well with a blue cheese, or Morbier and pears.

Aroma- A fruity sour wine aroma dominates the nose, with notes of spicy and musty brett.
Mouth feel- Dry on the tongue and lite in body feels like lots of carbonation.
Appearance- Hazy Light auburn in color with a hint of red. Off white head.
Taste- Dry fruity start lots of cherry other pit fruits (plum) with a tart sour cherry finish. No hop flavor and it was hard to taste much else over the tartness of the beer. If you didn't get it in the first couple sips your taste buds kinda only get the tart flavor.
This beer is good a glass is really nice and refreshing but not something I would have a lot and get drunk off of.
Serving type: on-tap
