This beer has been aging in my cellar since February of 2008 and is batch #1. poured into my Ithaca Excelsior tulip glass.
A- Upon initial pour there is a nice frothy head made up of millions of tiny little bubbles. Carbonation is evident due to the champagne like bubbles racing towards the surface. Color is golden straw with perfect clarity; very nice looking beer.
S- The smells seemed to have melded over time and is difficult for me to pick them apart, but I do recognize a saison like aroma that seems very familiar. Earthy or slight mustiness with just a touch of lemon rind is also present with what I believe is brettanomyces buried behind it all.
T- Flavors have melded nicely and also seem more prominent now rather than when I tried this beer fresh. No alcohol taste is present and there is a very nice dry finish , almost Orval like but lighter.
M- Light to medium body with a nice amount of carbonation, no residual sweetness and a dry finish, very refreshing.
D- This one is very easy to drink and has held up to aging quite well. For 8% alc I really can't taste it and will finish bottle by myself...!
