Served in a footed glass at the Mikkeller Bar in SF.

A: Hazy golden brown. No head. No lacing.

S: Funk. Sweetness. Excellent.

T: Wow, this is amazing! Tart. Sweet. Fruity. Bright. Luscious fruit. Bordeaux. Absolutely incredible.

M: Tart and pleasant. Lovely and lively.

O: One of my all-time favorite sours. Highly recommended to all, but especially sour lovers.

On-tap at GBD in DuPont Circle, NW D.C., poured into a 10 oz. tulip glass (and only paid for the sample size...yeah!), drank 9/20/13 over a half-hour.

A: 3/3 - golden/yellow coloration, minimal clarity (cannot see through), initial one finger carbonation resolved into a subtle glass lacing throughout the drinking; low-to-moderate carbonation, moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - initially some mild grassy and barnyard flavors with mild breadiness; as the beer warmed, some of the vinous qualities started to arise from the Bordeaux barrel-aging and was much more pleasant smelling

T: 17/20 - on the anterior tongue, there was some wild flavors that battled it out with some fruity-estery qualities - lemon, apricot, green apple and pear; the middle profile featured some balancing malts yet remained dry; moderate alcohol flavors, which was appropriate at 6.0%

M: 4/5 - light-bodied and lower-than-anticipated carbonation makes it tart and refreshing but showcased the complexity without being ruled by fuzz

O: 9/10 - I was initially underwhelmed but started to be more impressed as the beer warmed, which started to feature the vinous qualities that I was looking forward to when ordered; the menu mentioned a co-brew with Stillwater, who have consistently impressed me with their collaborations with Belgian breweries, but I don't see them listed here; anyway, I definitely recommend this one as an exemplar of an aged Belgian golden

TOTAL = 43/50
