750ml bottled 07/09/07.
Consumed from Duvel tulip.
A - murky brown, head retention almost nonexistent, foam creeped out of bottle a couple minutes after opening
S - cherry, vinegar, tiny bit of funk, caramel, brown sugar, figs
T - sour, fruity, tart. Belgian base comes through. Dry finish. Some faint cough syrup. Balsamic vinegar.
M - good bit of alcohol burn on front of tongue but booze creeps up on you. Despite the foaming, not much carbonation. Coats mouth with that lingering tartness.
O - this was my white whale after drinking one fresh a few years ago and not realizing that some aging could do it some good. Love the sour and tart character this takes on. Beyond 6 years could accentuate the vinegar qualities. Belgian base readily apparent. 5 years out is probably prime time.
