Poured from a bottle into a tulip. best by date of 08/26/15.
A- dark brown with hints of maroon in the light. Pretty dark, nice clarity. Small grey-tan head that lingers thin on the surface.
S- Huge vinegar, some serious acetic acid in this beer. Solvent-y, lightly burnt gingersnap cookie, wine-y. Very interesting nose.
T- Prickly acetic acid, oak, vanilla, cranberry cocktail, pinot noir, lactic acid, a little oxidation.
M- Medium-thin, prickly, acidity, medium carbonation, semi-dry finish.
O- Definitely a classic, great flavor profiles and complexity. Very enjoyable Flanders beer.

I really enjoyed this beer! It is very similar to Nostradamus, which is one of my favorites. As soon as you pop the cap off the bottle the sweer, malty, fruity aroma emanates from within. The beer pours a dark reddish brown, only slightly translucent when held to the light. There was a light tan head that held for a while and left lacing on the glass.
The flavor was very sweet and malty with a clear prune/plum flavor. Delicious. This is a heavy feeling beer, very filling, and better sipped. The beer is smooth and balanced as you drink.

Balsamic vinegar, cherry, fairly sweet and tart, slightly soy sauce. Finish of tartness and rich fruit lasts longer than expected, and a musty taste is eventually left behind. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Quite nice if you like vinegar, fairly complex.
