11.2 oz brown bottle with the year 2003 on the back label.
Appearance: Medium foaming off of a hard pour, wonderful rimming of Brussels Lace over the slightly weathered golden hue.
Smell: A bit tart with suggestions of cherries and a bit vinous as well. Faint oaky woodiness mingles with the grain, very aromatic in a mildly pungent way.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Lip smacking tartness upfront subsides as soon as the palate becomes accustom to the level of acidity. Oak flavours draw the mouth towards dry yet there is just enough sweetness from the grain to meld with the tartness for a sweet-tart juicy middle. Hints of earthiness show a complex yeast. Faint sherry character as the warmth of the alcohol becomes more apparent with its slightly ester profile. Finishes with more wood on a dry note.
Notes: A beautiful beer, as the beer caresses the mouth the tartness awakens the taste buds. Very refreshing and a perfect pair to a simple goat cheese. This beer is not for quaffing, sip and savour every drop.

330ml bottle. Wide Flute glass. Gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a close crown & leaves a wide ring on sides. Well balanced aroma profile displays sour citric & wood notes, spices & sugary hues on the backside. Gentle malty upfront is blowed up by sharp & intense tartar flavor. Light body. Soft carbonation. Spiced, dense & sour palate. Fruity touches in the middle resolve in a kind astringency from lemon & grapefruit rounded by memories of grape tannins. Long sour finish yields to a fruity & spiced aftertaste. ABV is just felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Refreshing & flavorful.
