2012 vintage poured into my HF wine glass. Been sitting on this for a while and decided to give it a whirl.

Appeared a clear, golden yellow color with a modest white head that dissipated relatively quickly, leaving minimal lacing on my glass.

Smells of Belgian yeast, slight tart lemon and cherry notes. Smells quite balanced.

Taste is amazing. Light Belgian flavors mixed with a bit of sour funkiness. I love the subtlety of each flavor. Very approachable and refreshing.

Mouth feel is lively and refreshing. Shocked by the carbonation even after this long in the cellar.

Overall a delicious treat. Blew away any expectation I had. Went in not knowing really what to expect but coming away quite pleased! Yum!
