April 2010 bottle.
Appearance: Bottle gushed upon opening (First time ever happening for me... very strange). Poured into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. Lots of residual yeast. Head is tall and sticks around a long time. bubbles are big and bright. Beer itself is like murky puddle water. Shades of brown and orange.
Smell: Quite complex. I don't detect the coriander as the label suggests. Spearmint, sage, rosemary, sea salt are some of the spices I can pick out though. Lots of fruity esters; on the lighter side of the scale. Apple and pear. Oak and funky earth tones also present.
Taste: Lots more oak in the taste and the hops are more present as well. Minty fruity, and I think I find the coriander on the finish with the oak and hop bite. Quite funky and barnyardy. Sour? Not a great deal of sourness. Finish is very long and a bit soapy tasting; points deducted there.
Mouthfeel: Would have liked this to be drier, but the body is just right.
Overall: Very interesting and recommended, might be better fresh though. It's Unclear what two years has done to this.
Serving type: bottle
