Vintage bottle opened jan/17
A- nice copper color with light head
S- slightly wheaty smell with an odd white grape smell.. fruity sweet.. ages well..
T- starts off with a strong caramel works its way to a light wheat and ends with a surprisingly smooth boozy flavor..
M- smooth, creamy, great aged mouthfeel with light to no carbonation
O- great Belgian style ale ages well and was way better than expected

2013 vintage purchased 6/13...poured 5/16.
A - normal, straw color with 1/2 inch white head, no lacing and minimal retention.
S - Mild sweet/sour mallt, only a hint of hops.
T - Non-dominant Belgian flavor accompanied by a good blend of slightly sweet malt and well-balanced, but generally lighter, hops. A great American interpretation of a Belgian Strong Ale. Alcohol is well masked (vs. 2014 tasting, which was still a bit hot). I have to believe the 2013 is peaking or n ear peaking about now.
MF - Just right for this style. Definitely lacking, but clean...just the right viscosity.
O - I wish I had shared this with others. Three years really made a difference. No longer hot. For my liking, a subdued Belgian yeast flavor. But, top of class.

Bottle share thanks to Steve. Edging towards sour, tart and tangy. Medium amber, soft soapy head. Soft yeasty notes. I wish it went more solidly in one direction, than trying to span genres.

Poured from cellared bottle, burnt orange with fluffy white head. Scent of malt, spice, citrus. Flavor is spicy, clove, banana, malt with unique citrus and boozy backbone. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel.
