750 mL bottle. Clear orange. Smells of oak, citrus, light herbals. Tastes of strong citrus and oak. Dried grass finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. At first, I really liked it, but it ended up not being as dynamic as the Blend 93. Still excellent.
Pours a clear amber color with a smaller, soon vanishing head, which leaves the drink entirely.
Smells of old, cherry infused oak, together with wet mushrooms and dusty leather. A glimpse of citrus adds a refreshing fruitiness to the aromas, complimented by a stale nuttiness and matured cheese.
Has a refreshing, well carbonated carbonation with a lighter, easy drinking body.
Drinks with a certain sherry smokiness, hints of matured, higher octane alcohol and an opposing lemony tartness among rich honey and smoky salami. Turns heavier on the oak then, with a fruity cherry spiciness and wet basement to it, subtle earth and lighter blue cheese. Finishes a little greener, heavier on the tartness with lemon zest and apple peel, which blend into truly old cherries and a lighter grape tartness, resulting in a long going, dry aftertaste.
Incredibly complex and well put together beer, with the barrel complimenting the Lambic by a unique sweet- and richness which is hard to come by.
