This one was a part of cmrillo’s 40 Beers* @ 40 Birthday Bash! Shared by BRoss242! 2006 Vintage! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wood, tart, fruit, sour, and cherry. The flavor was of sweet malt, wood, fruit, and cherry. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. HOLY CRAP! I never thought I would see this one! Massive thanks again Billy! It was definitely worth the wait on this one as it really reminded me of the Sang Royale we had prior only the fruit profile I was begging for actually showed up. However, with the age on this one, a lot of the fruit profile had expired and faded quite a bit. Still nice of it to be there though. Really glad I finally got to try this one and if you have one, I would drink it soon.

no date, but I think this is probably about 2 years old. Courtesy of gregagee, a very generous trader.

A-Pours the color of Pennsylvania Dutch apple cider, hazy, with a few errant chunks of yeast. Small khaki colored head, soapy lacing.

S-Very unusual. Smells heavily of Smuckers grape jam. A subtle suggestion of tartness, not much else.

T/M-Body is more similar to a tripel than most wild or sour ales I've tried. There's a light fruit tartness up front, but it quickly fades out, revealing flavors more in line with an abbey ale. Estery fruit flavors, burnt white sugar. The cherry tartness comes out again in the finish, but not in a major way.

O-This is a mild wild.

Bottle. Poured into a Lost Abbey stemmed glass a clear, dark clear copper color with a 1 finger light tan head. Sweet caramel, spice, toffee, and slight acetone. Light/medium mouthfeel. A rich caramel flavor with some notes of barrel. Vanilla as well mixed with some dark fruit notes like dark cherry. This one isn’t overly sour by any means but has a nice lactic acidity that kicks in through mid drink and lingers for a bit. The ending has a nice blunt barrel and fruit flavor that draw it to a close. The abv it only slighlty noticeable in the end. Some lace. Very glad I got to try this one as I have been searching for it for a while.

Reviewed from notes taken on 1/4/10

A - pours a reddish chestnut brown with some nice foam that slowly dissipated

S - sweet cherries, oranges, and some oak dominate the aroma

T - oak dominates, with some cherries, wine barrel, oranges, lemon, apples and a bit of musty funk

M - good carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, slightly tart and that increases as it warms.

D - very drinkable, great flavor and i'll seek it out again.

Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some oak and very light acidic notes. Taste is a nice balance mix between some tart and oak notes with a very subtle acidic finish. Body is quite full for style with great carbonation and no alcohol was apparent even though I think the alcohol level is too high for the style. Not the most complex beer from this brewery but very enjoyable nonetheless.
