From tasting notes. 750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy copper gold with a very sudsy, persistent and lacy off-white foam collar.
S: Perfumey, funky, over ripe fruit, light malts and a variety of pitted and tropical fruits. T: Starts rich and malty immediately followed by fruit from ripe to over ripe, passion fruit and a hint of guava. A dash of horehound in the middle and traces of some other spices. Slight lemony tartness.
M: Has the creamy soft Brett texture with fine soft bubbles and medium body.
O: A nice showcase for Brett flavors and textures.

From 750ml bottle Vintage 2008 into 12oz Tulip Glass.

Poured with a 1/2" head that was tight and stayed around, still having a thin head halfway through. Very nice moderate lacing.

Color was deep golden with mild effervescence and a very clean appearance.

Nose was straight up funk with mild apple undertones.

Taste was not as funky as first smell but still nice barnyard base with dried apple, soft leather and mild tobacco flavors. A touch sweet but still maintained some hop bitterness at finish.

Very nice, rich(for this style) mouthfeel that finished fairly dry.

As the beer warmed to nearly room temperature funk grew more prominent in the flavor and it began to take on slight sour aroma and taste in the finish.

This beer aged beautifully, getting better with each vintage, sorry to say this was my last 08. A real pleasure.

750ml bottle: This one pours a fairly opaque amber color. There was about no head on mine, nor any lacing. Nice nose: bring on da funk! Nice whiff of sour fruits, along with some spices. Earthy notes too. The taste is quite good. Sour fruits dominate the flavor. Some bitterness trying to come up through. Hint of breadiness. A nice beer!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; best before 4/21/2012 date on the cork. No pop upon releasing the cork, flat beer. Pours a very hazy reddish orange color with no head. A minimal lace cap does eventually show up that lingers; with minimal glass lacing. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, grape, wood, leather, clove, cardboard, toast, and yeast earthiness. Unimpressive aromas with decent balance and complexity; moderate oxidation makes this a bit unpleasant. Taste of caramel, pear, apple, grape, golden raisin, toast, brown sugar, leather, light wood, cardboard, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, leather, brown sugar, cardboard, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Decent flavor balance and complexity; with moderate oxidation flavors and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. Nearly zero carbonation and medium bodied; with a slick and creamy mouthfeel that is decent. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a poor Belgian golden ale due to the oxidation and lack of carbonation. Decent complexity and balance of flavors; but the oxidation makes it unpleasant. I had to drain pour this one, not enjoyable.
