look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottled 07/09/07.

Consumed from Duvel tulip.

A - murky brown, head retention almost nonexistent, foam creeped out of bottle a couple minutes after opening

S - cherry, vinegar, tiny bit of funk, caramel, brown sugar, figs

T - sour, fruity, tart. Belgian base comes through. Dry finish. Some faint cough syrup. Balsamic vinegar.

M - good bit of alcohol burn on front of tongue but booze creeps up on you. Despite the foaming, not much carbonation. Coats mouth with that lingering tartness.

O - this was my white whale after drinking one fresh a few years ago and not realizing that some aging could do it some good. Love the sour and tart character this takes on. Beyond 6 years could accentuate the vinegar qualities. Belgian base readily apparent. 5 years out is probably prime time.
