    This is a 2007 bottling and I flat out forgot I had it in my cellar. Does anyone have any idea how this is holding up, or do I now have vinegar? I will probably just open it and find out but was curious to see what the input was of BAs.

    I'd be interested in hearing about this too as I have a 2009 bottle.

    I've also found some of the old batches recently and they are holding up just fine. I think the body is a little light for the style, if I recall correctly, but the flavor is fine.
