375ML bottle, stored upright since purchase in May at 38F. Split 2 ways in Teku glassware.

A – Dark reddish brown, wood-like color, 2 finger cream brown head. It’s fully carbed but not intensely, good whisp of air on cap pop w/o gushing.

S – It smells like an ultra-aged Rodenbach Grand Cru Vintage with musty old grape, wine, citrus and apples.

T – Very nice! I honestly don’t get any oxidation at all. Cherries, cinnamon, cardamom and apples. A ton of oak presence but not overpowering, ashy, or gross flavors. I honestly really like this a lot. wine is well integrated, everything is just balanced.

M – lightly carbonated even on a hard swish, has a dessert wine like oily-ness

O – Highly enjoyable. I would believe this was 24-36 months in a barrel. The fact that this spent 50 months in a barrel is absurd and hardly believable. This is possibly the best Flemish Red incarnation I’ve ever consumed. Fantastic work. One of my favorite styles (when done right).
