An update! A month and a half later I decided to try one, to see if it was any better. The sourness is gone! Hurray! 3 months of cool weather seemed to have fixed it.

The Westvleteren is batting at about 80% of what it had been; aroma is there, but the flavor doesn't have the strength it did, nor the finish. Still a wonderful tasting ale however.

Thank you all again for the responses.

That's wierd.. I wonder if it was "skunked" from light exposure... Think Heineken.. did it taste like that skunked crap?


Does anyone know if the skunked-ness will go away with age?

It was not skunked from light exposure. It never was in direct sunlight, and was always in bottles. This was entirely a heat issue.
