Looks like you may have just undershot the DME a bit. Rough estimate, but 1/2 cup DME is probably around ~80 grams, in a 2L starter that would only give you a gravity of about 1.015.

First pitch Roesalare can be notoriously slow. My experience has been that at 6 months it smells nice, but isn't sour. Between the 12-18 month mark it does great things.
