I entered this in an upcoming contest on 10/20 & it has a few fans so I thought I'd post it.
UPDATE: This beer was split into 2 batches (one with a starter & one a direct pitch of the vial). I'm proud to report the starter side placed 2nd & the vial side placed 3rd (in Belgian & French Ale) in the recent Las Vegas SNAFU Memorial Competition.
