Basement funk awesome. Aroma is unique and amazing. So much musty basement. Bottle is even musty looking. Hazy Orange still looking. Hella basement flavors tangy bone dry lingering funky basement. Carb is there and AIDS in the drying aspect. Tastes rare and old. Thanks bvc.

Dark golden pour. Menthol and fruit snacks in the nose, must. Taste is tart lemon, more citrus, leather, caramel. Exceeded my expectations, especially considering its age.

Bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015. Pours hazy orange golden with a small to medium off white head. Aroma has a beautiful funk, dry dusty cellar, cobwebs, light minty notes, light citrus and tart fruits. Flavour is light moderate sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Absolutely beautiful stuff, reminiscent of millennium geuze.

Bottle shared at the 5K/7.5K/10K tasting - who has a 7.5K tasting?, massive thanks to Jackl for this rarirty - I raise this glass to his 5,000, 30/12/14. Hazed orange amber with a big old off white head of bubbles - looks the proverbial bollocks does this! Nose is light dung, musty wood, straw, earthy, apple core, gentle poo in the form of a careless skidmark, big funky horse duvet etc. Taste comprises more apple core, light citric, dank wood, Grandads shed - the 3rd draw from the top in the far corner, musty grapes, light dry rot, wooded. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close filled with funk. Solid stuff for 16+ years old, lots of depth and character.
