4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by Huhzubendah. Vintage 1999. Thanks Matthew! Poured a really hazy light orange color, maybe just dark yellow. Yeah, let’s go with that. Aroma was lots of fizzy Super sour, surprisingly for being so old. The sour character is really rounded out though. Very nice. Tart. Solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! A very special 1999 vintage bottle stored well and poured into a tulip glass showing dark cloudy apricot with quickly dissipating foam.
The nose shows light, mellow, and balanced bretty and acetic notes with light oak.
The palate is lightly carbonated and medium bodied. High but balanced tartness with light apricot and a lot of tart apricot on the finish.

Bottle shared by Keir - thanks again, Keir! 1999 vintage. Pours a super clear bright orange earlier, and it gets murkier later. No head. Aroma of leather, cheesy funk, oak, rubber cement, vegetals and florals, and some apple skin. Flavor of lemon, leather, oak, tart apples, wood, and vinegar. Very tart. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, very tart mouthfeel. Pretty impressive for the age. Really glad I got to try this one.
