[1999 Bottle] shared by BDR at WtWBA ’10. Wow, raising the bar for the event this year! There’s a slight pop as the cork is removed, the bottom of which is covered with a millimeter layer of sludgy black mold. You know this is going to be good. Pours a clear gold with a thin ring of white bubbles. Aroma is hugely lactic and quite funky, lots of minerals as well. The flavor is insanely sour lactic acid, lemon and other citrus, and a bit of barnyard funk. The mouthfeel is just super lively - like drinking liquid crystals. Super bright and sparkling in the mouth, this is a superbly aged bottle. Absolutely bone dry.

Bottle at ct4 thanks to sliffy. Aroma of tartness, horse, cheese, and sour. Aroma tingled the back of my throat. Had a little citrusy aroma and flavor to it. A little overpowering in the sourness but still a pretty good beer.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sour as you could imagine, lambics are supposed to be tart, this is breathtakingly intense and overrides anything else the beer has to offer bar a bit of citrus and tannin. Its kind of cool at first, then becomes a bit sickening. Same goes with the flavour and body, waaay to sour for me, by far the most intense beer I’ve ever tried. As in the aroma, the sheer intensity of the lactic acid kills almost any character in the beer. A slight brett character and lime rind almost come though enough to mention. I love real lambics but this was just too much.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2007
99 bottle: Peachy amber colour, with a pale tan head. Very fresh acidic aroma. Very strong sourness, like sucking a lemon, it’s like this beer got more sour with age, I would not have guessd it was 7 yrs old, it was just so vibrant and fresh tasting.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2006
(1999 Vintage) Hazy orange, no head. Sour, yeasty, rubbery aroma with some notes of wood. Really sour and lemony. Some sweetness is sensible.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2010
1999 vintage. Bottle 641. 75cl. Pours a very cloudy orange with no head. Aroma is a sour burst (as soon as I uncorked it, the sour fruit blew me away from 3 feet away; the cork smelled awesome as well) of unipe sour fruits. Reminicent of the tart wild cherries picked from the unkept cherry tree in my childhood backyard. The flavor is very tart at first, then there are subtle orange fruits in the middle, followed by an intersting very dry finish of nothingness. Good carbonation for the age, medium viscosity. Very enjoyable. A lot fruitier than expected too. I didn’t know what to expect but I must say that I’m quite pleased by the experience. Overall, very good to excellent.

RBSG2005. Bouteille vintage 1992. Couleur jaune, apparence nuageuse et pleinement trouble. Évidemment pas de mousse. Intense acidité citronnée, vieille cave très humide et poussiéreuse. Tartrique, sûre et acidité toujours très prononcée en bouche, début de madérisation et aussi très poussiéreuse. Les signes d’âge sont assez évidents, certainement un vrai plaisir à essayer. Merci Martin!
