375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a cloudy reddish color with no head. The aroma and flavor have tart, funky cherry, wood, acidic but smooth drinking. This was an 06 bottle and didn’t have much carbonation but the flavor was very good.

b3shine (6400) - Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
375 ml bottle to taster (January 2006 vintage; shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for its age; a cloudy cherry with bubbly white lacing. Smells good too; cherries, funk, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. This may be the only sour with little to no carbonation that I’ve ever truly enjoyed. The complexity is stunning.

Alengrin (3026) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Tasted from a ten year old bottle I found in a forgotten corner of the cellar today, must have been one of the first batches. Pours a beautiful deep ruby red colour glowing in the autumn sun, clear; head formation is limited due to its age (and style) but with gentle forcing, a loose, milky, pale beige head appears (not a trace of pink) with quite good retention. ’Old’ lambic aroma with sour cherries abounding, apart from hints of sundried tomatoes, raspberry vinegar, unsweetened yoghurt, very old sherry or madera, musty cellar, dried lemon peel, earth, dust, damp cloth, passion fruit, raw red cabbage, sweat. Taste immediately very estery and fruity, sour cherries drenched in red wine, mellowish lactic acid, red grapefruit, soft carbonation but still some champenoise tingling on the tongue, barnyard funkiness, old sherry, Brett leather effect becoming increasingly stronger in the finish, which is dried completely by the lambic and fruit acidity as well as woodiness (also from the cherry stones), therefore lasting very long, even a bit coarse, but very pleasant if you are into this style. I tasted this fresh some years back and admittedly, the fresh, crisp cherry sourness has decreased a bit, but in this old bottle you get a more noble, rounded and elegant character. Very interesting to taste at this age - as is always the case in the authentic lambics. Had this right after a young Oud Beersel Oude Kriek and though style-wise they are basically the same thing, it is not hard to come to the conclusion that beers of this level of complexity have a necessarily very different character. I’ll never get tired of this most complex of all beer styles.
