Best before 1999. Dark orange/brown body with floaties and thin white head. Aroma was a musty old cork. Flavor was sweet, leathery, earthy malt. Palate was smooth and soft and void of any carbonation.

Alengrin (2203) - BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2014
Strong version of the classic De Koninck on 75 cl bottles. Warm amber colour under a yellowish white, thin head; malty and estery aroma, with the unmistakable De Koninck yeast presence, caramelly and bready malts, spiciness, toasted bread, orange peel. Soft fruity taste, sweet but not cloying, some citrus, sweet maltiness and spicy yeastiness, again very De Koninck but richer and more vinous, smooth and somewhat resinous mouthfeel, yeasty and grassy hoppy finish with a hint of warming alcohol. I liked this, too bad it was discontinued years ago to be replaced by their Triple d’Anvers.

10/10/12. 11.2oz bottle, 2004 vintage, from Walt... wtf, Walt? He sent me this entirely randomly as a thanks for sending him beer that he paid for! What a dude! Hazy, yeasty, dark amber, ruby pour with a very small ring of khaki head and no lacing. Yeast, burnt caramel, oxidation, and what reminds me of a shot of whiskey or something in the aroma. Sweet caramel entry with plenty of yeast character followed by more oxidation and a lingering aspect of burnt nuts and burnt popcorn - not in the buttery sense, but the actual burnt popcorn sense. Interesting. Glad to try it!

Botella de 33 Cl en 1997. Rara botella como si tuviese el cuello con una burbuja enorme

Lightish amber pour in glass. Nose and taste is heavy citrus, limes, bread, hay and sugars. Rated 12/1/02

Review transfer from personal notes. Beautiful light amber color, transparent. Rocky head retains exceptionally well. Aroma is very... aromatic, from a good distance away from the glass as well. But alas, is this Irish Spring soap or is it a beer? Seriously, the lime flavoring in this beer gives it a bready/soapy lime aroma that makes you think you’re in the shower! Yikes! Taste is the most disappointing part of this beer. Smell, appearance and drinkability are great. This is a weak, lime flavored amber ale with a slight resemblance to american wheats (wheat as an ingredient, but virtually no characteristics of a wheat beer that you would find from Germany). Finish isn’t terribly long. But it’s a refreshing beer. Almost light enough to qualify for lawnmower status.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle at DHVL. 1993 vintage. Pours amber coloured with a small off white head. Dusty and oxidized aromas with notes of butterscotch, caramel and peas. Flavour sweet malt, caramel, toffee, matured beer and alcohol.

Christian (11219) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2009
1993 Cuvee Antwerpen. Dark amber with a small off-white head. Very dusty an mouldy, and vineous. To old to rate properly, I just wanted to have it in my records. Numbers don’t reflect my experience but are simply the average score at this time. I’ll be looking for a fresher one for a re-rate.

75cl bottle @ DHVL. 1993 Vintage. Pours amber/reddish with a small creamy white head and lacings. Aroma is heavily oxidized. Sweet mouldy, caramel and cellar. Quite rotten with some tart cherry notes in the end. Over the hill . .

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Sampled on draught at the Brasserie V in Madtown: Pours a murky brown colour with a HUGE tan head. Aroma is sort of sour, yeasty with bready malts and cinnamon on the nose. Taste is sort of tart but rich, flavors all around, nuts, pear and citrus notes.
