eManu (531) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle from 1991? Not sure about bottle date probably from the end of 1980s, but quite old. Broke the cork. Pours almost flat and an hazy amber colour. The Aroma is light but of grains and yeasts. Flavors of grains, yeast, apples, grapes. Still has a light sparkling to it. Wonderful light smooth sour and sweetness notes with very fruity finish. A very fine Gueuze.

Batavi (349) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Geproefd tijdens IPA/Sour proeverij, jaargang/vintage 1989, oudste bier wat ik ooit heb geproefd, uitgeschonken in Struise BD proefglas. Prachtige donkere oranje kleur, met een kleine witte kraag. Intense aroma's van: citrus, groene appels, oude bierkelder, paardendeken, hout, aarde, champignons, leer, heerlijk complex aroma. Het smaakpallet is ook na al die jaren geweldig gebleven, en prachtig gerijpt. Zuur en complex, een perfecte Gueuze. Oude bierkelder, muffig, in balans met verrassende frisse fruitigheid van citrusfruit en groene appels. De carbonatie is na 27 jaar, nog perfect bij deze fles, en het aroma en smaakpallet is geëvolueerd tot een zeer complex geheel. Zeer bedankt voor de mensen die deze bijzondere Gueuze hebben willen delen op deze proefavond van de bierclub. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Bottle shared. 1989 vintage. Pours dark orange with a small bubble white head. Aroma is very funky, bright, hay, barnyard, green apples. Taste is damn sour, green apples, vinegar, basement funk, mushroom-like funk.

1987 vintage bottle shared by Eric at the Lambic Cave, November 14th, 2015. Wow, thanks man! Pours a deep golden body with white head and soft lacing. Nose is super old - dusty basement, aged wood and leather. Mouthfeel is soft overall with notes of sour fruit, tart lemons, old basement funk, additional fruits and very faint chlorine. Still, a really solid lambic and a wonderful gueuze to try.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2015
Vintage 1994 (?). Hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Malty oak aroma. Supriseingly fresh malty, fruity flavour. Really a good vintage beer :-)

PlutonowyMan (447) - POLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Kolor poprostu brzydki, trochę bursztynowy, przejrzała gruszka, kompot z suszek. Całość bardzo mętna, ze sporym rdzawym osadem na dnie. Piana praktycznie nie egzystuje, całość bardzo drobna, istnieje tylko w formie żołtawego osadu. Aromat przywodzi na myśl wino półsłodkie, syrop z winogron, naturalny sok z czerwonej porzeczki. Smak natomiast, jest poprostu hardcorowy, mocno kwaśny i wytrawny, wręcz niedojrzałe białe winogrona (kwasowość), jest też czerwona porzeczka, która nieco uspokaja kwaśny smak i nadaje gładkości, można wyczuć delikatne nuty daktyli a na finiszu każdego łyku trochę nieprzyjemna, gryząca, pieprzowa ostrość, kiszone ogórki. Goryczka słaba, lekka, pestkowa. Wysycenie wysokie, jednak nie mające charakteru musującego. Blend z De Neve to trochę niezidentyfikowany produkt, na moje pytanie o zawartość alkoholu, podano mi tylko orientacyjną wartość. Tak czy inaczej jest to piwo naprawdę kwaśne i cierpkie z mocno zaznaczonym winnym, wytrawnym charakterem, w tym wszystkim bardzo dobre, idealne do powolnej degustacji. No i wiekowe.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 37,5cl bottle Exp. 1991, shared@ BBF ’15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. Missed the plop or non-plop upon uncorking, but this came out relatively dirty, with minimal remnant fizz, probably close to 30 years after bottling. Near-historic must transporting: old pickled lemon, vinegar, ammonia/chlorine. Very sour in the onset, heavy on lemon and soapier lime peel flavours, exacerbated by manageable chlorines, earth, chalk. Dry, layered, expired bomb of a sour time capsule and testimony of De Neve’s Oude Geuze output, before Belle-Vue took over to syrupspike the style nearly out of existence.

AdamChandler (4507) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2015
This bottle acquired in a trade appears to be from 1992. 37.5CL with 91-93 on the label but none of them scratched to indicate the year. Served in a Gueuze Tumblr @ 45 Degrees F.

A - Ultra cloudy, just a murky burnt gold color. Cork had a small whisp of carbonation but no head formed.

S - The nose is not overwhelming but it smells very sour, lots of lemon, lime, maybe some cherry cola, coconut and balsamic vinegar.

T - Oh yeah, this is a total sour bomb! Insanely sour like it’s hurting my tongue but it has a lot of depth. A lot of flavor going on, nice lemon and sour dough bread and skittles.

M - Pretty much completely flat

O - Really enjoyed trying this. I have a 75CL as well but given I’m drinking this with just 1 other person, I’m glad it was enjoyed in the smaller format first.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Bottle, shared by Mike, awesome. 94 vintage pours murky golden brown color with small head. Aromas and flavor are super vintage...dusty wood, Italian leather, light lemon, basement musk and a touch of chlorine but not anything to fret about overall. Only improved as it warmed up and sat for a bit in the glass. Miss the 90s yo. Tried again, this one was an 87 vintage shared by Eric. Notes of pool water and cider...not nearly as good as the 94
