1987 Vintage @ Kulminator // 37.5 cl; covered by cooked on dust but not so much as you would expect with part of the label gone, split between me & HeardAboutIPA // clear copper hued amber with no head // smell is a warning, rusty metallic & lots of old rotting & ancient chemical sweeteners, I quit smelling this after two tries because it is bad & unpleasant // taste is bad, apply described by HeardAboutIPA as being drinkable but that is just about it, even the drinkability of this is a borderline case, burned sugar, oodles of old gone bad sweeteners, completely expired, very nasty cough syrup, band aids, copper, rust, bitter metallic, tastes expired, vile // flat & slightly sticky body // other reviews seem to indicate that this has held up quite well but unless if my pallet is not good enough to pick up the awesomeness of this, my body was simply way beyond past date & which might mean that not all bottles have held up great //either way, I don’t want to check it out

1987

Head: none
Colour: slightly murky burgundy red
Smell: raspberrys, bit sweet , tiny bit tart
Taste: start is fruity with tart notes, tart is away fast tough and makes place for a slight but not unpleasant sweetness and malty flavour. end is fruity with tarty / woody notes , great beer altough i can accept the fact that it was probabbly better 20 years ago !

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2012
37,5 cl Bottle @ Kulminator, Antwerp. Vintage 1987!! Dark amber coloured beer with no carbonation and almost no head. Light fruity and woody (fruit stone) light tart fruity hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light fruity, raspberry with a very short tart hinted. Lost some sharpness in the palate, little soft but ending is developing light tart, woody and dry hinted. Very nice smouth fruity balanced, and kept perfectly. Unique.

Naturligvis en ganska gammal doft, men med tydlig bärton. Helt utan kolsyra och med en aning papp. Ändå kan man fortfarande känna fruktigheten. Undrar på hur den var som ny....

gyllenbock (4444) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle at Kulminator in March 2012. (Vintage 1987) 10 EUR for a bottle, 37,5cl. Clear deep red with no head. Light notes of raspberries in the aroma, more in the taste. Also wood and something sweet. No sourness to talk about. Still fresh and very, very drinkable, almost like juice. It’s not every day that I drink a 25 year old beer, a beer that still taste very good.

At Plan B - Copenhagen. Thanks to Kim Johansen for getting me on to this beer! Clear amber beer. A little dry on the palate. Fresh and tart. Peachy as much as it is raspberry. Remarkably fresh for it’s age - would have never have known this was 22 years old. That said I’m not getting the same swivel eyed pleasure as some out of this. Decent nontheless.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Draught at Plan B, 20 years old (1989 apparently), last keg!
Cloudy red-amber color; small head.
Delicate aroma of ripe raspberries, vanilla, flowery cologne, talcum powder. It has a medium body strength; perfect blend of residual sweetness and sourness, with a fresh fruity touch, sweet raspberries in the front and just more aggressive lemon at the end, candies.
After such harmonius flavor, by contrast the palate is more coarse, with citrus tartness and a light obvious astringency.
Perfect. Amazing how it can keep the balance after so many years.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
On tap @ Plan B from a 22 year old keg. Pours cloudy and brownish red in colour. Very nicely balanced and tart with notes raspberries, fruit, wood, balsamico and a faint hint of almonds and marcipan.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2009
Sampled from a 22 year old keg@Plan B, Copenhagen. Soft carbonated, slightly hazed orangey-brown body. Virtually no head. Very fresh, genuine fruity raspberry aroma. Soft, but distinct fruit flavor. Loads of fresh raspberries, well rounded with a mild fruity tartness and a some discreet sour-sweet tones. Lasting raspberry finish. Very inviting with an amazing freshness.

Draught at plan b. Cloudy dark red colour. Big stable creamy tan head. Fruity berry aroma. Very good acidity, sour but not vinegary. Sweet berry flavour, but very well balanced. Like good sour saftevand.
