4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 On tap@Plan B, Copenhagen (around about 15 years old sample). Unbelievable how balanced this is given the age. Amazingly there is some sweet (and quite fresh) framboise at the front of the tongue, it the quickly turns to a slightly sour, tart palate, with some aged mustyness/woodyness, nice dry finish, and very moreish, something i could have sat down and drank all day, if it wasn’t so expensive, delicious.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2004 Draught @ Plan B, Vintage 1989 : Amber coloured. Unclear. Not much head, but it sure looks beutiful anyway. The nose is almost perfect. Full of fruits and some sour notes. Not so earthy as the really sour one, but still classy. Flavour is very fresh, acidic and fruity. There is a citric sourness the perfectly matches the fruitsweetness. Has a delicious full and complex body. Is dry, sweet and light sour in the end. Is very refreshing and cleansing. This is a tough one to beat.
Bottled, Vintage 1989 (9,4,9,4,18): Orange/light red coloured. Dusty. Light beige impressive head. Raspberries, sweetness and other fruitnotes in the aroma. Is light citric . Flavour is fruity with a subtle sourness underlying. Light spiced. Very smooth and balanced. Has a nice sourish fruitflavour in the end. Refreshing. Looking forward to try this from tap at Plan B.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Sampled from a keg, dated 1989, at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden) Hazy pink-red appearance with a small creamy white head. Wonderful fruity and natural aroma of raspberries...only raspberries and that’s just fine! Semi-dry and very clean flavour of raspberries, vanilla with a elegant tart note. Dry finish of raspberries with notes of mild tea and vanilla.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Acidic aroma with raspberries, vanilia and complex notes of spontaneous fermentation.
Almondy flavor with tones of raspberry, old wood and cherries. A certain amount of acid is surely present too. The coolest thing about this beer is that it´s available on tap from a keg that is 15 years old.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap, 15 years old, Café 't Pleintje Hengelo. Orange brown color, cloudy. Raspberry and lemon aroma and flavor. Mushy, dusty and earthy, but still fresh and full of life with a somewhat dirty lasting head. Well rounded sourness and some sweetness. Mushy raspberry finish that lingers on and on and on. A hour after I finished the drink I still tasted raspberries. What a brilliant beer after all these years!!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 From keg (10-15 years old) generously brought home from Belgium by Jacob Lövenlund, Jens (Ungstrup) and MartinKubert. Thanks guys, for sharing this liquid gold with me!!!
Beautiful hazy cheery color with the most foamy tall tan head. Very fresh and inviting raspberry aroma. Flavor is sweet and sour fruity with woody undertones. An extremely complex and tasty lambic, the best I have had so far and one of my all time beer favorites. Simply outstanding!!
