3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty, pale reddish colour, small head. Pronounced raspberry nose. Very raspberry flavour with a discreet sweetness on an underlying tart base. Nicely balanced between the sweet and the sour. Lovely Framboise considering this was never really my favourite style. 170598

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, Plan b. Fruity with notes of biscuit and caramel. Refreshing acidity in the finish. Well balanced but could use a little more lambic character.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft@plan b Copenhagen. I’ve tasted this 15 years old gem quite a few times over the last couple of months. Every keg is different in colour and taste, But every one of them is wonderfull. The balance between the sweetnes from the raspberries, and the acidicty from the lambic is outstanding. I recomend that everyone who can, get a sample of this beer. But save some for me!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Plan B, Copenhagen. Allegedly they have the last kegs in the world, aged approximately 15 years. My favourite lambic beer (so far). Very nice raspberry notes and an excellent balance between the sweet fruitiness and the refreshing acidity! According to our host Eylenbosch used 300 g (10,6 ounces) of fresh raspberries for every 37,5 cl bottle!?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Plan B, Copenhagen. This sample was about 15 years old. Plan B has only a couple of kegs left of this fine brew, its the last kegs of this beer in the world!!! Light red body, bubbly, no head. Nice sweet raspberry nose, backed up by some sourness and nice fruityness. Very sour flavor, raspberries of course, dry, woody and a another late sourness. This beer is so balanced. Very nice beer, have to try it again. About 6.5$ for a 25 cl sample!!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangey-amber colour. Aroma is slightly grapey, raspberryish with leather and horseblanket. Fairly sweet - raspberries with cream - leading to a late, appley tartness. Sweet & sour, sugary, fruity finish. 1989 vintage, tasted at 15 years of age.

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.
