From 37.5 cL bottle, thanks to Grovlam. Pours slight hazy orange with a light orange and diminished head. Fruity (apple and raisin) and acidic aroma. Starts very sweet fruity, gives away a mild fruity note and a mild brett acidity. Dominantly sweet in a thick caramel/cane sugar way. Unusual but very nice.

Bottle. [thank you, Grovlam, shared @ Plan B]
Vintage 1987-ish
Under the cap there is absolutely destroyed cork. Apart from cork particles, the beer pours deep orange. It’s rather muddy with a small white head - disappears quickly. Aroma has toffee, fruitiness, wood, light tartness, port. Rather full and creamy. Flavour is surprisingly sweet, weak woody tartness and it sticks nicely to my teeth. Fresh even for its age.

sunevdj (3499) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2007
Roskilde Festival Tasting. 1989 vintage. Pours a hazy red amber. Surprisingly sweet with lots of rye notes. Tastes like ymerdrys. Slightly spicy in the end. Never thought I should say this about a gueuze but it was actually toos sweet.

Grovlam (4167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle 37,5 cl. [Thanks to the owner of Dranken Geers in Belgium for giving me this one]Vintage 1989 was the expiring date, so it was properly one or two years older. This was the original Eylenbosch Gueuze in Schepdaal. No head and no lacework. Clear sparkling body (yes there were still sparkles left in this bottle.) Color was light amber like. Aroma was light vinegar tones with hint of citrus and some dusty wood like notes as well. Also sweet berries and light caramel could be detected. Surprise to find a good amount of sweetness left in this + 18 years old Lambic. Actually reminds me more of a Faro then a Gueuze! Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Light sweet flavor with some acidic. Sweet malt like finish.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2007 75cl 1987 - Beautiful deep dark golden body with a big bubbled white head, lots of sparkle; Beautiful elegant nose, slightly oxidized (only very, very little), very settled and well balanced between apple and wood; Thin a little sharp texture, very little salty, quite acidy with lots of lactic and a very little acetic acid; Long finish starting out dry mellowing out over a long time, warm sweet apple and barrel aromas, you can smell the cork a very, very little. Good bottle, has aged remarkably. This might not have been the best of geuzes when it was released, today it was quite good though............. 37.5 cl bottle, vintage ? (5-4-3-1=7) - Amber body, white head; Warm sweet sugary body; Sweet body, little carbonation; Long oxidized finish. To old!
