fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Courtesy of a generous trader, vintage 1984, 26 years old
Corked bottle; under the plastic film, the ugly mold has worn some millimeters of the cork, that is printed and guarantees the name of the brewery, from Schepdaal.
Beautiful golden-copper color, bright (at least, the first glass; the second one is cloudy orange); limited carbonation, mostly without head, with little perlage.
Mild aroma, sour components, wood, light plastic, a bit corky. Not exciting, though it improves after a few minutes.
Light bodied, but with the age it probably acquired a smoother mouthfeel; the flavor is sour, very lemony; the final is dry, acidic, a bit astringent but also rather short.
I am missing some more funky elements, lacking in complexity.
It will go well with my smoked mackerel, today.

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Säuerlicher aber relativ begrenzt intensiver Antrunk, harmonisch. Überaschenderweise schmeckt man nicht, dass das Bier bereits 20 Jahre auf dem Buckel hat. Im Mittelteil etwas süß, ausbalanciert, einfach nett - aber ohne Komplexität. Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: -,11,12,12,-,12 - 11,82

Copenhagen Beer Festival. Huge thanks to Jacob (Hildigoltur) for pulling this from his cellar and sharing. Sourish woody nose. Easy going sour beer. A little acidic but nicely rounded off with a soft dry palate.

HonusWagner (1220) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
1982 Bottle thanks to Dstructo at Stone Sour Fest. Thought I’d put in my rating but couldn’t find it. Extremely muddy brown color, but that’s to be expected. Taste was heavy on lactic tartness, very funky and resembling an extremely moldy cheese. Pretty drinkable, although a touch of vinegar has no doubt poked through from age. Good beer, one that has held up amazingly well.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Clear golden orange pour with a thin white head. The aroma is very earthy and corky. Softly tart with a ton of cheesy/funky aroma. Soft tartness with a lot of soft texture. A bit of light earthiness. A bit of soft vanilla character along with a touch of tartness. Surprisingly very tasty. Showing it’s age, but it’s still drinking quite nicely..

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
750 ml bottle. 1984. Pours a hazed murky peachskin orange- mostly flat. Aroma is sweet and sour sauce, soy, oxidation,, some musty water, dank mildew, horsey brett funk and light fruity esters. Flavor is dusty old cobwebs, dusty malts, cracker, toast, slight old stale sweetness over a lactic sourness, oxidation has set in a lot, gets very earthy and leafy with leather, luckily aceto hasn’t overwhelmed and there is a flat acidity in the end which is a bit lackluster. I think this may have been my 2nd or 3rd 1984, and all have been slightly disappointing so far or poorly handled or stored over the years.

gyllenbock (4071) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle at Akkurat, vintage 1984. Hazy golden with a small white head. Very impressive funky aroma with citrus, apples, earth, hay. Very tart taste, incredibly fresh given the age. A magnificent beer! 375 SEK for a 75 cl bottle, ridiculously cheap considering what you get in the glass. I must drink this one again.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2010
750 ml bottle, 1984, at Grote Dorst, shared with BigMomma. Straightforward sour with the expected funk. Still had a lively head after all these years. Well-kept and expertly served.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle from the late ’70s or early ’80s, shared by the manager of Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dry, dusty, citric, oxidized aroma with barrel notes. Lovely orange-amber color with some bubbles. Funky as hell; aged big time. Hugely fruity and citric flavor, funky, with some yogurt, leather. Soft, oily mouth feel. Very interesting, and in great condition. Lovely; very impressive.
