1984 Vintage at the Grote Dorst. What a lucky day this was. Bottle was covered in dust and the cork had some difficulty coming out but our pro beer server managed it. I expected it to be flat but to my surprise, it poured crystal clear golden orange with a very much alive white head. The was a bit dusty, oranges and lemons, light vinegar, some earthy aromas. As odd as it smells, itís one of the more intriguing beers Iíve smelled, I really like it. This is the ultimate sour fix for the sour junkie in me because the taste is a whopping mouth puckering sour throughout with amazing depth! The mouthfeel is still crisp and clean after 29 years, light body and a super long finish. This wasnít just having a beer, this was a life experience and I and humbled when I drink stuff this good.

5/II/2012 37.5cl bottle 80s vintage @ vintage tasting Brugs Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2012-1225) Thanks to Thierry for the sample!

Note: from lost notes earlier this year, found again!
Clear bright orange beer, still a pretty big aery off-white head, pretty stable. Aroma: bit dusty, peppery, orange peel, lemony. MF: very soft carbon, medium body. Taste: dry start, bit dusty, orange peel, little peppery, then citric acidity. Aftertaste: sourish, little dry and spicy.

Inte mycket till doft. Citrustoner och grapefrukt, inget av de typiska stall och hästfilt. Smaken påminner om grapefruktjuice. Har inslag av stall. Väl bevarad och inte det minsta defekt trots 28år. Dock inte speciellt komplex, snarare frisk och fräsch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at DHVL, year unknown.... It pours clear amber, with a quickly dissipating bubbly white head. The nose is wood, earth, farmyard, sour yoghurt, tangy, hard honey and sweet over-ripe fruit. The taste is sweet-sour, wood, pithy lemon, lots of apple, pear skin, some underlying sweetness, tanginess and a touch of vinegar, with long, lightly tart finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Not my favourite gueuze ever, but this one has aged gracefully.

@ Akkurat: Lite syrlig vinäger i doft men smaken är mycket syrlig och god. Eftersmak är lång och mycket elegant. Helt fantastisk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle from 1984 opened in Oslo. It was quite an event when it happened. Very complex smell and taste on this one. Earth cellar, fruity, apricots, hint of cigarr. I also noticed a salty aftertaste, reminding me of salami. Very nice beer overall, loved the sourness. I wonder how much the experience plays into the score, it was one of those perfect beer moments.

Early 1980ís bottle. Clear amber body, no head, no lacing, gentle carbonation streaming up. Nose is full of wood, funk, apple cider vinegar and general acetic notes. Flavor is similar, with acetic notes and mild oxidation dominating. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, light acidity, a blit slick on the tongue. Not sure if this one just didnít survive 30 years of age (I donít mind mild oxidatitive notes) or whether it always had this much acetic character to it. Not the worst geuze, but I have no interest in giving it another shot.

1983 bottle with some carbonation left in it. Bottle courtesy of GRG1313. Pours with a clear, deep golden hue with a lasting white head. Aroma is musty, mostly cork, acid, apple, and rotten wood. Flavors are sweet, faded, appley, mild funk. Still lively bubbles, but the corked character makes it dead. Fun to try. We had a older Hassens that day (something from the 50s), and while flat, held its flavors much better.
