Dickinsonbeer (5075) - 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 (6480) - 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 (18633) - 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 (8402) - 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.

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2010
375ml bottle, I think from 1988 or something. Lost my notes, but didn’t really need them with this. Long story short, a complete buttery mess. Just nasty butterscotch, something has gone wrong here. I would have liked to have tried one of the "epic" bottles of this, but diacetyl just took over this poor bottle.

CanIHave4Beers (3790) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
1984 bottle courtesy of Puzzl with all highest recommendations from Davinci. Pours almost flat and remarkably hazy, almost a grayish yellow. The aroma is odd butterscotch and salty notes with a deep funkiness that really doesn’t dominate the aroma like the salt water does. The flavor is all sorts of lemon sourness with some apply fruitiness and a deep intense earthiness. There is some leathery and salty briny notes in there as well, this beer is all sorts of weird and lovely. Thanks Andy

ketchepillar (1184) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - AUG 11, 2010
RBSG Tasting. Officially the oldest beer I’ve had. 1984. Crazy shit. Really effing crazy. Aroma is corky and old. Seriously weird as shit, cigar ash sour-I love it though. Cheese that fills the sinuses.

rlgk (15802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2010
37,5 cl bottle from 1988. At Akkurat, Stockholm. Golden color, white head. Aroma from raisins, rubber, sweetish notes, earthy, sourish and with some yrup. Vinous, sour flavor, sweet fruits, rubber. Very balanced and smooth. Amazing sweetness after 22 years.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle at RBSG 2010. Pours murky brown, low carbonation, no head/lacing. Nose is mushroom, leather, funk, tobacco, vinous notes, acid. Palate is very tart, mildly oxidized in the mouth. Leather, horseblanket, butter cookies, baked goods finish. Insane that I even got to try this...
