oteyj (2127) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 2, 2010
1984 vintage- thanks Chris. Hazy orange amber with a lively white head. Lots of fine bubbled effervescence in the body. The aroma is hugely funky but oh so mellow. Acidic lemon, leather, hay, and farm abound. The flavor is simply majestic. Massive tart funk, cider, farm, and puckering sourness. The palate is bone dry and smacking. Simply incredible.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle 1984 vintage shared by Andy, wow this was something else. Pours a light murky and lime tinged nectar with a copper tone undermining the lime. Pungent cheese and basement musk aroma. Funky cheese a subtle acidic vinegar tone, some funky mildew and a lemony sourness. Very happy to have had the opportunity to try this.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle of the 84 at Paul’s place for Kan’s visit courtesy of Andy. Pours a milky light brown with no head. Sweet, tons of honey and caramel. Cloying aromas. Light carbonation, subtle. Sourness hits quickly, long lingering acid and vinegar. Acid and a little bit of toast on the finish. Interesting.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2009
(750ml bottle, 1988 vintage) Pours a cloudy golden yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of green apple, earthiness, horseblanket, white grapes, and oak. Flavor of acidic lemon, grapefruit, some vinegar, and light wood.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle at WSF. 1988 vintage. Pours hazy golden coloured with a thin white head. Oxidized aroma with notes of marzipan, rotten wood, berries, earth, forest floor and some spices that tickles the nose. Dry and tart flavour with mouldy notes of mature beer, tannins, balsamic vinegar and spice - almost hot.. Amazing brew, even after 21 years in a cellar.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2009
1988 bottle made by Eylenbosch, not de Keersmaeker. Murky. Head fizzed up but promptly disappeared. Light tannic, leathery character with a hint of tartness. Some peach notes, plus pear. Tannic, but quite rounded and refined at this point. Fresh acidity and a long finish with a hint of sweetness. Light nutty character with lots of lemon at the end. Crazy - what a blast to drink this 21-year-old original.

Eylenbosch Faro, 1988 bottle. Hazy light amber. The aroma is sugary with some caramelly notes. Maybe a bit smoked - these phenols are coming from yeast degradation though. A hint of tartness late, and some apple skins, but this is clearly too old. 4-2-5-2-10.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2009
1988 bottle generously shared by ygtbsm94 on 1/10/09: Pours a clear amber orange with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of complex toasty caramel and mild tartness with a touch of peaty scotch character. Body starts with faint carbonation and nice light malty sweetness with toffee notes and good crisp tart balance with a touch of oak. Has some acidic warmth in the finish, but has aged extremely well.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2009
1988 Bottle at WSF. Cloudy dark orange and a little carbonation. Wood, apple, pear, totally unique aromas. A bit of bandaid though. I think it is showing some age, but is a sturdy beer. Nice palatable, drinkable palate. Bright, fun, very herbal. Fresh, like drinking a garden. Lovely and crisp. Even found some kumquat character here.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2009
To Celebrate my 700th Belgium Beer. Bottle @ WSF. Vintage 1988. 75cl Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a small creamy white head. Tart, mouldy, woody, grapes and cellar. Very complex and still world class. Kind of mellow and smooth carbonation and mouthfeel. Vague vinegar tickles the cheek. Ends tart and dry. 21 years of age and still wonderful.
