Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2010
’82 bottle at Ebenezer’s. Poured a murky dark yellow/orange, the head faded pretty fast. Carbonation was surprisingly lively though. Aroma was massively earthy. Cheese, dust, wood, wet forest, hay, with some vinegar and lemony citric notes. Very dry finish. Very cool to have tried a beer older than myself, and a good one at that!

Pretty cool this came out to be my 600th. Big thanks to Chris at Ebenezer’s for this bottle. 1984 vintage. Pours a cloudy dark apricot color with an impressive bubbly head given the 25 years of aging. Aroma is total funk, but mellow and controlled, with lemon, hay, and heavy earthy tones. Flavor is similarly impressive; just an amazing example of a gueuze. Beautifully dry mouthfeel. Awesome stuff.

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 (8050) - 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 (12367) - 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 (13966) - 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.

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.
