[1988 Bottle, thanks for sharing this rarity, ygtbsm94!] Pours dark golden with a small white head. Funkiness in the aroma is pretty subdued, with a decent amount of sourness that turns semi-sweet at times. Pretty nice. The taste starts a little sweet as well, then turns funky, especially in the finish, that is dry. Smooth with pretty good mouthfeel. A very well-rounded gueuze, and an awesome experience to get to try something this old.

84 vintage shared by mj, thanks man. Poured a lightly hazy orange color with some brown edges and a bubbly white head that faded to a thin layer. Tart, funky aroma with some dry fruit (berry and apple skin), some horse blanket, and a strong barnyard yeastiness. Crisp, lightly tart entry with some tart fruit (berry, green apple) and some funky barnyard yeastiness that imparts some nice horse blanket and cobweb flavors before finishing with some dry woodiness. Low carbonation, smooth and puckering on the palate. Very enjoyable beer, thanks a bunch to Mike for sharing.

750ml corked bottle, 1988 vintage, broken out graciously shared by ygtbsm94 in January of 2009. Sweet mellow aroma, shows little of it’s age, but still holds up quite well. Still has some carbonation. There are some light sour tastes, but they have mellowed as well. Very pleasant lemon lime wheaty aftertaste. Extra points for aging gracefully. An awesome treat.

SamGamgee (2451) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 11, 2009
75cl bottle, 1988 vintage, courtesy of ygtbsm94. Orange-amber color that has some head despite the age. Mellow and smooth aroma, though still quite tart and citric. Smooth, sour and woody flavor. Low on the carbonation, but that was expected. Really cool to sample a gueuze with this much age on it.

Golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of citrus, funk, lemon peel, light butter and earth. Funky flavour, lemon, citric acid, yoghurt and fruits. Sour finish, yoghurt and funk.
Very fruity for it’s age.

We had vintage 1984, a 75cL bottle at the Verzekering tegen grote dorst, in Eizingen. Beautiful beer, seems to have even improved in it’s age. Slightly orangy yellow. Head disappears instantly, but logically it is not poored in such a way that it can develop a good one either. Lemony citrus aroma, bread and some apples. Very dry finish. Great way to start a day!

Bottle @ WSF - Vintage 1998. Hazy orange with no head. Sour aroma with barnyard, wood, lemon, leather and horseblanket. Sour flavour with notes of barnyard, wood, lemon and horseblanket. Nice tart and dry finish. Lovely!

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - MAY 1, 2009
1988 Vintage 37,5 bottle @ Akkurat. Deep golden with a lasting creamy white head I’ve never expected to see in a beer like this. The aroma is sweet, a little oxidized and quite corky, but funky and lively nevertheless. A strange mix of sweetness and sourness. The flavour is sweet with just a little lemony tartness.
