fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle 75cl @ 17th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation 2008.
[Vintage 1988 - from the old Eylenbosch factory] . Unclear hazy orange grey color with a virtually none appearance, virtually none lancing head. Aroma is green apple, sour - tart, oak, citrus. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate acidic with a long duration, and a dry dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. (240508)

yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2007
From 37.5 cL bottle, thanks to Grovlam. Pours slight hazy orange with a light orange and diminished head. Fruity (apple and raisin) and acidic aroma. Starts very sweet fruity, gives away a mild fruity note and a mild brett acidity. Dominantly sweet in a thick caramel/cane sugar way. Unusual but very nice.

Ungstrup (29164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2004
[The original Eylenbosch Gueze - vintage 1988 - sampled March 2004] The aroma is both sweet and sour with notes of wood. The color is a hazy amber and it has a fine head. The flavor is both sweet and sour with notes of candy sugar - like a Faro. The notes of sugar makes it a little weird - I wonder if it is the 16 years in the bottle that has done this? For a gueze this is not that good - but as a beer it is OK.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Original version from "Br. Eylenbosch" in Schepdaal at 4,3% ABV. Amber coloured, bubbly head (leaves the bottle by itself as soon as you get the cap off) but then the beer turns rather flat. Some tart - but far from extreme - vinegary notes nicely matched by a candied sweetness. 291196

oh6gdx (20244) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle, 1988 vintage, thanks joergen for sharing. Red/brown colour, small white head. Maderiawineish nose, which shows hints of Oxidation (a bit like the Bass King 1902 at RBESG). Flavour is Gueuze meets Madeira wine. Lovely.

Copenhagen Beer Festival. Huge thanks to Jacob (Hildigoltur) for pulling this from his cellar and sharing. Sourish woody nose. Easy going sour beer. A little acidic but nicely rounded off with a soft dry palate.

Courtesy of a generous trader, vintage 1984, 26 years old
Corked bottle; under the plastic film, the ugly mold has worn some millimeters of the cork, that is printed and guarantees the name of the brewery, from Schepdaal.
Beautiful golden-copper color, bright (at least, the first glass; the second one is cloudy orange); limited carbonation, mostly without head, with little perlage.
Mild aroma, sour components, wood, light plastic, a bit corky. Not exciting, though it improves after a few minutes.
Light bodied, but with the age it probably acquired a smoother mouthfeel; the flavor is sour, very lemony; the final is dry, acidic, a bit astringent but also rather short.
I am missing some more funky elements, lacking in complexity.
It will go well with my smoked mackerel, today.

Dedollewaitor (13761) - 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.
