_angst_ (4556) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Maschusch. 1972 vintage. Pours clear deep brownish red with no head worth mentioning. Smell is fruity and of course heavy oxidized with crackers, caramel, light cherries, rotten wood, leather, old forgotten 100 year old barn, raisins, prunes, hay, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny malty, slightly fruity and leathery. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny oily, tdry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and sour with crackers, caramel, sour cherries, raspberries, old tobacco, hay, minerals, leather, old barn and lemon zest. Demanding smell but the taste is intriguing. Heavy oxidation has ruined it but it’s also very interesting to experience how that’s happened.

August 20, 2016. Bottle at Sweet & Sour, vintage 1972, thanks for sharing!
Clear deep golden/amber no head. Aroma is dusty, damp cellar, cardboard, balsamico, murky wood, some sweet red berries, hints of raisins and leather. Taste is sour and slight sweet. Finish is sour vinegar notes, hints if raisin, berries, toffee, dry wood, oxidized sherry and cardboard notes, some lingering balsamico notes. Light bodied, dry texture, no carbonation.
Cool to try but clearly past it’s prime...

Kriek eylenbosch cuvee 1987 9€ follow a 35 year old brown with a 28 year old Kriek from a closed lambic brewery. I like fruit beers. 5% Pouring a deep brownish red. The nose is sweet candied cherries with a hint of a medicinal character.  Medium bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel. Fantastic flavor, brandied cherries, mild tartness, candy syrup. Sweet but delicious. Wow. Looking at the other rates guess I got a good bottle.

vtafro (6731) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2015
1987 bottle. Hazy brown pour with no head. Still smells like cherry and sweet toned aromas. Sweet cherry, and not surprisingly a touch of oxidation, but still drinkable.
