Draught at Akkurats reopening, the second last keg from 1989. Small head. Color of straweberry soda. The aroma is more like a cassis than a kriek but the cherries are there toghether with almonds. Realy dry kriek with a perfect acidity and lingering fruit. Just a perfect summer drink.

Bottle shared by ChristianScheffel. Exp. 1991. Cloudy reddish brown with a small off white head. Aromas of marzipan, macaroons (makroner?), sweet cherries, a bit tart and oxidized. The flavour is mildly sour and fruity with notes of almonds, sticky sweet cherries and some musty cellar. Thanks again Christian!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BB 1991. Thank you Christian. Pours a muddy amber reddish. Nose is sweet and fruity. Dusty and mellow yet tart. Quite oxidized. Very woody and basically over the top. Sweet and sticky cherry and marzipan. Medium to watery palate. Wet dog, cork, dusty and cellar. The tartness is pretty much gone and im doubting whether its ever been there. Pleased to try this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fad: Rødbrun overraskende klar farve på denne øl der skulle være fra 1989. Utrolig fin karbonering og en dejlig duft af kirsebærvin og en smule stald. Ikke megen surhed men masser af kirsebær i smagen. Lige min type øl.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Estimated to be about 20 years old. To my amazement it actually did have a relatively high fluffy white head that was however quickly disappearing. The body was hazy and dark red brown. Aroma a bit weak but cherries were of course present whereas the normal hints of grapefruit or vinegar was very much subdued. Cherries on the forefront of the flavor but also some acidity remained although the many years of storage had made it quite subdued and the general impression was very pleasant. Low carbonation long aftertaste. Truly a good experience.

Tap. 20 years old. Hazy deeo red colour, short head. Nice fruity cherry aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is refreshing with cherries along with a pleasant mild sourness and some sweetness. 20 years old... I’m amazed.
