(Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 1999 "Hiver". Hazy light brown, small off-white head. Unpleasant smell of... cow-manure? Very soft and lightly spicy with a slight underlyimg tartness. But a bit old and tired. 6/2/5/2/12=2,7

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (8%m, Fantome Saison dErezée Hiver ’98-99). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is spices, some sour wood and mild peppery notes. Flavour is wood, some sour fruits, quite spicy as well as some earthyness. A bit earthcellary notes as well. The aging might be the reason why this is quite mellow. Still very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle, Winter edition, vintage 98/99, 15 years old
Hazy golden color with medium sized head. Strong cork aroma and wood, very light vinegar. Thin body but smooth mouthfeel; some malt flavor, it has developed some Brett, and there is some woody astringency and tannins, to stand for the fading bitterness.
Still well drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled alc. 8% (PBF, Hiver version, vintage 1998-1999)
