Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland Saturday Session 1 - 01/03/14.
Clear golden with moderate off white spotting/edgeing.
Nose is musty, light spice, oxidised notes, woody, summer fruits.
Taste picks up a little on the aroma comprising bitter orange, citric peel, pears, bread dough, spice, light must, oxidisation present but not as big as on the aroma.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a citric zing.
Ok for the age I guess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl. 1998 vintage. An almost clear one, but with lots of sediments in the bottle. Some white bubbles on top. The aroma is oxidised in a good way, with a faint caramel note, fruityness, apples and pears, and a peppery, herbal note. The flavor is quite dry and lemony, but the oxidised malts are present. Caramel hints. Medium body, with a nice carbonation. Impressive carbonation considering the age. Lasting finish with oxidation and some lemon. Still a good one, impressive how it has kept. 140301

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden orange color with a small head. Decently sweet with a definite oxidation to the aroma. Quite a bit of candy/sugar and a bit of a faded cherry aroma, leaning toward cherry skins. The flavor is a bit more complex and robust with a solid cherry character and some nice grassy funk. Still fairly sweet with some sugar, bread, and sweet fruit. Lots of citrus notes on the palate as well, mostly lemon and orange.
