yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008
75 cL bottle, 2001 version from Kulminator - so it seems although we think it may have been an older bottle we ended up getting. Pours slight cloudy deep amber with small white head. Beatiful inviting look. Aroma is mild cherry sweet fruity and light sweet, quite fresh. Lovely light cherry fruity flavoured, mild citrusy note and light acidic bite on the back of the tongue. But the fresh fruityness and mild sweetness really stands out. Nice fruity finish. Lovely.

vintage 1975 @ Kulminator: Cloudy reddish brown with nice lasting head. Strong aroma of ripe fruit, wood, red berries and spices. Flavour is sweet with beautiful long sour finish with dryness. Well balanced.

beastiefan2k (2430) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Cork says 2000, served in a lambic basket. Pours with a thick, foamy head and takes a very long time to subdue (which it never really does). There remains a thick foam on the surface of the beer. The color is dark amber that allows for visible carbonation. Aroma is sour cherries and some sweet lightly old cherry sorbet. Not like juice or artificial at all and then there is just a bit of chocolate to round it off. Taste is lightly acidic and light cherry soda. Has a nice tingling mouthfeel and the flavor finishes quickly. Flavor comes off as sour cherry flavored candy (in a good way, not like Jolly ranchers or anything). A very impressive aged Flanders. There is just a hint of cardboard in the aroma but otherwise still drinking superb.
750mL bottle @ Kulminator in a Speciale Felix large tulip on 5/22/08.

Bottle. Light unclear medium red color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate cherry, marzipan, almond cake. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. (141007)
