3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ DRBM 2011, from my own cellar, about 20 years old (from the original Clarysse brewery). Murky brown color. Very lively, beer came gushing out of the bottle. Aroma was, alas, quite corky, mouldy. Flavor, however, was amazing, nice sweet ’n’ sour, with notes of raspberries, I wouldn’t have thought it was 20 years old.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
