UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Vintage 81 sampled 2008: A hazy red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of metal, oxidation, fruit, and cherries. The flavor is sweet with notes of oxidation, metal, over ripe fruits. Too old, but still nice.
An unclear brown beer with a small head. Both the aroma is sweet and sour. Not the best of the type, but a still a nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampling of the 1998 version in 2002. Very dark brown. Wonderful balsamic, slightly acidic aroma. Medium bodied, vinuous. Perhaps not the most complex of beers, but I just love it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 2010-05-11, bb 2006-12, ~5 years old, 8-5-7-3-16=39
Beautiful dark brown color; medium-sized creamy head. Very nice aroma, vinous, a bit sour, light vinegar, fruits, chocolate, butter. The body is thinning, almost no residual sweetness, but the mouthfeel is quite smooth; caramel flavor, but also aggressive sourness, vinegar. The final has some chocolate too, but it’s quite short. Still good and interesting.
2004-05-28, bottled 2000-03, 4 years old, 6% ABV, 7-5-8-4-15=39
Beautiful amber color; creamy head. Nice aroma, malty, sour, woody and corky. Good body structure, quite aggressive; medium sourness, some malt but not sweet; IMO lacking some fruitness. Quite dry and astringent at the end.
Good but doesn’t reach the top.
