I drank a 4 year old bottle I brought back from Belgium. Yes it had oxidized a bit but it was interesting nonetheless. It was sweet & spicy with big malt aroma and flavor. I wouldn’t suggest that most people sit on it for 4 years, but I do that sometimes with my cellar.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 (on bottle)First foregn beer I ever saw, when I was a kid in Irma. Diden´t taste it before now, some 25 years later. Not worth the wait. Small nose of sugar, caramel and yeast. Hazy, bright orange color. Apple/malty fullness, best thing of it must be the concelling of the 8,5%, they where never detected.

Bottle: Poured a hazy and beady amber brown with a very large and lasting head. Aroma was lightly cloved with warthy herbs and banana. Some tart pear notes on the tongue with sugary, caramelised bananas. The palate was quite bitter with lots of carbonation. Overall quite nice.
