2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a plum brown clear appearance with a thin light brown head. Very heavy leather and vinegar in the nose along with some grape/plum, fig, and cherry notes. Very acetic and tannic woody flavor along with black cherry, sherry, caramel, and wine notes. Too much for me to have more than a glass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.375 bottle. Very dark crimson color and no head. Aroma is vinuous, sour with some sweet spices; resembles a south European plum tsuika quite closely. A very sour even acidic taste, again a lot of plum liquor. Medium body,slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is a bit less sour than the taste but still does not the astringency. Overall the beer is well-made but not much to my subjective liking.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375l bottle, vintage 1996. Brown body, no head at all. It has lots of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma and taste of caramel, candi sugar and sherry. The taste has some red vinous character which really fits the beer. It’s mostly sour but there is also a noticeable sweetness to it. Very interesting beer and it’s hands down the oldest I’ve had so far.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 750ml paper wrapped corked and caged green bottle, poured into a Duvel Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark brown with a small fine tan head, that reduced quickly and left a thin lacing. Aroma of overripe plums and apples, and a hint of vinegar. Flavours of plums, apples, green table grapes, red currants and a hint of caramel and wooden notes. Taste is light-medium sweet and bitter with a medium sourness. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and lively carbonation. Liefmans Goudenband is a good introduction to sour beers, the flavours go well together, and it’s not overly sweet or sour.
