Liefmans Goudenband 1974
Sweet malty aroma of raisin, toffee, dates, very mild chocolate, and some slight tartness and acidity. This has no signs of oxidation and still has decent carbonation. Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost creamy. For a beer that’s over 38 years old this has stood up exceptionally well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml. 2014. Appearance: dark brown with only the slightest hint of ruby. Almost completely opaque. Moderate khaki head.
Aroma: Malty undertones, with red wine and sour cherry most prominent. Hints of apple and pear.
Taste: Starts sweet and malty, quickly leading into sour cherry and apples. Vinous. Lactic acid bite, otherwise very clean. Bitterness is there to balance but definitely malt forward.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a high carbonation. Hint of alcohol warmth.
Finish: Semi dry with some lingering tartness.
Overall: World class Flanders Brown. Perfect balance of maltiness, fruity esters, and lactic tartness. Complex aroma and flavor.
