Bottled in 1984, sampled in 2005. Like magic dave said, the beer really tasted like a Flemish Sour Ale. So of course sour, but also quite malty with some wood in the finish. Very nice after all those years.

No#48. (1984). This bottle was in terrible shape, i had serious doubts that it was still good, how wrong i was. Aroma is sour, with a decent amount of malt kicking about, nice agedness. Taste is Oh soo good, its turned to a flemish sour ale by this time, the sour malt is juicey with good dusty wood characters making it amazing. Dry finish finishes this off excellently. A very unexpected winner of a beer. This was my favourate beer of the whole trip, and hope dirk doesnt run out before i come back for more.

Consumed at Kulminator Cafe in Antwerp, 1984 bottle. This brown ale poured with a tiny white head that dissipated immediately. There is a sharp acidic aroma that matches the sour brown flavor. This beer has aged much better than would be expected of a brown ale.

A gift from my Brother brought back from Belgium. Yeast is prominent in the nose, some dried fruit/figgy aromas as well.
Malt and yeast, slight toffee. A decent ale, glad I could enjoy it.
