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.

(Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown, very hazy with a fairly decent head. Spicy, dry tar-like mouthfeel - with some late sweetness. Dried fruits and a hint of bitter chocolate. no hop-bitterness though Excellent indeed. 161297

marcus (6704) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 15, 2005
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.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2005
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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Not sure of how old it is but it pours with a mighty head. Aroma is nice, dried fruits mostly raisen. Taste is still hoppy with a decent bite and rounded out quite well with nuts and sweet grapes. Impressive.
