4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle - kindly shared by JorisPPattyn - and what a bottle - OMG! Could be 1985, could be 1975... One of the two. Actually, it is brewed by Moriau, not Boon. In se, it does not belong here, but there are no older Moriau listings but I do want to share this incredible beer.
Pours dark orange with a small transparant head. Aroma is intense cherry (still!), some sherry and lots of funk. The body is light & sour, carbonation level is still very lovely and lively. Taste = kriek, wild raspvberry, small hint of white pepper. Fabulous how they made Kriek back in the days.
Joris, this was really a treat. Top score!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle -shared with Mikkel is from around 1985. The lable ws hardly readable and one could say that it is unfair to rate this beer when its that old - But hey - you just take in to consideration that its a kriek that old and then I think we will be fine.
The pour is pink and pretty thin - it kinda reminds me off ligt strawberrie flavour water. It has a tiny white head. The aroma has still a major cherry atitude but is follow by cork and vinegar. The taste is actually still fine even though its 25 years old - amazing. Its still fresh and sour with lots of cherries and without any oxydation. The palate is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Thx for sharing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1986(?) bottle shared by Ange. This one has decently well withstood the wraths of time. Though heavily oxidized and thinned out, and completely flat, it retains a mild acidity and unmistakable cherry note throughout. As with most very old lambic, the aroma and the flavor are at complete odds with each other; in this case, the flavor has little left to keep it going, instead being the kind of beer that you just want to smell and not sip. Some tobacco, ash in the flavor.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at RBESG Rome Grand Tasting, apparently vintage 2000. Pink colour, white head. Aroma of cherries, musty, yeast, tart. Flavour is dusty, cherries, cardboard, light butter, oxidation, not too sour but not very refreshing either. Light bodied. Not very good imo.
