UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Case of 24 33cl bottles, batch around 1986. Its beautiful maturation makes this an epic beer! One of the best brewed beers at Palm according to me, taken over from the Aerts brewery from Joost-ten-Node that quit business in the 70’s. History now and not overly promoted by Palm. A pity as this beer had so much potential to sell, taste/aroma wise and the stunning retro label. Had the opportunity of tasting lots of old batches 1985 - 2005. Pours amber with no head. Doughy, raisined smokey character, licorice, sour, malt. Excellent aroma and matures amazingly! One of my all-time epic favorites!

Bottle at Kulminator summer 2010 vintage 1980 (one of the very last ones they had) Thanks to Greg for this round. Clear brown with no head. Thought it was a flemish sour ale, the aroma reminded me very much of a Rodenbach although the origin of the beer was very different. Molden earthy sour aroma with a acid and sugery flavor and a drying aftertaste. Great experience!

Bottle. [vintage 1980]. Bought @ Kulminator, Antwerp.
Pours a clear red-golden. A light fizzy yellowish head. Aroma from a distance it lots of strawberries. Closer it is more lambic-like. A little caramel and raspberries. Light creamy and full mouthfeel. Flavour is fruity, light sour, very dry and it stays for a very long time at the back of my mouth.

Fukito (782) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 7, 2007
Bottle at Kulminator, march 07, 1980 vintage!! (so this is as old as me!!) Beeatifull, winey, perfumy, vinegary, some green apples, cinamon and nuez moscada in the nose. Flavor is nice, mild but a bit watery and cleary over it´s peak. Seems a bit tired after all those years.. Some fruitiness with a slight sour tang and a winey finnish. MF is light to medium with a dry/ sour finnish. Appareance is a wonderfull deep copper, red color with sparkly carbonatation and a nice, medium sized, light tan head. Beatifull. I find unbelivable that this not so big beer handed all those years so well. Tasty.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2004
[Vintage 1980 - sampled March 2004 at Kulminator] The aroma is sweet of plums and prunes. The color is brown and it has a small fine head. The flavor is a little flat of wood and plums. The end is dry and woody. A wonderful beer for being so old.
