Clear brown of color without a head. An aroma of prunes, vanilla, spice, cherries, chocolate, raisins and ryebread. A flavor of black currants, weak sour, oak, dark beeries and dry. Still nice after all these years!

Bottle. It was a belting night, with our kid, Glen and the rest of the Belgian crew, Tom. No idea what the bar was called but what a completely mental place. THE oddest beer drinking experiance in my life and one of the best. No idea how old this beer is as the label is pretty much all perished but it’s old. Too complex for me to describe, I just don’t know enough to do it justice. It was stunning.

Poured from a tiny 25cl. bottle, huge thanks to Doug. The aroma is cherries, slight cocoa. The flavor is cherry, caramel, toffee, slightly woody, brown sugar. The acidity is bright making the cherries pop, tasting almost fresh. Very good.

Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke. Clear copper liquid with medium light brown head. Aroma of almonds, cherries, light toast, light barnyard, light mineral, red berries and lemons. Very delicate and balanced. Taste is light sweet and light to medium sour with notes of cherries, blackcurrants and lemons. Delicious. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Excellent beer, absolutely worth the hype.

Huge thanks to TChrome for sharing this bottle. Brown-red pour with a small head. Aroma smells a lot like apple cider vinegar, without too much else going on. The flavor is a lot different - in a good way. I get a load of cherry notes, as well as some brown sugar, toffee and vinegar. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation. Awesome.

Vintage 1998. 250mL bottle at DHVL, pours a deep dark amber with good clarity and a medium beige head. Aroma is a little dusty, with notes of oak, dark fruits, a touch of vinegar, and some sweetness - highly complex stuff. Flavour is a wonderful balance of sweet and sour - amazingly complex stuff - with notes of sour dark fruits, a little vinegar, some candied sugar, and oak. The layers of depth in this are incredible, with a remarkable balance between the sweet and sour. Very low acidity on the finish, with a perfect marriage of sweet and sour. Wonderful stuff.
