4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cL bottle at DHVL, 1992 vintage. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a semi dense white head. Cherry and vinegar like sour aroma. Sweet and malty flavoured with a light oxidation note. Smooth cherry and fruity flavoured with a very subdued rodenbach acetone note. Smooth and sweet finish. Has a bit of the sharp rodenbach acetone on the back of the nose. Lovely stuff.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma is sweet with notes of over-ripe cherries and a light sourness. The color is a clear amber with no head. The flavor is of sweet cherries and slightly sour with notes of wood and an extremely dry end. A fantastic flavor in a fantastic beer. A have to say thanks a million to Alex (fiulijn) for trading me this beer - thanks, Alex.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Strange brews they are the sophisticated Rodenbachs, but very nice experiences when you get used to them. But after a tour and a tasting at Rodenbach I certainly did. Light brownish with a reddish tint, very beautiful indeed. Quite acidic, perhaps a tiny hint of fruit sugars and not that much hops. A very complex beer - pity it’s retired. 060693

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brownish red. Big fresh cherry aroma. very fruity, vinuous and sweet. Only a hint of acidity. One of the beers that got me into beer sampling, and it’s just too bad that one of the worlds best fruit beers should be discontinued.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 2011-02-04, bottle from De Heeren van Liedekercke, vintage 1995, bb 11-05-97, 16 years old, 8-5-10-5-19=47
The bottle is in good conditions; the cap is not rusty, just the rubber has some bubbles. Beautiful color, ruby and amber; the head is small, but a few bubbles are persistent on the surface. The aroma is strong; sweet caramel, red fruits and moderate sourness, with a touch of wood and acetic; later there is some aroma of prunes. The mouthfeel is very smooth; the blend of caramel, sugars, fruits and sourness is a symphony; the woody character and tannins are very attenuated; the final, although still balanced, shows some more sourness and a light astringency.
Compared to many other beers, this one excels also because of the sweetness that balances the acidity, the correct body strength, and the absence of a strong acetone note.

Beautiful ruby-amber color, creamy head. Deep acetic aroma; vinegar, wood, sugar, light fruitiness. Beautiful mouth sensation, wrapping, velvety; perfect balance of sweetness and sourness; delicate cherry note, developing lately. The palate is less persistent than other similar beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6.5%. BB 1995, 14 years ago. From a distance the aroma is a lot like other old beers (which I usually dislike), sweet port, oxidation. Fortunately, up close it is more complex. There is the well-known prune/plum/raisin combination, and perhaps some cherry. Still acidic, though. Beautiful, clear dark red brown colour. Stable frothy head. The flavour is quite sweet, it has much of the same as the aroma. But not the oxidized characteristics, those I am happy to be without. Sweet flavour, cherry, prune notes, but with a good citric note to balance. The mouthfeel is a bit thick, tells me that there must be quite a lot of residual sugar in this beer.
