Vintage 2004/004622. Warm golden with almost no head. The aroma is sour with notes of rye, fruit and malt. The flavour is sourish with light notes of vinegar, rye, fruit and malt. I know a lot like this very much. I think it’s nice, but obviously it’s talents are wasted on me.

bierkoning (9832) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2008
Bottle, bought expensively in the Cracked Kettle. pale orange color. Vinous aroma with muscat grapes, oak and sherry notes. Sour flavors, woody, citric and vinous. Sharp on the edges. Not a sign of the promised 10% ABV. Almost flat. An aftertaste that seems to linger on forever. Without any doubt a classic, I wish I had a crate of this, I would store it for many more years.

Some alcohol notes permeate late with stale hops and cork notes. Flavor is acetic fruit (pears, grapes, apricot) and a substantial malt body, lightly sweet with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

FatPhil (8629) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2008
375ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Week 2008)
Clear dark orange, no head. Beautiful aroma - complex combination of things. Quite sharp, and pleasantly sweet too, but tainted by clear butter-popcorn a.k.a. diacetyl. Taste is full of heavy esters, and dominated by the diacetyl. Behind that it’s sharp and appley, very zingy on the tongue, and even chip vinegar - oh so sharp, and oh so tasty, but alas the diacetyl is too prominent to have this really shine. (Without that, it would have scored more in almost all categories, so it’s been punished hard.)
