0.75 l bottle (1994 vintage) at PBF, thanks sayravai! Copper amber color with small head. Sweet musty aroma with notes of strawberry and cork. Sweetish, acidic and corky flavor with strawberry and white currant. Musty and artisanal in a very nice way.

Bottled at PBF (1994 vintage). Cloudy orange, fair sized head. Lemony nose with caramel and port. Dry with tart rhubarb. Medium bodied. Oxidation has dried it out,but it’s still fresh and alive. Unusual notes of rhubarb and strawberry. Light salty finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (PBF, vintage 1994, courtesy of sayravai).
Golden color, small white head. Earthy, cellary, berryish aroma. A bit sour but also quite fruity and berryish. Grapes, cherry, calvados, red currant. Flavor has less earthyness than the nose. Long sourish-fruity finish. Certainly a bit past its prime, but still very delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, 0.75l, 1994 vintage) Almost clear with a very small head. Tart aroma with cherry notes and lots of cellar. Dry flavor has cherry, sourish berries, strawberry. Medium body, astringent palate, lowish carbonation. Very interesting, and (luckily) not spoiled after 15 years.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 75 cl) It’s extremely hard to put a style onto this beer - I’m open to different opinions. Deep, reddish golden with a minimal head. Extremely sour with a metallic finish. Inbetween you find some bitter citrusy notes. Brewed with roast chicory, coriander and orange peel. Very complex, very quenching - if you can deal with the acidity. I find it hard in this beer. 090897
