Bottle courtesy of Carl. 1999 vintage. Hazy tiny burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Heavy oxidized lambic nose. Lemon, green apples, horse blanket & barnyard. Heavy sour light fruity taste. Dry, tart & light puckering mouth. Simple sour finish. Holds up ok but I’m sure this was better at a younger age.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 1999. Flaska från Mikkeller beer shop drucken med ölföreningen. En ganska platt lambic utan särskilt mycket karaktär. Ganska skarp acetisk syra ger ändå udd och spänst. Helt ok och roligt att dricka gammal lambik men inte jättebra.

Bottle shared by Huhzubendah. Vintage 1999. Thanks Matthew! Poured a really hazy light orange color, maybe just dark yellow. Yeah, let’s go with that. Aroma was lots of fizzy Super sour, surprisingly for being so old. The sour character is really rounded out though. Very nice. Tart. Solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle! A very special 1999 vintage bottle stored well and poured into a tulip glass showing dark cloudy apricot with quickly dissipating foam.
The nose shows light, mellow, and balanced bretty and acetic notes with light oak.
The palate is lightly carbonated and medium bodied. High but balanced tartness with light apricot and a lot of tart apricot on the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Keir - thanks again, Keir! 1999 vintage. Pours a super clear bright orange earlier, and it gets murkier later. No head. Aroma of leather, cheesy funk, oak, rubber cement, vegetals and florals, and some apple skin. Flavor of lemon, leather, oak, tart apples, wood, and vinegar. Very tart. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, very tart mouthfeel. Pretty impressive for the age. Really glad I got to try this one.
