Sampled from bottle shared by Kurt @ Belgium in a Box. Thanks! Unclear orange color, no head. Aroma is quite fruity with slight tart hints. Flavor is very strong, acidic, very sour and sharp unripe fruits. Hmm once you get used to it it's pretty nice but for me personally the sharp sourness is too much.

Vintage 1999. Flaska från Mikkeller beer shop drucken med ölföreningen. Smak och doft av äppelvinäger, ekträ, vått gräs, outspädd äppeldricka, vita vinbär. Skarp, stor syrlighet. Helt ok men något dyr ;-) madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017

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. hackobock (4095) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2016

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. MrOrla (3529) - Odense C, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle 1999 @ Shared Opening Night Dunkbar, Vindueskigger. Pours muddy deep orange with no head. Aroma of Heavy acid, wet hay, citrus, leathery notes. Taste is heavy sour, with loads of acetone and vinegar. Not in shape anymore. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2016
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. jc1762 (1610) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2016
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.
