Bottle. Vintage 1999, bottle #03958. Very hazy orange with a small white head. Wonderful aroma of citrus, barnyard, some oak, some leather hints and some sweetish malty notes. A sour funky flavor with a good dose of citrus, lactic notes, and some sweet honey-ish, maybe slightly malty, notes. Getting ultra-acidic and slightly astringent by the finish. Medium-bodied. I was hoping for more and I feel something is lacking in the flavor (the aroma is amazing) but it’s still a very good Gueuze. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle #5893 (Thanks to Jacob) at Bagers - NewYears evening. Cloudy amber - white edges. Grape, earthy, high sourness, light light bike-glue & balsamic vinegar karakter, hugh dryness, a bit candy sweetness. kermis (14955) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
1999 vintage Bottle shared at Grote Dorst. Pours clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is big funky, musty cellar, fruity. Flavour is really heavy acidic, maybe a little too much. Unfortunately when trying this I was feeling a little worse for ware after a massive beer tasting in Brussels the night before. After enjoying a small amount this fine vintage whale, said whale proceeded to violently exit my body in a blend of old lambic and stomach acid. On the bright side, I got to enjoy it twice!

1993 bottle at WSF 2009: Cloudy orange with a small white head. Funky fruit, wood and leather aroma, covered in a dusty and earthy blanket. Dry and tart dusty old flavour.bierkoning (13806) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
1999 bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke: Funky leather, citrus and balsamic aroma. Very acidic, almost too sharp. Complex funky and balsamic character.
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 Vintage 99. Aroma has pear, lemon, lychee and oak. Very sour flavor with pear, yoghurt, fresh cheese, lemon. This geuze is amazingly fruity, and, in spite of the mouthpuckering sourness, softer than you might expect. I understand now why Belle Vue hides this beer from the crowd. If they get to know this beer nobody buys their normal crap.
Another tasting @ the RBESG in Sheffield showed that this beer has mellowed down a bit over the years and has further gained in complexity. Camons (13492) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2016

Flavor is very dry and sour, barnyard, leather, wet wood, green wine grapes, dry white wine, tart fruit. Medium body, rather oily mouthfeel, dry and lasting very sour finish. Flavor last very long, very complex brew. 280116 j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2011
