Beautiful deep golden body with a big white head; Very special nose, old but behind the age there are layers of beautiful elder flowers and berries; Huge carbonation in a very aged body, quite fruity; Even more age in the finish! A beer that has the sense of something once very great.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 13/I/13 - 33cl bottle from Erasmus Hotel, back in the days when it was still a beery place @ Klaas place - BB: VI/2000 - bottled: VI/98 (2013-20) Huge thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, irregular unstable yellowish head, bit adhesive, some sediment floating around in the glass. Still an amazing head after almost 15 years! Aroma: sweet and sugary, honey, dry sherry, orange peel, candied orange peel, marzipan, spices, madeira. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit sourish, orange peel, sugary touch, little vinegar, sour apples, pretty fruity. Aftertaste: honey, little bitter, citric acidity, orange peel, alcohol noticeable. It is very clear from this beer that Kris uses a cooling ship to cool the wort. After all those years the wild yeast and bacteria make the beer more sour than at first, which makes the beer preserve better. Very nice beer if you like both sours and aged beers!

At the Hotel Erasmus in Bruges. Pours a nice Medium golden orangish color. Minimal fizzy white head, lasted maybe a minute or two. Aromas of light spices, a touch of brown sugar, and something whiskey like. Flavor is lightly sweet and hints of spiciness.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 De dolle 21. 33cl bottle consumed at hotel Erasmus, Brugge, Belgium.... Pours a mostly transparent golden orange brown with a thin layer if offwhite head... Rich sherry aroma with figs, honey, and dark Belgian sugars. Aged for sure with mild oxidation. Sweet all around... Flavors are on par with the difference being a faint to mild citric fruit tartness towards the backend. Carbonation is light and body hasnt thinned too much from the aging process. A well aged Belgian strong ale which has de eloped some nice aged characteristics. 8/4/8/4/15

Bottle at Hotel Erasmus, Brugge 02.10.10 Hazy amber appearance with a slim white head. The aroma is quite weird but likeable, I get mouldering fruit, you know like orange with a bit of white mould on em in the fruit basket, Loz gets gravy granules, so an interesting combination. Flavour leans more towards the fruit element rather than the gravy side but its a bit sour, the alcohol showing towards the end. Its fine but not as great as I was hoping, maybe its on the downward spiral, btw the beer menu said 1989 but the bottle said 1998. A8 A4 T6 P3 Ov14 3.5

My # 3400th rating. Shit. Thanks Rene for trading this. 1998 vintage. Pours clear amber with a small creamy white head. Nose is deep. Vinous, matured, dusty, oxidized, yeasty. But it also has a very fruity touch to it. Sherry, vinous and fruity. No doubt it is past its prime but its also obvious that this once was a world class beer. Just grateful for trying this. Thanks.
