teorn88 (7206) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
37.5cl bottle shared at DHVL. 90s bottle. It pours a mostly clear amber color with minimal white lacing. Aroma is musty, with basement notes and caramel and light green apple and lactic acidity. Taste is also funky and dusty, with notes of moldy basement, earthy grass, hay, lemon. Medium bodied with close to flat carbonation. Overall, very interesting to try

1991 bottle thanks to Gibson. Pours a hazy orange gold with no head. The aroma is strong funk, rubber, wood. Medium body, funky, wood, apple, tart, held up very well, really glad I got to try this.

eManu (540) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle from 1991? Not sure about bottle date probably from the end of 1980s, but quite old. Broke the cork. Pours almost flat and an hazy amber colour. The Aroma is light but of grains and yeasts. Flavors of grains, yeast, apples, grapes. Still has a light sparkling to it. Wonderful light smooth sour and sweetness notes with very fruity finish. A very fine Gueuze.

Batavi (369) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Geproefd tijdens IPA/Sour proeverij, jaargang/vintage 1989, oudste bier wat ik ooit heb geproefd, uitgeschonken in Struise BD proefglas. Prachtige donkere oranje kleur, met een kleine witte kraag. Intense aroma's van: citrus, groene appels, oude bierkelder, paardendeken, hout, aarde, champignons, leer, heerlijk complex aroma. Het smaakpallet is ook na al die jaren geweldig gebleven, en prachtig gerijpt. Zuur en complex, een perfecte Gueuze. Oude bierkelder, muffig, in balans met verrassende frisse fruitigheid van citrusfruit en groene appels. De carbonatie is na 27 jaar, nog perfect bij deze fles, en het aroma en smaakpallet is geëvolueerd tot een zeer complex geheel. Zeer bedankt voor de mensen die deze bijzondere Gueuze hebben willen delen op deze proefavond van de bierclub. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1987 vintage bottle shared by Eric at the Lambic Cave, November 14th, 2015. Wow, thanks man! Pours a deep golden body with white head and soft lacing. Nose is super old - dusty basement, aged wood and leather. Mouthfeel is soft overall with notes of sour fruit, tart lemons, old basement funk, additional fruits and very faint chlorine. Still, a really solid lambic and a wonderful gueuze to try.

Aniela (4215) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2015
Vintage 1994 (?). Hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Malty oak aroma. Supriseingly fresh malty, fruity flavour. Really a good vintage beer :-)

PlutonowyMan (589) - POLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Kolor poprostu brzydki, trochę bursztynowy, przejrzała gruszka, kompot z suszek. Całość bardzo mętna, ze sporym rdzawym osadem na dnie. Piana praktycznie nie egzystuje, całość bardzo drobna, istnieje tylko w formie żołtawego osadu. Aromat przywodzi na myśl wino płsłodkie, syrop z winogron, naturalny sok z czerwonej porzeczki. Smak natomiast, jest poprostu hardcorowy, mocno kwaśny i wytrawny, wręcz niedojrzałe białe winogrona (kwasowość), jest też czerwona porzeczka, ktra nieco uspokaja kwaśny smak i nadaje gładkości, można wyczuć delikatne nuty daktyli a na finiszu każdego łyku trochę nieprzyjemna, gryząca, pieprzowa ostrość, kiszone ogrki. Goryczka słaba, lekka, pestkowa. Wysycenie wysokie, jednak nie mające charakteru musującego. Blend z De Neve to trochę niezidentyfikowany produkt, na moje pytanie o zawartość alkoholu, podano mi tylko orientacyjną wartość. Tak czy inaczej jest to piwo naprawdę kwaśne i cierpkie z mocno zaznaczonym winnym, wytrawnym charakterem, w tym wszystkim bardzo dobre, idealne do powolnej degustacji. No i wiekowe.

bartlebier (3631) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 37,5cl bottle Exp. 1991, shared@ BBF 15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. Missed the plop or non-plop upon uncorking, but this came out relatively dirty, with minimal remnant fizz, probably close to 30 years after bottling. Near-historic must transporting: old pickled lemon, vinegar, ammonia/chlorine. Very sour in the onset, heavy on lemon and soapier lime peel flavours, exacerbated by manageable chlorines, earth, chalk. Dry, layered, expired bomb of a sour time capsule and testimony of De Neves Oude Geuze output, before Belle-Vue took over to syrupspike the style nearly out of existence.
