2000 Vintage. 375mL bottle at DHVL, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out stale wet wood and light funk. Flavour is exactly the same, with lots of wet wood, cardboard, and light funk. I wonder how this was when it was new - the cardboard comes out a lot, though it doesn’t exactly taste stale. Good stuff, but unexciting gueuze. JulienHuxley (6000) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Older bottle, pre ’78. Really pretty pour, clear amber with huge 2 finger white head. Aroma is funky, some light acetone notes, cheesy notes, lots of mineral aromas as well. Taste is sour, metallic, with funky and grainy aftertaste. Palate is well carbed, med bodied and dry. Has held up surprisingly well. tom10101 (6311) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by a friend of Tyler. Very old bottle (30+ years), from before Boon. Clear golden/orange with a frothy white head and some lacing. Aroma is very finky and acidic presence and wood, but unfortunaly there’s a good amount of nail polish. Taste is very acidic too with nail polish, light caramel and lemony notes. Medium body. Lively carbonation (surprising for a bottle that old). Dry finish. Not bad at all considering the age. Too acidic and some defaults, but certainly an interesting one to try.

Older bottle, 75CL champagne size. Pour was great, 2 finger thick frothy head, muted orange appearance, minor haziness but not bad. Nose was dry, crisp, lemon grass and tea. Taste was quite acidic, some acetone and leather / shoe polish. Maybe just slightly too sweet but I finished my glass and would drink it again.
