Draught at Plan B. Hazy red coloured with a light pink head. Aroma of raspberries with some sweetness and woody and acidic notes. Nice flavour with lots of raspberries and notes of wood and some acidic notes. Finish of berries and wood. Very balanced.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty, pale reddish colour, small head. Pronounced raspberry nose. Very raspberry flavour with a discreet sweetness on an underlying tart base. Nicely balanced between the sweet and the sour. Lovely Framboise considering this was never really my favourite style. 170598

jonas (7400) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Bottled, vintage 89 @ Akkurat Nice sweet and tart frambozy aroma. Hazy strawberry color, creamy lacing head. Mellow on berries, sweet with slightly dusty roasted edges. Light berry dryness, sparkly mouthfeel.

Tap, Vintage 86 @ Plan B
Cloudy red, off white creamy head. Big fruity aroma - extremely fruity for its age actually. Brilliant balance of fruit vs. Sourness, marzipan red fruits pralines with port. Sparkly dry mouthfeel

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2004
Draught, Plan b. Fruity with notes of biscuit and caramel. Refreshing acidity in the finish. Well balanced but could use a little more lambic character.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2004
On [email protected] b Copenhagen. Ive tasted this 15 years old gem quite a few times over the last couple of months. Every keg is different in colour and taste, But every one of them is wonderfull. The balance between the sweetnes from the raspberries, and the acidicty from the lambic is outstanding. I recomend that everyone who can, get a sample of this beer. But save some for me!

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2004
Draft at Plan B, Copenhagen. Allegedly they have the last kegs in the world, aged approximately 15 years. My favourite lambic beer (so far). Very nice raspberry notes and an excellent balance between the sweet fruitiness and the refreshing acidity! According to our host Eylenbosch used 300 g (10,6 ounces) of fresh raspberries for every 37,5 cl bottle!?

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Draft @ Plan B, Copenhagen. This sample was about 15 years old. Plan B has only a couple of kegs left of this fine brew, its the last kegs of this beer in the world!!! Light red body, bubbly, no head. Nice sweet raspberry nose, backed up by some sourness and nice fruityness. Very sour flavor, raspberries of course, dry, woody and a another late sourness. This beer is so balanced. Very nice beer, have to try it again. About 6.5$ for a 25 cl sample!!!

Oakes (17003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
Orangey-amber colour. Aroma is slightly grapey, raspberryish with leather and horseblanket. Fairly sweet - raspberries with cream - leading to a late, appley tartness. Sweet & sour, sugary, fruity finish. 1989 vintage, tasted at 15 years of age.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 On [email protected] B, Copenhagen (around about 15 years old sample). Unbelievable how balanced this is given the age. Amazingly there is some sweet (and quite fresh) framboise at the front of the tongue, it the quickly turns to a slightly sour, tart palate, with some aged mustyness/woodyness, nice dry finish, and very moreish, something i could have sat down and drank all day, if it wasnt so expensive, delicious.

madsberg (11705) - Sborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2004 Draught @ Plan B, Vintage 1989 : Amber coloured. Unclear. Not much head, but it sure looks beutiful anyway. The nose is almost perfect. Full of fruits and some sour notes. Not so earthy as the really sour one, but still classy. Flavour is very fresh, acidic and fruity. There is a citric sourness the perfectly matches the fruitsweetness. Has a delicious full and complex body. Is dry, sweet and light sour in the end. Is very refreshing and cleansing. This is a tough one to beat.
Bottled, Vintage 1989 (9,4,9,4,18): Orange/light red coloured. Dusty. Light beige impressive head. Raspberries, sweetness and other fruitnotes in the aroma. Is light citric . Flavour is fruity with a subtle sourness underlying. Light spiced. Very smooth and balanced. Has a nice sourish fruitflavour in the end. Refreshing. Looking forward to try this from tap at Plan B.
