Vintage 1989. Bottle from Jef, memy thanks.
Aroma of honey and raspberries. Taste is very sweet, almost like mead. Flavor of honey, tea, raspberries. Weird stuff, nothing to do with lambic, but still interesting beer. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle - Vintage 1987 - Sweet and mellow jammy strawberry. Clear Amber with a small white head. Sweet syrupy cooked strawberry. This old vintage has taken the sweetness and mellowed it out with a really nice cooked fruit notes. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp. Clear orange/copper beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity grape and raspberry aroma, raisins, vinous, woody notes, some sweet vinegar. Citrus and raspberry flavor, raisins, grapes, vinous, some wood. Kinda sweet, lacking carbonation. But still quite ok and definately glad to gave tried it. Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Well-balanced ’compromis’ framboise with both commercial sweetness and subtle lambic-like funkiness, true raspberry taste as well as sugar. Tasted many years ago from tap at Botteltje in Ostend. Too bad Eylenbosch of Schepdaal went the way of the dodo in 1991, every lambic brewery disappearing is a loss for Belgian beer culture. Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle of 1994. Slight oxidation, raspberry finish, flat carbonization but still a round body for its age. Wonderful beer!

Bottle at Kulminator. Clear deep reddish brown liquid with a small white head. Aroma of cardboard, bread, cinnamon, raspberries and lemon’. Taste is light sweet and light sour with notes of raspberries, cinnamon and bread. Medium bodied with very low carbonation. Still nice, probably a great beer once.

1987 Vintage. 330mL bottle, pours a clear bronze amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out faded raspberries, funk, and cardboard. Flavour is very soft, with sweet raspberries, followed by only a touch of funk and maybe a hint of oxidation. The raspberries are surprisingly front and centre, with not a whole lot of funk or even oxidation. Carbonation is very soft, almost flat. This has stood up well. Very good stuff.

Bottle from Kulminator (1987). Hazy deep amber pour, no head. Aroma is toasty, dead and oxidized, carboardy, no raspberry aroma left. Taste of cardborad, chalk, ever so slight kind of light sweet fruitiness. Completely dead. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (375 ml) @ Kulminator. Vintage 1987. Hazy cola colour with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of raspberry jam, but there’s also a ton of garbage juice, cardboard and oxidation that takes all the place. The taste is of artificial raspberry jam that has gotten pretty bad (if that’s even possible) along carboard, garbage juice and the most horrendous aftertaste I have ever had in my life including after vomiting. Watery. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. This one bad enough to make the Timmermans Woudvruchten we had at the same time look like a stellar lambic.

Bottle @ Kulminator. Red brown colour. Aroma of red fruit (raspberries) and artificial sweeters. This beer is over the top. Too old and some cardboard taste.
