GUSHER ALERT! Cloudy yellow beer, big fluffy white head, little stable, non adhesive, yeasty or protein chunks floating around. Aroma: lots of yeast, yoghurt, floral, dairy, hay, some honey, bit funky, saison like. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: honey, orange peel, bit spicy, herbal, some alcohol, honey, pretty oxidised, but not bad at all! Aftertaste: alcohol is clearly present, cookie dough, honey, spices, very floral, little bitter, yeasty. I was very surprised at the high drinkability of this aged beer!
1.5L magnum courtesy of Kraddel @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Vintage 2005, bottle #81, BB 2008.
Dorée trouble laissant qcq sédiments, col blanc épais.
Arôme de grains tirant vers le maïs, houblon frais pour un fruité moyen.
Palais de grains avec ce côté vieille bière belge typique que l’on retrouve dans ces bières qui ont passés l’age. Malt caramel pour un houblonné encore bien présent. Les 10% assurent une fin de bouche réchauffante tout en ne venant pas dominer. Ok, mais une bière qui à vraiment passé l’age et ne vaut certainement pas les 55€.
Au final, se vaut encore malgré l’age. Heureusement que cette dernière était à 10% car une simple blonde n’aurait certainement pas survécu. 77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013

Magnum, bottle 81, courtesy of kraddel, thank you! Gusher. Cloudy yellow color, massive white head. Aroma of rising raw bread dough, lemon, honey. Taste is sweet lemon, straw. A shadow of its former self, still very drinkable, but it’s evident it was a good one while young. gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
magnum bottle sample at the epic beer tasting - yellow hay colour with. Aroma of thyme and rosemary. Mouthfeel was sweet (and maderised), taste was malty and flowery (next to madeira) BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2012
I finally had the chance of opening my 1,5l bottle up at a tasting Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2012
Bottle number 10 !
Colour: yellow, gold
Smell: Little oxidated, lactose, sour, bitter , citric
Taste: tripel with a little bit flavour of the oxidation, but still quite good.
2005 Magnum at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. It pours cloudy yellow (my pour was from towards the bottom of the bottle), with a thin white head. The nose is quite sweet - caramelised banana, peach and pear, as well as spice and honey. The taste is similarly sweet, lots of sweet over-ripe banana, as well as spice, herb and white sugar, with a massive boozy finish (deep burn). Interesting and I am glad to have tried this, but this blond was a bit over the hill......
