Bottle shared at the epic sour sourpuss tasting, massive thanks to a non-ratebeer friend. Pours fairly hazy golden with an off white head. Aroma of big funk and horse blanket, oak, musty cellar, dank, mold and old tart fruits. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and light moderate sour. Velvety smooth mouthfeel and incredibly complex palate, developing with each sip. Leather coming out and light citrus touches. Full bodied with (still!) light carbonation. Feel so lucky to have had the chance to try this. Damn..,

9/XI/12 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - brewed: '94-'97, bottled: 1998 (2012-1259) Huge thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy orange to pale amber beer, small aery white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: some banana, lemony, bit dusty, peppery, wood tones, moulded cork. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lemony sour start, bitter undertone, grape skin, dry, bit peppery. Aftertaste: dusty, moulded cork, dry tannins, citric acidity, pretty bitter again, woody, a little off. Beer has survived well, but it's not as amazing as some people claim.

Bottle shared @ the Sour & Bitter event in Copenhagen. Pours hazy reddish golden with a huge frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is sour with lemon juice, hay, funk, barnyard, grapefruit juice, leather, sweat, apples, horse blanket, plums and pleasant and suiting hints of oxidation. Taste is swour with apples, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, hay, leather, lemon zest, barnyard, grape zest, horse blanket and hints of oxidation. Mouthfeel is smooth, tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is sour and tart with lemon juice, orange peal, leather, apples and horse blanket. Amazing!

Bottle shared by Koopa at Alan’s tasting. Thanks Dennis! Pours apricot with white head. Nose and taste of earthy tart apricot, champagne yeast, funky lemons and salted apple skins. Wonderful.

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Tampabrew. De couleur dorée avec une note paille pour un léger trouble. Plate. Vinaigre et astringente au palais tout comme à l’arôme, note de blé, citron. Le tonneau donne à la bière ce cote vinaigre que l’on retrouve dans d’autres bières aussi âgées dans ce type de foudre de chêne. Même avec l’age, cette dernière conserve assez d’effervescence qui montre à quel point ce type de bière continue à évoluer en bouteille. Content d’avoir pu la déguster de par sa rareté sans pour cela être une bière qui change le style.

nimbleprop’s quote of the evening: "Millennium shits on Yellow bus!" 750 ml bottle brought to Epic Sour tasting 2010. Clear golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma of white pepper, dust, sweat. Taste is tart and dry, citrus, great body. Very nice, but tastes below its hype. 4.2 Second tasting, at 3-F tasting with Armand and his wife. Much better body, more dry, lots more must and grapefruit. Revised to 4.6

750mL bottle shared by puzzl, thanks Andy. It is a thick, dusty, golden color that one cannot see through. Aroma is all rubber and horse-hay with citric spikes. Very intense and pure aged 3F aroma. Flavor is surprisingly different, very calm, intensity turned down. Its just like citric juice, has a bit of a meaty character to it. Has a very dry citric finish.

Für 27,50 Euro im Biercafe De Heeren van Liedekerke getrunken (geteilt mit dem Doppelbock). Säuerlicher, aber kontrollierter Geruch, angenehm. Das Bier startet prickelnd und leicht säuerlich, deutlich fruchtig. Dabei wird die Geuze immer saurer, was den Geschmack aber nicht volkommend ausfüllt. Fruchtige Aromen sind immer präsent, auch würzige Töne können durchgehend erkannt werden. Minimal brotig, überaus vollmundig, sehr süffig, ausgewogen, eine ständigeÄnderung der Aromen von Anfang bis Ende - super!
