Notes from 2011: 1999 Vintage 75 cl. bottle@Kulminator: no label, completely covered by dust, appearance is slightly hazy, light golden with nearly no head, smell is lots of musty, sour lemons, plenty of horse blanket, rainwater, tart, barnyard funk & minor leather, taste is lots of sour lemon acid, light rotting lemons, plenty of barnyard funk, acidic, light pepper, sour slightly watery, definitely not as extreme as I expected something like this to be but certainly very nice.

Drank another 75 cl. bottle later on, no notes but tasted lovely.

Notes from 2013: Sampled one of these again from 1999 - probably overrated this one a bit but didn’t take proper notes so I will leave the score for what it is. Still not a bad one esp. compared to the new stuff.

Shared with Ronny and Rita on 11 August 2011 at Kulminator. A dusty, unlabeled bottle of De Troch [Oude] Gueuze from 1999. 

An aggressive pour by Leen results in a gold body with ample carbonation. 

Incredible smell. Old shoes. Stanky cheese. Rotting peaches. 

Taste is over the top. Cheap Camembert rind, chlorine, a mild acidity, old lemon, tart candy, malodorous socks. Yes :-)

Mouthfeel is simply smooth and dry. 

So! full of character. It was a bit overwhelming and a good beer to split. Would gladly enjoy again.

Tried at De Heeren van Liedekercke; July 2010
The beer pours with a very fluffy, pillowy, pale colored head. The beer is a lightly hazed, gold-straw color. The aroma smells of woody mushrooms, definitely musky, funkified, interesting overly ripe farmhouse cheese aromatics as well as having notes of straw and wheat towards the finish. A lactic tartness is noticeable in the nose and brings about a touch of lemon-like character or even some notes of grapefruit.

The beer is extremely tart and sour up front and finishes with a solid astringency. There is a very woody mushroom character here that is followed by a rip farmhouse cheese note. Lots of sweat soaked, sun cured blanket character further enhances the funkiness of this brew; this almost epitomizes the farmhouse funkiness that is found in Lambics, it also is bracingly lactic with hints of lemon and rounded tart grapefruit flavors. Warming brings out a hint of acetic spiciness that boosts the complexity even a bit more.

This is really my type of Gueuze; bracing sourness, extremely funky, so complex, yet so light and spritzy. This beer captures quite well in its character why I love Lambic so much. Surprisingly, this blows the 3 Fonteinen that a friend is drinking out of the water.
