Thoughts: *The Loerik was an outstanding bottle, one of the better examples I've had. *The 1991 Kersengueuze was one of my favorites at the tasting, very well balanced between tart & cherries and not showing it's true age. *The Cognac Lambic destroyed the new batch 50N...excellent beer. *The Cuvee Neuf Nations was horrid, cork fell into the beer, tasted like pond water. *Don Quijote is the best lambic I've ever had...again & again. *New batch Blåbær needs a lot of time...don't open your bottles unless you'd like a letdown. *Bill is a gracious host. *I don't want a beer today. Cheers guys!
