Bottled on 01 March 2005 - fresh for "at least ten years":

Pours reddish pink with a head that becomes a lasting thick swirling patch.

The smell is of fresh dark cherries, vanilla, oak and a vinuous, earthy - gueuze-like undertone.

The taste is of fresh dark cherries with vanilla, oak and a gueuze mustiness mixed in. It is well-balanced among sweet, tart and sour. Cherry-fruitiness becomes almost plum-like as it progresses. It finishes very dry.

The feel is creamy and full for style with a long lasting aftertaste.

A well-done lambic - cherries very real-tasting. Nice mix of lambic and gueuze. Good oaky touch. Pricey, but worth it as a special treat.
